I wonder if anyone has experienced or solved this workflow issue relating to non-HTML web galleries.

I have been using EM2 (SP1) to generate HTML web galleries, then uploading them to my website. I want to begin using flash-based web galleries to reduce the ability of people to right-click on a photo and download it.

Jalbum with FotoPlayer skins is my choice of web gallery software. However, this will place an extra step into my workflow. I assign a unique keyword to photo files that are intended for a web gallery. As I see it, I'll have to export these files to a temporary holding folder, then generate the web gallery from the files in this folder.

Has anyone come up with a better way?

Thanks,

Bill Rogers

I have no idea about JAlbum, but does it need an XML file?

Bill,
There are several processes I do with Expression where I need to do a multi-step process like you describe.  I don't find it to be too cumbersome.

One suggestion, rather than use keywords for this, I'd suggest using Catalog Sets.  That way you can have a record of each web gallery you build - it can even hold the sorting order if you're using something other than time of capture.
