    Question Wanted: A decent image organiser/something that can make a webpage from image folders

    Hi,
    I teach reception (that's little people, not another word for the office) and to please some bod in government I have to collect evidence to prove that these little 4 year olds can meet 100-odd criteria grouped within 10 or so categories. Much of this is photographic (plus some video, hopefully) so here, surely, the trusted computer can help!

    I have found PhotoMesa that is almost perfect! It:
    • Allows the addition of comments to each photo.
    • Allows the addition of tags/categories to each photo that can be organised within sub categories.
    • Easy searching based on folder name & category.

    It stores the comments etc.. in IPTC tags within the image.

    However, it doesn't allow you to export these into a slideshow, or printout or webpage or anything! (for sharing with parents at parent's evening) So I need something that can make a website from a folder of images but include some of the IPTC tags.

    This could be a free/cheap product I use in addition to PhotoMesa or something that would do both jobs.
    If it's the latter, ideally it would also:
    • Allow photos to be moved between folders (seems obvious but photomesa can't)
    • Handle video and possibly audio files


    Thanks for reading. Here is a picture of photomesa that sort of shows how I would like to use it.

    The Microsoft Powertools for Windows XP ccan help you create slideshows (Photostory} and web-based slideshows. I'm not sure just how much info can be included mind.

    These two programs are worth a look at before too much trawling commences.

    I think Google Picasa and Irfanview have these features or something similar.

    Would go with the options above.

    In a past life I used jalbum successfully. Dunno if it does exactly what you want.

    Some interesting stuff here too

    If you have Vista Home Premium or Ultimate you could do this

    When you say "folder", do you mean the folders that PhotoMesa organises photos into, or proper folders in the system's filesystem? If proper folders, then both Perl and PHP would seem to have libraries available for reading IPTC tags, all that would be needed would be a script along the lines of:

    write header
    for each image (and maybe subfolder) in folder X
    create handle to image
    read IPTC tags from image
    write HTML img tag out that points to image
    write HTML paragraph tag out that lists wanted IPTC tags under image
    next image
    write footer

    There is a program i use regularly called Web Album Generator. It sounds like it might do the trick
