AutoScrapbook helps automate the creation and maintenance of an online photo gallery. It creates the thumbnails and Web pages for you by asking you for descriptions of the pictures. It works best when run under Linux and within X (for picture viewing), but you could use it through only a terminal and a separate browser if necessary. It can optionally allow you to delete, rename, and rotate images during the description process. It can also use the programs exif, exiftags, and/or jhead to access EXIF data from the images and/or store descriptions within the JPEG header. Note that this program creates a static Web site around existing images, using the existing directory structure as the heirarchy for the Web site.

HouseSpider is a Java applet that adds indexing and search capability to Web sites. It can search by two methods: by spidering through the site, or by searching a cached index file. Spider-searching is slow, but very easy to set up and requires no maintenance. Cache-searching requires only a little more attention to set up and is sometimes even faster than CGI programs. HouseSpider also supports compression of the index file and boolean searches. Translations for several languages are provided, and it can handle Web sites in any language or encoding.
