WebMagick provides a means of easily putting image collections on the Web.
It recurses through directory trees, building HTML pages and imagemap
(GIF or JPEG) files to allow the user to navigate through collections of
thumbnail images (somewhat similar to 'xv') and select the images to
view with a mouse click.
WebMagick is highly configurable. Its goal is to provide lots of options
while doing a nice job out of the box. Configuration may be done from
the command line, or via .webmagickrc files which effect the overall
installation, or images in a directory tree.
WebMagick is optimized to use the features of modern Web browsers,
however support is provided for older browsers as well.
Read the INSTALL file to get started with installation of webmagick. Read
the manual page or any form of documentation in the doc directory
for the details on how to use webmagick. A key installation requirement
is that you must first install the ImageMagick image manipulation toolset.
If you are operating a site that my mother wouldn't approve of, please
set the $opt_anonymous option to 1 or use the --anonymous option. This
removes WebMagick copyright info from all generated pages. In particular,
it removes my email address so I don't get email from confused users
regarding stuff I would rather not hear about. :-)
WebMagick is written by Bob Friesenhahn (firstname.lastname@example.org). I
would be happy to hear about your trials and tribulations with webmagick.
The current maintainer of WebMagick is Chris Lindell (email@example.com)
and the new WebMagick homepage is http://webmagick.sourceforge.net. Anyone
wishing to help with WebMagick development should also visit the project
