PhotoAlbum.pl Copyright 2002 Brian C. Lane This is a simple perl script to create a photoalbum of a directory of pictures suitable for posting to a webpage or burning onto a cdrom. It requires perl, Image Magick, File::copy, File::Basename, POSIX and Getopt::Std perl modules. Install the PhotoAlbum.pl script into /usr/local/bin The buttons used for the Album (contained in the buttons directory) should be placed into the directory pointedto by the $button_path variable. By default it is set to /usr/local/share/PhotoAlbum/buttons/ You can change a few of the options at runtime using these switches: -c turns off captions -f turn off filename -s turn off file size -g turn off geometry -i "string" Title for Index Pages -p "string" Title for Individual Pages By default PhotoAlbum will prompt you for a caption for each picture, displaying the picture as you enter the text. It will include the filename, size of the image and image geometry unless the switch is passed on the command line. You can set the title of the indexes and the titles of the individual pages using the -i and -p arguments. To create an album, change to a directory full of images, with no sub-directories or extra files. It needs to be plain images, preferrably .jpg but it should work fine with other types. Run PhotoAlbum while in the cirectory and it will report as it creates the thumbnail images in the thumbnail directory. It will then start displaying the images (using Image Magick's display program) and prompt you to enter a caption for each of the images. When finished you can point your web browser at the index.html page to view the images. If you have any comments or suggestions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Brian Lane 06/30/2002
