Chris...... what a truly GREAT program it is!
I LOVE it! I, too, have been for something like that..... even have
FlipBooks but this is MUCH better for my needs. THANKS, THANKS, THANKS!
And thanks for those that looked at my 'staring' eyes..... :-)
See, this is a great example of the terrific help one finds on this list.
>>>I've just stumbled across a program that might be useful to some of
the folks on this list. It is, to begin with, an image database which
lets you process entire folders of your images into the database, and
lets you add several fields of titling and descriptive text
information on which you can later sort. It's web-friendly in that it
records the stored paths of all your images as they're imported.
I was pleased to find this, since I've been looking for something
along these lines for years. What knocked me out, however, was that I
noticed an HTML Generation tab. Tried it out, and have been
generating pages of captioned thumbnails all evening, each one linked
to a larger image which can be viewed with a click on the thumbnail.
For a portrait gallery, you can add the name of the subject to
display with the thumbnail, and then an extended biography or notes
which will display under the larger version of the image.
The program is called ARCHIMAGE, it's free, and the current version
is 1.5e. It's a 6.7-meg download at http://www.bornet.es/archimage/
The author is Spanish, but provides English translation for both the
site and the program.
One obvious shortcoming: for licensing reasons, the program won't
import GIF files or TIFs which are LZW-compressed. So this might be
better suited for portraits and genealogy-related images (where an
uncompressed TIF is the preferred file storage format anyway) than
for cataloguing stuff like web bullets, lines and arrows.
