ThumbHTML Forum
Thursday 27th November 2014
ThumbHTML enables the rapid deployment of digital images to the web. You choose the folder containing the images you wish to show, and use the program to generate thumbnail copies (and other sizes). Simply click the 'create thumbnails' button. You then choose the number of images to be displayed per page and a page title, and click 'Make HTML'. That's it - all you then have to do is to upload the entire folder (including the thumbnails sub-folder) to the web.

There are a number of additional configuration options, including user-selected colours and drop-shadows.

You can create pre-defined sets of re-sized copies of your images with one click using the 'batch resize' facility.

For full details of the features the program provides, click [here].

If you would like to see an example of the type of output this provides, have a look at some of these examples:

  • Images from our regular PopMaths quiz, 2006
  • Some photos I took on England's wild and windy Yorkshire coast a few years ago
  • A family vacation in Scotland
  • The Three Peaks of GB
  • Our vacation in 2005 to Waterton/Glacier
  • LATEST VERSION: 2.9 (build #355, December 24, 2006). For a complete history, see here.

    Recent changes (new=red bullet):
    • Improved the IPTC-reading capability considerably. The program now reads all common IPTC tags, and placeholders for them are now available in linkedimage.tmp. See the comments at the top of linkedimage.tmp for more details.
    • Added ability to decode additional Canon data from the MakerNote section of the EXIF headers, using new placeholders in linkedimage.tmp
    • Fixed extraction of ISO setting from Canon EXIF headers
    • Added the automatic inclusion of links to other image sizes, for the PHP script (this feature was already included with the html output templates)
    • Added the automatic inclusion of links to other image sizes, for the PHP script (this feature was already included with the html output templates)
    • Added ability to choose the filename for the thumbnail index pages.
    • Can now interrupt the creation of thumbnails.
    • Added PHP form of output.
    • Image previews are now shown when not selected, provided an EXIF-embedded thumbnail exists.
    • Added placeholders to the linkedimage.tmp templates to allow data from EXIF tags embedded within jpg images to be added on an individual basis
