LiveFrame Gallery

LiveFrame Gallery is an easily-customized photo album and slideshow application. Its interface focuses your user's attention on your photographs, not on navigation, allowing them to easily click through sequentially, select from thumbnails, or view an automated slideshow. Users can select from up to five different image sizes to view, based on their display size and network connection. All pages are template based, allowing you to easily customize the entire interface.

      great program
      Some reasons why I like (and use) liveframe:

      1. It has very spiffy viewing modes, and produces
      very nice pages. It uses templates for all pages,
      so it is easy to customize.

      2. It is a single, well-written Perl script, easy to understand, to check for security problems, and to modify. I wanted to store the images on another site (where running cgi programs is not possible), and
      modifying liveframe for this was child's play.

      3. It does not autogenerate thumbnails. I have many images, some in 'portrait', some in 'landscape' mode, some need to be rotated, and some need to be thrown away ... preprocessing them with a little
      script is much easier than e.g. fumbling around with some interactive gallery app.

      Some drawbacks:

      1. Lack of input validation (easy to fix).

      2. The templates include a stylesheet, but don't make much use of it, therefore
      modifications must always be done in several places.

      3. The navigation looks spiffy, but is actually difficult to use for computer illiterates (default images too small, resize option requires two actions - choose size and click 'resize' -, and the start page for a gallery forces users to read which options are provided - gosh!).
