in reply to SHTML generator for image viewing

Output looks great! I've done some similar work to this, available here. Hope you like baby pictures! This was one of my first perl/mySQL projects, and as a consquence the code is a mess! It has the ability to use multiple templates, picture comments, and a few other features.

In you code, what about using image magick to create thumbnails, then having the thumbnails link to a template containing the full size picture?

    Hey that is awesome! You have an uber-image viewer thing...

    Never thought of using a template like that. I kind of thought that I could change everything using shtml but now you have me thinking. I had thought about providing thumbnails using Image::Magick but I needed to get the code finished and didn't have time to look at the module - but its something I definately want to add asap.

    Now that I see yours though...hahaha that is a fine menu and I like the "next" and "back" buttons.


      Well, your system has advantages because of it's use of SSI, it's probably quite a bit faster than my "each page created on the fly" system. I'll make sure to watch what you come up with.

      My image viewer is an abandonded business idea I had. I might revisit it just for my own fun. Randall Schwartz made a really neat image viewer here.
