AuctionGallery is a terminal script that creates picture galleries for the purpose of putting them into auctions like eBay, Yahoo Auctions, etc. It can also be used automatically generate HTML templates for auction description.
It is aimed at powersellers who have hundreds of products listed every day and need an efficient way of generating galleries and organizing pictures in a coherent directory structure.
I created AuctionGallery because I needed simple software to quickly create picture galleries for the purpose of putting them into auctions. There are many other similar programs available but none did the job.
Here are some key features of "AuctionGallery":
Just extract the tar file into your home directory. Add the path to gallery executable to PATH.
Edit gallery.conf and create templates. 3 sample templates are included.
Navigate to the directory where pictures are located. Type "gallery" in terminal. You can also specify a template to speed things up, like so: "gallery foobar". Hopefully gallery executable will be in your path. It will list available templates and their descriptions.
Type the name of template to use. Type the name of the folder that will contain the pictures. Give meaningfull names so that later the pictures will be easy to find. For example if the item being sold is a Rolex Date Just Watch, give this name: RolexDateJustWatch. Try not to put numbers at the end as it will look confusing.
If everything is OK, pictures will be copied to the images_root directory, renamed, resized, thumbnailed, uploaded to an FTP site and gallery.html will be created in the current directory. All pictures in current directory will be moved to a directory "backup".
Please keep in mind that this program is written in Bash script so it is error prone. I did extensive error checking but it's impossible to check everything and if something goes wrong the program may spit out something bogus.
What's New in This Release:
tags was added picture galleries pictures will the name current directory the pictures error checking config file was improved option was type the and create putting them
