Projects / AuctionGallery


AuctionGallery is a terminal script that creates picture galleries for the purpose of putting them into auctions like eBay or Yahoo! Auctions. It can also be used to automatically generate HTML templates for auction descriptions. It is aimed at power-sellers who have hundreds of products listed every day and need an efficient way of generating galleries and organizing pictures in a coherent directory structure.
