About

P2H is a program that lets you publish your images as quickly to the Internet as possible. It takes care of scaling, rotating and uploading images, the most basic and always recurring tasks. There is no longer any need to start a graphics program, html-editor and ftp application separately and this can save you a lot of time. The program already functions reasonably well. But it is still at an early programing stage and additional features will be added in the near future.

If you like the idea of such a program and you find this particular program usefull, please consider getting involved. The simplest way of course is to mail me any suggestions you have or bugs you may have encountered.

Download

These are early versions of photo2html. Please be patient:-) New releases will follow shortly. The releases should run on Windows, Linux, Mac etc.. If you should run into any problems, please let me know.

Features

Features of version 0.1.9 Features of upcoming version 0.2 Further features that will be added in later versions

How-To

Check out the brand new tutorial to get started as quickly as possible!

Photo2Html is very easy to use. Because the current versions are only preview releases, you are advised to follow the instructions below, so that you will not run into any difficulties. Later versions will include a "project wizard" and will be programmed more robustly.

  1. If you do not have java, install the latest release of Sun Microsystems Java Runtime Environment (1.4 or above). You may find the the appropriate software here.
  2. Download the latest p2h release here.
  3. Run p2h
    • Unzip the release file.
    • MAKE SURE TO READ THE README FILE
    • Double click on the p2h.jar file
    • Using Linux or UNIX you can run the file by typing: java -jar p2h-xxx.jar in a shell
  4. Create a new directory with your file browser and copy all the images you would like to publish to the net in this directory. You should always work with copies of your images
  5. Create a new Project pressing the button in the toolbar.
  6. Create an image series node by pressing the right button in the toolbar.
  7. Open the directory created above via the menu.
  8. Copy all images in the order you would like them to appear to the "Selected Images" window on your right.
  9. Double click on the selected images to enter a description that will appear beneath the image on the website.
  10. When you are done, save your project. You should keep the directory created above along with the images inside as an offline version of your webpage. This way your saved project file can always reload all of the relevant images and you can make any changes necessary.
  11. Press the "Create HTML" Button. This button will create all of the webpages and save them in the working directory. Attention! Currently the program will overwrite any previously saved html files with the same name.
  12. Upload all of the files/directories photo2html tells you to. And voil´┐Ż
