Photos Are Back

The Photos section of the site is back. It needs a lot of work, but at least it’s there again. I decided to only upload the “important” pictures from the old setup, but I’ll upload new ones as the days go by. It’s a nice and simple interface, which I really like. I’m using SPAM/iPAP to mange the photo albums and it works well. The software needs a lot of improvements, but those will come with time.

Some of the things I would like to see are:

  • Resizing of images on upload.
  • Saving images into folders based on the album, instead of one folder for all of the images.
  • Rotating of images based on EXIF data.
  • Use MySQL or some derivative instead of a flat database file.
  • Better ability for templating. The CSS should be moved out into a seperate file and PHP code should be allowed in the templates.
  • Deleting albums and images doesn’t work quite right yet.
  • Batch uploading. Currently I have to individually choose the images (maximum of eight). I would like to see an option where I could choose a folder and upload everything from it, or upload a zip file that would be unzipped once on the server.

The future looks bright for this piece of software as long as development doesn’t stop. :smile:

  1. You have it running now! :) I’m gonna take your suggestions and hopefully include them when I go back into coding it again, maybe for the next major release. Thanks.
