With a single button-click, Publish for Approval will allow you to web-publish selected Aperture images and know exactly which ones the customer wants to use — with their choices automatically displayed for you in Aperture!
The Publish for Approval system uses the built-in web-hosting abilities of your computer, to serve webpages from your computer over the Internet for your clients to view.
Naturally, this requires that the computer containing your Aperture library be connected to the Internet, preferably via ethernet to a cable or DSL modem.
If your computer is connected to the Internet via a wireless network, see the sidebar on how to enable your network to publish to the Internet.
Follow these simple steps to setup the Publish for Approval system:
1. Download and unpack the archive that contains the Publish for Approval application and related banner template files.
2. Create a banner image for your webpages using the templates included with the Publish for Approval system. You can create multiple banners as each set of published client images can have its own banner. Be sure to save the banner images in PNG format.
3. Turn on Personal Web Sharing in the Services tab of the Sharing system preference.
