What I am looking for is a script file that will allow me to show my
photgraphs on my website, without the need for creating a separate html file
The script file must allow me to put a caption on for each photo.
Can anyone suggest a script file or program to do this please.... ?
Not sure if it does what you want, but IrfanView is able to produce html
quickly and easily - it creates thumbnails plus individual pages for
Not sophisticated so changing 'captions' may need direct editing of the
html (not difficult). But, thinking about it, captions may be derived
from any IPTC info you have added to the photo. Might try that myself
later... (IrfanView handles IPTC as well.)
Oh - did I mention that IrfanView is free to use for non-commercial
purposes (I voluntarily paid something like GBP10 as I used it so much).

Depending on what facilities you have with your web host, try looking
at Coppermine - alternatively something like...
If you use ACDSee, that also had an automatic website image gallery
generation facility IIRC, but not sure if it allowed you to add
the_constructor coughed up some electrons that declared:
Gallery2 will manage photos on a PHP enabled server with access to a
database (Postgresql or Mysql or MS Sql amongst others).
On windows or unix.
If that's too heavy, have a look at Freshmeat.net and search for
photo gallery html

Can't comment on the other solutions offered, but I needed something
to cycle through diagrams. You can see the result of what I wrote

Click on 'There is no scale on the dish' and read the 'Template'
insructions. Every click on the diagram brings up the next in a cycle
There are vaguely similar examples on that page and in the Satelite TV
Analysis pages, where clicking on a list item or a button hides and
shows a diagram, a more detailed explanation, a block of maths, etc.
If you want to understand how it works, you need to look at those
sections of HTML in View, Page Source, and the file ...
... but it's all crunched, and of course, if I were to cut and paste
the uncrunched versions here there would be line break problems.
However, if you're interested, I can put the code up somewhere or send
it to you.
