      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

program for photo-album creation

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

 

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.

 

Thank you.

I'm pretty sure IrfanView will do it for Windows, maybe you can get it working in Wine. Not sure under Linux of an equivalent.

 

IrfanView will also generate the gallery page for you.

I am sure that you can write some scripts for imagemagic to do all this for you.. it has thousands of options..

 

imagemagic :huh: ??

Picasa, KPhotoAlbum (in cooker, presently kimdaba), digiKam can all export html-albums with thumbnails. I believe, for gnome-based applications it's the same.

 

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.

Apparently gThumb can do all I asked so I'll stick to it.

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.

 

Thanks everybody.

Well, i've downloaded a JAlbum.bin file, how do i open it in linux? It seems like i don't have a java runtime environment installed.

I use the Konqueror Image gallery for mass-thumbnailing and also for mass-image-resizing coupled with a simple shell script to move the images once I've resized them. If I knew of the command-line interface to Konqueror Image Gallery, I'd put the calls right in the shell script itself to simplify the steps.

 

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?
