Projects / PicBook


PicBook automatically produces a photo album in HTML format of your scanned images or photographs. It come with automatic image processing, slideshow, transition effects, and other nifty features. It is easy to customise with its configuration file and HTML-templates. PicBook is a Bourne shell script and therefore should run on any Unix or Linux system. It requires the standard grep and awk commands, which should be available on most systems. Additionally, it needs the "convert" and "identify" commands from the ImageMagick package to handle images.
