I was disappointed when I found out that iWeb can only be published to a .mac account. While I love my Mac OS I have become increasingly disappointed with many of Apple’s business tactics. It all started with “.mac” and “free for life.” But that is a rant for another day. Back to iWeb.
Apparently there is a work around solution out there for publishing sites created with iWeb even if you don’t have a .mac account. While you cannot publish direct, you can follow what are most likely a few fairly simple steps if you know what you are doing. However, it all seems rather complicated and I simply don’t have the time or the energy to attempt it right now.
So I have found a simple way to use some of the cool little iWeb graphics and features to create some interesting stuff for my blog. I use the Grab application to select the photo or graphic and then save it as a .tiff file. Then I open in Preview and save it as a jpeg. These were easy. Now on to something bigger.
