      What does Lightroom's Web module do and how do I use it?

        With the Web module you can create image galleries which can be uploaded to your website. The customizable pages are perfect for online portfolios and contact sheets to share your work with your audience or clients. Web module panels and tools gives a brief overview of what you'll find when you enter the module. Once you have selected the images you want to upload, you can specify web gallery layouts to start working based upon an existing template and then adjust it to your liking. If you like the adjustments you've made, then you can create custom web gallery templates. You can even save web settings as a web collection. Once you have setup what you want, you'll preview, export, and upload web photo galleries. Having set up your connect to your website, you can create and manage FTP presets.
