Part 5 - Publishing of the Flash SlideShow Maker. flash slideshow maker patch
When you are ready to publish your slideshow online or to a local drive for testing you should go to "Gallery/Publish". Select the publishing method: publish to folder or publish to FTP server.
- publish to folder. To select a local location on your hard drive, just click the Browse folders button and choose a location. Then click Ok. You can also set "Open web page after publishing" option.
- publish to FTP server. The FTP Location Manager window enables you to define a number of connections for use when uploading your slideshow to an FTP.
You are able to add a new FTP site by clicking "Edit" to the right of the "Publish to FTP server" drop down list. FTP Location Manager window will appear. Now type in a meaningful (this is not the actual hostname) name for your site and fill in the FTP details in the appropriate fields. You will have to type in your hostname, e.g. domain. The FTP port is normally located on port 21 thus this has been prefilled for you already. If your web site uses another port, you will have to enter it here.
Type in your username and password for the connection. If you do not fill in this information, Free Flash SlideShow Maker is unable to connect to your site and thus not able to upload your slideshow to website. If this site enables anonymous connections, just type in anonymous as the username and your e-mail address as the password.
You might want to change the Directory as well if you need to have your uploaded images placed in e.g. "www/gallery/". You can specify it in the FTP Folder field on the Publish window.
Notice: Write the name of the folder where your slide show will be placed on the server. Notice that you should specify this field; otherwise your slideshow will be uploaded into the root folder of your server!
Part 6 - Save your slide show as project file.
When you exit Free Flash SlideShow Maker, you'll be asked if you want to save your project. The project consists of the pictures you choose to put on your slideshow and all your settings. It's a good idea to save the project, because that will allow you to change the project in case you decide to do something different with future slideshows. So click Yes, then enter a name for your project. To select the location of your project, just click the Browse folders button and choose a different location. Then click Save.
