Hi,
I'm trying to make 1-2000 gallery pages in a few days, I alredy have contents ready.
Which programs do you recommend for this kind of task?
I've alredy tried Gallery Maker Pro but didn't like it, because it built html pages for indiviual image.
Is there any programs that make gallery pages fast and normal TGP sites would accepted.

ThumbPlus is a masterful program at generating galleries. It will handle your task quite well. I dont know any better. It will resize all your images say to 75 % of original too but what i need is below.

Personally, Id like to know a good program that will resize images to a specific size (Kb) instead of by dimension or percentage. If anyone knows what will do that please post up. tia.

Also, what will make the thumbnails all the same dimesnisons no matter what the original dimensions but this is a minor problem. like to have all perfect squares no matter the original is long in vertical or horizontal. blah...

Thanks guys for useful tips.
I personally like Arles much better than GMP except for one thing.
Can anybody tell me how not to put my images on htm pages?
You know, so my galleries could be accepted by 99% of tgp sites.

It's in the settings somewhere. Just look around. Arles is *very* configurable. Just remember to save you settings before you are done.

Regarding Arles, where in the settings can one find the setting to link to the images instead of an html page? I can't seem to find it anywhere....

I have found the way not to put images on html.
On the Index Page tab, click the Advanced button to open the Advanced Index Page Options window.
Click the Thumbnail links tab.
Set Link thumbnail to Images.
Recreate your gallery HTML by clicking the HTML button in the Main window.

Hey, you are the Lisa.
I've heard your name from webgul, I see that you are still working on your site.
Let me know when you finish your site, I'd like to trade link with you,
and please do not call me C.P., that sounds pretty bad.

Lisa, you have one of my galleries on your main page
"Asian Pantyhose Pictures".
I don't know how you found that gallery. :oops:

One of the best thumbnail creation programs I have seen is Batch-it http://www.ablesoft.nu

I use their 1998 version (they have later editions) which resizes to exact size, resizes to size with ratio maintained, compresses, renames and so on. Batch-It (as the name suggests) can be used in batch mode and can handle complete directories up to about 16000 pics.

CP, I must have found it through a search engine - don't know which one but probably google.... webgurl suggested we trade some traffic also because of our niche
