New Journal Gallery

wendy and me

I’m testing out a new feature here on my journal site: all of the photographs I will be posting from now on will live in Exhibition Engine, a fantastic online gallery system. I’ve figured out how to use the built-in snippet feature to shoe-horn images into my pages, although I did have to modify the script for the grid of thumbnails to include captions below them. I hope to use this feature soon.

Until then, check out the images here in this entry and let me know what you think. In the long run I will be able to do keyword searches on specific people, locations, subjects, etc. I’m very excited about that prospect. :) Note: if you want to see inlined captions, change the listing type to info cards. [see some photos]

The photos in the list include:

- Jim/Anna Abernethy, Todd Essick, Douglas Seifert and I dining at the Reef Grill in Juno Beach
- a meeting in the Bay Area with Dan Heller and Sammy, who is one of the cutest dogs I’ve ever met
- Wendy and Rachel’s return from a 5 week trip to India

    Umm… nice shot of the cat’s ass dude :P

    hahaha

    It’ll take some time for me to get used to your new gallery. I was quite fond of your old one :) Time will tell!

    I don’t do so well with change :)

    Interesting. So…automated EXIF extraction, right? Don’t know if it’s possible, but you might want to shove the EXIF data below your comment/caption line.

    It’ll be interesting to see how categorization works out, once you get it populated.

    Went through the developer’s page…seems like it just displays the images you put up? It’s not dynamic resizing, right? I don’t think that’s a bad thing…esp. since it seems faster than most gallery scripts out there.

    Chester – automated EXIF extraction, captioning from EXIF or IPTC, resizing to any three resolutions — large/full size, thumbnail, and microthumb, support for GD and ImageMagick (ImageMagick can overlay a copyright and automatically sharpen, etc.). Very, very cool.

    No dynamic resizing. It resized upon import, if want it to.

    Eventually, I may give up control and have it do the downsizing for me, but for now, I’ll do it myself. :)

    I’m still looking for a gallery doodad myself, but I can’t find one that seems to be modular enough for my tastes. I like the idea of just throwing a whole bunch of crap in a directory and having the script automagically figure it all out, but having enough modularity for me to more or less make calls to it telling it what I want to display rather than having some annoying ass layout/skin dictated to me.

    Perhaps i’ll code it myself if I can’t find something soon.

    Feature-wise though (outside of the modularity which I haven’t played with yet), this is spot-on as to what i’m looking for :)

    yeah, i saw a demo video of the product not too long ago. those guys were doing their testing at the BBFS: http://wetpixel.com/features/pit/

    pretty neat stuff!

  • Chester

    Wow. Very cool and consistent in the trend of how I feel like a lazy bastard every time I visit this site.
