Lightroom Web Galleries can be a great way to display your photography.  Most likely you have your own website (which I recommend vs Smugmug, Wix, etc) and displaying a nice way to make photos appear on the page is desirable. 

The galleries are quite simple to use and setup, they just require a bit of tweaking to be sure they fit your website.  I am going to go over how to add one to your website via an IFRAME html element which will allow you to load it inside of your website with the sidebar, headers, etc showing as usual.

I mentioned a few programs in the video. First is Mozilla Firefox. I've been using Firefox as my primary browser for about 4 or 5 years. If you are an IE user its time to step up! Firefox allows plugins to run inside of the browser. I mentioned three of them. FireFTP, Firebug, and Colorzilla. FireFTP allows you to upload content to your FTP server, Firebug can easily show you how your website code is performing and displaying, and Colorzilla has a great color picker and eyedropper for finding just the right color for your website. Enjoy!

Excellent video. Tried my first attempt at a web album with Lightroom last week, not great. Now I've a better idea of how to do it. Keep these tutorials coming :-)

How do I deactivate right click and copy image so to protect my images after they're uploaded?

Don't bother. If the images are in the viewer's browser then they can copy them one way or another. All you can do is watermark them.

I doubt you can. You need website hosting in order for this to work.

Hi Greg, first let me say I love your videos and watch them all (just so you'll now you have fans even here in Israel :-) ). Always learning something new.

Second, have you checked what is the size of the file to site compared to the size of the total photos ? Is that effect the quality of them ?

Not sure what you mean, please explain more?

Yep. If I understand correctly, the images are rapped into the flash file or resized to the html package.

Let's say I have 3 6MB each photos. Will the export file to the site will be 18MB or will it be compressed\ resize during the export ?

They are resized and have jpeg compression. The entire gallery is a little over 8megs as shown.
