Work the Shell - Displaying Image Directories in Apache, Part III
where I'll set size to the desired thumbnail size—75 in our example script.
I'm also going to add a few counters so we can summarize images displayed versus total files displayed at the end. Just because it's, uh, interesting, right?
Here's the latest version of the loop, and as you might expect, it's getting more complicated as it becomes more sophisticated:
for name in * do if [ ! -z "$(file -b $name|grep 'image data')" ] then imgcount=$(( $imgcount + 1 )) figuresize $name if [ ! -z "$height" ] ; then if [ $height -gt $width ] ; then dimensionlabel="height" else dimensionlabel="width" fi echo "<a href=$name><img src=$name border=0" echo "alt=$name $dimensionlabel=$size" echo "align="absmiddle" />" echo "$name ($height x $width)</a>" else echo "<a href=$name><img src=$name border=0" echo "alt=$name height=$size" echo "align="absmiddle" />" echo "$name</a>" fi else echo "<a href=$name>$name</a><br />" fi echo "<hr />" totcount=$(( $totcount + 1 )) done echo "<i>Displayed $imgcount images out of $totcount entries total.</i>"
The resultant output, which is hopefully more attractive, is shown in Figure 2.
Now that we can normalize these thumbnails in the script (at least for non-JPEG images, due to a limitation in the file command), the next thing to examine is how to display the results with multiple images across, in a grid or table, rather than one per line as we see now. That's a bit more complicated, because it involves yet another counter, but while you're waiting for your next issue of Linux Journal, you might bone up on the basic HTML table tags, because that's what we'll be using. Then, finally, we'll switch to ImageMagick from file, so we can get the dimensions of all image files, not only GIF and PNG files.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
