PicBook automatically produces a photo album in HTML format of your scanned images or photographs. It come with automatic image processing, slideshow, transition effects, and other nifty features. It is easy to customise with its configuration file and HTML-templates. PicBook is a Bourne shell script and therefore should run on any Unix or Linux system. It requires the standard grep and awk commands, which should be available on most systems. Additionally, it needs the "convert" and "identify" commands from the ImageMagick package to handle images.
makethumbs is a Bourne shell script which creates static HTML image galleries suitable for web or CDROM presentations. It is designed for portability and depends on the fewest possible helper programs. You can simply run makethumbs in a directory of JPEGs and get a usable set of web pages. If you have the time, you can add captions, descriptions, and create a dotrc file to completely change the look and feel of the generated gallery. A small helper script, rotate.sh, is also available to easily fix rotated images.
easyGG is an automatic gallery generator. It features automatic image rotation based on EXIF info, automatic scaling for Web usage, automatic generation of linked pages, and an index page with thumbnails. When executed in a directory with JPEG or PNG images, it creates a subdirectory with a ready-to-use gallery.
dialog-mp3-list generates an organized list of your CDs and directories of MP3s. It shows a numbered list of MP3s with information on their encoding speed and track lengths. It uses Dialog/XDialog and Latex to create lists in .tex, .ps, and .pdf formats, and uses English or Brazilian Portuguese.
PhotoFS is a Web-based photo album or image gallery, based on the files-as-directories and attributes-as-files concepts at the core of the ReiserFS 4 filesystem. It does not require ReiserFS 4, but is much more efficient on that system than on others. It does many of the same things as other Web galleries, at least as far as the basics go. What makes it different is its use of the filesystem instead of a database. It allows you to use regular unix tools to access your photo collection. It can handle very large collections, and also encourages multiple categories per file, deep category hierarchies, and batch processing.
image2mpeg is a tool to convert digital photos (or any other images) into MPEG video streams, with transitions between the images. The photo stream may be accompanied with music (or any other audio stream). The resulting slideshow may be prepared for VCD, SVCD, or DVD playback in stand-alone players, or the MPEG videos may be converted into FLV (Flash Videos). The type of transition can be selected for each image separately from a set of fade, slide, roll, etc.
Infojection provides a multimedia playback system. It is ideally suited to digital signage, plasma screen advertising, and public information screens. Players connected to projectors or big screens are able to display a variable schedule of Live TV or video, digital video like DivX, MPEG, Flash, MS PowerPoint, or HTML. Other possibilities can be realized through plugins. A Java/Tomcat Web app provides the Media Manager. Media is imported, scheduled, and then distributed to a potentially massive number of players and screens.
DVD-Baker generates a DVD consisting of menus and slideshows from a picture collection stored in a Menalto Gallery G2 Web site or in a locally stored directory tree. Each "leaf" album (an album that does not contain sub-albums) is used to create a slideshow. The slideshows (and any DVD-ready MPEG videos) are made accessible on the DVD with menus that follow the structure of the Web site or directories. Extra features include random or sequential autoplay, and audio support. Since dvd-slideshow is used to produce each slideshow, it supports effects such as crossfades, crops, and 'Ken Burns' effects.
