program for photo-album creation advice needed
Posted 06 September 2006 - 07:52 AM
I'm looking for a good Windows/Linux, open source program that can do the following:
- automatic thumbnail generation
- easy image resizing
- image web optimization
The goal: i want to upload my photo album to my site, but I don't want to waste my time on manipulating each photo.

IrfanView will also generate the gallery page for you.

There is also JAlbum, a cross-platform java-based application specifically made for album generation. I like its interface and you can even get a QT-look in linux.
If you want to use command-line, apart from convert/mogrify of ImageMagick there is also perl-based "album", that you can use. I haven't used it myself, but you see a lot of referemces to it on people's galleries.
Apart from being cross-platform, both "album" and JAlbum support skins and come with plenty of them, so you can change the look and layout of your album in just seconds.

Picasa is great for Windows, but it adds an unwanted frame to thumbnails.
About ImageMagick - sounds like a good program but i don't want to mess with CLI and various scripts, thanks for an option anyway.

As an aside question, I recently began using 2006 and the digikam packages were not included in the free iso image. Is this by design at Mandriva to encourage people to become members?
