PHP Photo Gallery – PHP

  php

Q(Question):

After spending many hours trying to find a simple looking,
fast,dynamic php photo-gallery for my digital pictures, I decided to
code a my own.

Once installed, all you have to do is drop a new folder of images on
the server.
Dynamic thumbnails, slideshow are built in.

I tried it on a unix PHP5 server – it crashed with:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: imagecreatefromjpeg() in
/usr/local/home/httpd/vhtdocs/sprouting/fabbPhoto/fabbphoto.php on line 53

http://sprouting.org/fabbPhoto/fabbPhoto_index.php

I tried it on a unix PHP4 server – it didn’t seem to work – it gave a
"JavaScript error: run_ss not defined" when I tried to view the slide show.

FWIW, both have safe mode off. There’s a phpinfo() file nearby
if it might help.

Best wishes,

Tim,
Do you have the GD(1.2+?) libs installed on your php server?
That is expected behavior if you dont have gd installed.
The Slideshow also would not work because the rest of the page does
not get a chance to load(where the "run_ss" function is located).

Most installations I have seen of php4+, have the gd libs installed.

Hmm. What’s wrong with Gallery?

http://gallery.menalto.com/

Works for me. Much more comprehensive
than yours, from what I can see. It was a snap
to install and trivial to create new albums.

Best feature about Gallery is that you can set up
multiple accounts to allow others to post their own
albums, sort of like a photo ‘blog.

Here’s an example implementation:

FYI, in my experience, I’ve noticed that the GD libraries, while included in
the php package and are convenient, they are slow and do not generate
sufficiently high quality thumbnails/resampled images.

php_imlib is the way to go, I’ve found. it’s based on the imlib2 imaging
library – the latest version of php-imlib is located here:
http://pp.siedziba.pl/en/pc_ln.php

The maintainer is very open to feedback – although he is quite busy. I can
probably code up a quick demonstrative sample to show the not-so-subtle
improvement in the image quality, if necessary.
