Writing Your Own Image Gallery Application with the UNIX Shell
To create an image gallery application, you need to obtain the thumbnails, border style of images, audio file for the background music and the text for annotating each image. You also can give the user the opportunity to specify a particular annotation style.
Once you have these inputs, you can use the command-line ImageMagick tools to create a gallery and use a simple shell script to link them all together with HTML and produce a Web page.
