What is it?

Album - [1] An HTML photo album generator that supports themes. It takes directories of images and creates all the thumbnails and HTML that you need.

Album is a perl script, which means you need to be comfortable with or prepared to use the command-line. If you just want a point-and-click, you may wish to look elsewhere. Features:

  • You can use themes to choose or redesign the album "look and feel."
  • Recursively descends directories to make a hierarchy of photo albums
  • EXIF support, Video thumbnails...
  • Has a plugin system that allows you to write perl code to alter the behavior of album.
  • Slideshows, transparent overlays, credit tags, easy captions, and endless features!

Look here for documentation: http://marginalhacks.com/Hacks/album/Docs/ [2]

There are a few photo gallery alternatives:

  1. Apache or Lighttpd or Thttpd look at the following articles for pointers:
    1. LLMP or LAMP
    2. Run a second instance of thttpd (on an alternate port)
  2. Perl and the script for MarginalHacks:Album[3]
  3. Imagemagick tools (specifically 'convert')

Optional Installation

MIPsel

You'll have to compile everything from source for the MIPSel Linkstation. This would probably work fine on any LinkStation, OpenLink or FreeLink but it takes FOREVER to compile imagemagik

Download ImageMagick.tar.gz from ftp.imagemagick.org or its mirrors and unpack it with this command:

wget ftp://ftp.imagemagick.org/pub/ImageMagick/ImageMagick.tar.gz 
tar -xvzf ImageMagick.tar.gz

Next configure and compile ImageMagick:

 cd ImageMagick-6.?.?
 ./configure
 make

If ImageMagick configured and compiled without complaint, you are ready to install it on your system. You need to be root to install. To install, type:

 make install
  • Install jhead
wget http://www.sentex.net/~mwandel/jhead/jhead-latest.tar.gz
tar -xvzf jhead-latest.tar.gz
cd jhead-?.?
make
chmod +x jhead 
cp jhead /usr/local/bin
  • Download and run Album:
wget http://marginalhacks.com/bin/album.tar.gz
tar -xvzf album.tar.gz
cd album-3.12
mkdir -p /usr/local/bin
cp album /usr/local/bin/
chmod 0755 /usr/local/bin/album

PowerPC

ipkg install imagemagick
ipkg install ffmpeg
  • Install jhead
wget http://www.sentex.net/~mwandel/jhead/jhead-latest.tar.gz
tar -xvzf jhead-latest.tar.gz
cd jhead-?.?
make
chmod +x jhead 
cp jhead /usr/local/bin
  • Download and run Album:
wget http://marginalhacks.com/bin/album.tar.gz
tar -xvzf album.tar.gz
cd album-3.12
mkdir -p /usr/local/bin
cp album /usr/local/bin/
chmod 0755 /usr/local/bin/album
