a project file and keep it open.
From the File menu select Publish

Note: The FTP settings (login name, password and default folder for upload files) are provided by your web hosting company upon signup.
Click Upload on the Publishing Window, please wait until the status bar is fully loaded. You can change the remote folder if necessary.
You will see a message "Upload Complete" on the popup box, with a URL of your website for you to view your website online instantly. If the URL is not correct, you can also change the URL setting manually.
For version v2.06 or above, the published files will include a folder named a4gallery and a file photogallery.htm.
The a4gallery folder includes the following:
For older versions, the published files include a folder named a4gallery_images, files AC_RunActiveContent.js, index.swf, data.xml and index.html.
You can edit the HTML file: photogallery.htm (or index.html in older versions) directly. You can rename it (such as "index.htm" for your homepage) or add content to it, like a link to other pages of your web site. Upload all the published files to your server, and you can view your gallery online.
