Photo Program
Question~ Regarding Making of a imagin site

 9:22 pm on Mar 18, 2005 (gmt 0)

HI Everyone,

Just wondering, I am currently planning on constructing a site where it stores many document files and will be accessable from my website. I want to make it so the imagin is zoomable and easily managed, quick loading time, does anyone know what would be good for that?

Hello wantfieldh,

do you mean a sort of photo album? There are plenty of free and ready programs around, try to look as sourceforge.org -- try to download, install and then play with it a little ;)

Best regards :)

with DHTML or Javascript you won't get great results with out a lot of manual labor. I suggest a FLASH solution that could be managed by connecting it to ColdFusion. The two integrate pretty well. I'm sure there are some turn key programs out there.

In my experience, Flash has not been particularly good at rendering raster images, particularly those which have been enlarged. But, if programming in a data-driven development environment such as .NET or Cold Fusion is beyond your capabilities, Flash might be the direction to take.

CSS2, that is, second-generation cascading stylesheets, now has zooming capabilities, thanks to the experimentation of some pretty innovative mavericks who wouldn't take 'No' for an answer when informed it couldn't be done by the folks who set the standards.

However, like javascript, handcoding the image placement for a large number of images could be quite labor-intensive, unless, of course, the entire exercise of displaying your pictures, for you, is a labor of love to begin with.
