Publishing photographs online, usually involves changing each photograph's
size and quality. If you have more than a few photos, this become tedious
so I wrote the JPEGDirCopy Java application to automate the process.
It has both a command-line and a GUI interface.
To enable anyone to setup an easily maintained on-line photo album, I wrote
the GetPictures Java applet to pull down photographs
from an ordinary web server.
The applet can be run as a slide show, using the space bar to step through
full-size photographs, or it can be used to select individual photographs
from an index page by clicking with a mouse pointer.
The latest Java plug-in and JRE for your browser can be downloaded from sun and then installed according to
the downloaded instructions. The web has millions of amazing Java applets
so it is generally worth considering this download, but especially if your
browser initially came without Java, or your Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
has been superseded, or become noticeably buggy.
