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.
JumpBox for Gallery Photo Management is a virtual appliance for the Gallery photo management system, which helps you to manage and integrate photos with your Web site by creating unlimited photo albums and storing and sharing them easily using features such RSS, commenting, and email notification. Running a JumpBox allows you to be up and running with this software in minutes on any operating system. It carries other benefits such as portability across computing environments, a Web-based admin console to simplify administration, and a built-in automated backup system to protect your work. Once you've deployed one JumpBox, you'll be able to deploy any of over 50 great Open Source applications regardless of the underlying technologies utilized.
Lifebox is a fast, lightweight, social photo and video gallery application that is designed to organize large amounts of media. It is able to differentiate between original and modified photos so you can upload your entire library to your server and highlight your favorite photos and videos into albums to share with friends. Lifebox also makes a distinction between albums and rolls, so a single photo or video can be part of multiple albums but only one roll. It extracts data from EXIF tags and XMP sidecars, making it compatible with the data from programs like Adobe Lightroom, Picassa, and iPhoto. Lifebox is social in that people and objects can be tagged, and they will receive an email when this happens. It supports authentication, so you can control who has access to what photo.
MT2 Thumbnailer (Make Thumbnails 2) is another program for generating HTML photo albums from pictures. It gives users a great deal of control over the comments shown alongside each picture, and the way the pictures are ordered and grouped. Having descriptions, reflections, quips, and quotes in a picture album makes it much more memorable and fun to write.
OIO is a Web-based metadata/data management front-end which is built using Zope and works with Postgresql. No programming is required to build and manage Web-forms or to perform data mining/analysis on the collected data. It is in production at the Harbor/UCLA Medical Center for clinical outcomes management and research data. Forms created with OIO and hosted on any OIO server can be downloaded as XML files. Once downloaded from the "Forms library" and imported into an OIO server, the necessary database tables are automatically recreated and the imported forms become immediately available to the users of that OIO server.
