AlbumMaker Version 1.4 - a Webgallery and Photoalbum
AlbumMaker is a very small and handy webbased Photoalbum and Gallery.
You can use it to make you pictures visible to you friends by internet
and let them write some comments to each picture (like a guestbook), or
just for your own purpose to have an album of your pics. The only things
you need, are a perl interpreter, the GDLib, the GD perl module, the CGI
perl module and a webserver.
AlbumMaker creates two different picture sizes: a Thumbnail and a ca. 600x800
big one. The original is kept too.
Just unzip and untar the package:
tar zxvf AlbumMaker-<Version>.tar.gz
Then copy the hole new directory to your DocumentRoot of the webserver or
another directory where the webserver has access.
Edit the index.cgi file and configure it by your needs. Important is the
'$base =' which should be the absolute path of albummaker.
Copy a folder with JPEGs to your $base/albums and chown it to the
user apache (or your webserver) runs on. Then chmod it to 0770, so
the webserver's user can modify the album.
After that, access your abummaker with your favorite Browser and click
on 'Admin' (on the left top of the menu). There you can click on the
desired album to create.
On the config screen you can choose the quality for the two jpeg
formats: the thumbnail and the bigview.
If you 'delete' an Album, the original Pictures will be restored and
held in the directory.
