On the client Side:
- Windows XP Web Publishing Wizzard
On the server side:
- Apache + MySQL + ImageMagick + PHP + Coppermine Photo Gallery
Let’s assume you have a running Coppermine Gallery on your server under http://www.yourdomainname.com (see coppermine installation instructions). Go to http://www.yourdomainname.com/xp_publish.php. In the middle of the page there’s a link to download a .reg file to install on your Windows XP system. Download it and install it. From now you can publish files from Window Explorer to your gallery in a few clicks. So let’s work on the pictures.
1- Copy your pictures from the camera to a folder on your computer (let’s call it “foo”).
2- Open Picasa, make sure folder “foo” is being watched for changes so that the pictures you just added can be seen from Picasa. You can specify which folders are watched in “Tools>Picture Manager”.
3- in Picasa, browse your pictures, rotate them, get rid of those red eyes… when you find a picture you want to put on your online gallery, just “Hold” it in the Picture Tray.
4- When you’re done browsing/editing your pictures, all the pictures you want to put online should be in the picture tray. Now Press the “Export” button on the right. This will pop up a small window where you can specify the way you want your pictures to be resized. I usually set it to 800*600. When the export is done, Picasa automatically launches Windows Explorer window contaning all the pictures you just exported.
5- In the left pane of the Windows Explorer Window, select “Publish Folder to the Web”. You should be able to select your Coppermine Photo Gallery in the Publishing Wizzard, and Select all the pictures you want to upload. Also the Wizzard lets you pick an existing name for the target album or create a new one in the category of your choice. Since Picasa did a smart resizing of your pictures (taking protrait/landscape into account), you do not need to resize them in the wizzard. When the publishing is done your pictures will be uploaded to your gallery and you can enjoy sharing them.
6- That’s it!!!”
