Next choose a page template. iWeb features ready-made templates for welcome, about me, photo album, movie, blog, and podcast pages. Create as many pages as you like.

Then it’s time to customize your layout with easy-to-use iWeb tools. Drag in photos or movies or type text into placeholders. Resize and rotate photos. Create overlays. There’s no coding required. No complicated design programs to buy. No obstacles between you and a great-looking website.
