how to make photo album

Hi,

I tried to find software that can help me to make web pages with my photo from this year holidays for my friends. I found a great number of them. Have anyone used some or can you please recommend one.

Thanks.

Great tool! It works great for me and I like the excellent support from Rea company.

In the past I've also used David Ekholm's JAlbum, you can try it too. Hope it helps!

I don't know if all of them run on Windows, though. All of them operate without a GUI, but that doesn't detract from their usefulness.

Most of the free ones break into two groups:

1. PHP, using a ported version of GD/ImageMagick to Unix or Windows, they usually batch creates (or on the fly) thumbnails and catalogs. And will serve 640/800/1024 resizing once you zoom in.

2. ASP, usually bundled with a free image processing component (because quality commercial ones are usually hundreds of dollars).. does same thing basically.

Alright, some spoon feeding.. here's the one I use:

PHP version: http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpix/

Here's the one I use.  Java 1.3, with image preview and template-based generation (using FreeMarker if you grab the latest sources from CVS).  I contributed some code but the original author seems to have disappeared.

Unfortunately no homepage, docs, or support.  I might at some point clean up the project and add features, but it's low priority...

I usually whip up a perl script and use ImageMagick to create the thumbnail and make it single step in a shell script. Expect about 45 minutes the first time and 5-10 minutes everytime you change the layout.

I just whipped up my own using Python, XSLT, XML, and the Python Imaging Library in a few hours.  For the primary reason that I wanted to goof with stuff I have yet to goof with.

w.h.

This topic was discussed (search the archives) about 2 - 4 weeks ago. I tried most of the alternatives mentioned, and found that:

Was the best I encountered - for free, anyway. ;-)

Do you still say the same thing now?!

BTW, can anyone please / does anyone want to help me fight illegal online pharmacies?

A short while ago, the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) ruled that online pharmacies that provide so called "online doctor consultations / prescriptions" were illegal. I did not know, and ordered some medications from www.phentermine-gs.com. I now know why they are illegal (the owner I believe is an Iraqi Bath Party fund raiser, and they took my money only to fail to ship my medications, they said the physician declined me, and then it took a whole week to get my money back, they say it takes my bank that long to show refunds - I do not believe them!).

Anyway, they sell all manner of drugs which I believe they should not, for example (check this out) <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/">Diet Pills</a> - I mean, what happens if a 12 year old girl with some desire to become a waif model and using her mom's credit card orders these pills? Because the doctor does not see the patient, I am sure it happens. What amazes me further that many of the slimming pills they sell are controlled drugs! For example, <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/phentermine.shtml">Phentermine</a> AKA <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/adipex.shtml">Adipex</a> and <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/ionamin.shtml">Ionamin</a>. Also other classified appetite suppressants such as <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/meridia.shtml">Meridia</a>, <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/bontril.shtml">Bontril</a> and <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/tenuate.shtml">Tenuate</a>! But the worst of these obesity medications is <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/didrex.shtml">Didrex</a>, which I understand is a class 4 drug!!!! OK, one of their weight loss pills <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/xenical.shtml">Xenical</a> is a fat blocker, not an appetite suppressant. But just imagine it getting into the hands of someone with anorexic tendencies!

But they do not just sell diet pills, oh no! They also sell things like <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/viagra.shtml">Viagra</a> male impotence pills from Pfizer. I saw a report the other day linking Viagra to making men unable to have babies (or contribute to having babies). So I think a real doctor with the patient in front of them needs to prescribe such drugs, and only a real doctor! I mean, I heard that drugs like <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/zyban.shtml">Zyban</a> smoking cessation tablets and <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/propecia.shtml">Propecia</a> male pattern baldness pills have several nasty side effects. And <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/ultram.shtml">Ultram</a> pain relief capsules can be very dangerous in the wrong hands. Also, what women in her right mind would want to order <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/ortho_tri_cyclen.shtml">Ortho Tri-Cyclen Birth Control Pills</a> from a medical web site?!

Even the skin creams they sell maybe harmful. I mean, you know how much pressure on teenagers there are these days. How many of them would love to get their hands on some <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/retin_a.shtml">Retin-A acne remover</a>, <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/vaniqa.shtml">Vaniqa facial hair remover</a> and / or <a href="http://www.phentermine-gs.com/renova.shtml">Renova skin wrinkle remover</a>?

Do you see what I mean, it is wrong yes? Pease help me stop this illegal RX meds site and file a complaint against them with the DEA!
