First look at this clear and nice integration of phpAlbum on Badener Zeitung site.

Resizing photos with ImageMagick

Do you have the same problem as i had? As i had before i knew ImageMagick. Always if i wanted to upload photos i had to reisze them each, one by one. I made it in Gimp, may be you are using photo editor like Photoshop or something else. This was very slow and boring.

That's why, i would like to introduce you ImageMagick.
This is very useful package of programms. You can use it for creating, converting manipulating of pictures.

phpAlbum v0.2.4 released !!

Today i released new version of phpAlbum.
Many bugs has been fixed. Here is short description of new features:

  • new installation should be even easier as befor. More error messages are implemented to help the user by the installation.
  • all visible texts are now customisable, even invisible setup link is possible
  • character set encoding is now changable, default is UTF-8
  • few chache options are now implemented, now you can switch if you want cache thumbnails and resized photos. Until now there were only thumbnails cached. As i realised that many people upload full size photos, and resizing of them is quite slow. I thought for those people is this interesting feature.

PHP Photo Album -

Why did i started to programm this PHP Photo Album.

First, i was always searching for some easy to use and install PHP Album. As i am programmer i have never found something what i really liked.

I needed something where i only have to upload my new photos and that's it. No thumbnails regenerating, no static page Photo album generator, just create new directory and upload my photos with FTP or SFTP.

I needed some script which does not need any database, it should use file system, PHP and nothing else.

I also needed something where i can easily setup passwords for som directories or just with one click disable some others visibility and so on...

Installing of phpAlbum

Installation of phpAlbum is now even easier as before.

Just go to the INSTALL section and install it out of this site on your ftp-server. It is very easy and all you have to do after this is upload your photos with FTP. All directories are created autmatically and there will be alsou photo_xyxyx subdirectory where you can upload your images.

First you have to download actual version of phpAlbum. It is recomended to have always the newest update, as this is an early stage of developing this tool.
Untar downloaded file and upload it to your webspace. Best way is to have an extra directory for this i.e. phpAlbum.
