Information about WebGall
Information about WebGall and how it worksWebGall the photo gallery is a selection of photos I shot over the years. Some of them are not too bad but none of them is good enough for the Guggenheim museum... So I thought the internet may be a good place to show them: the web cannot defend itself.
A bit of history, just in case you can’t stop reading this page, or cannot sleep:
The background story: After a crash of the old web editing software (having “optimized” it by simply clicking that button which was named "Optimize") most of the images were modified (index pictures resized up to 800x800, but most of the main picture as little as 100x100 or completely gone). More than that the whole lot more or less unaccessable for editing, leaving the complete site in a big mess. I found that the software I used so far was not really designed for photo gallery purposes although it offered an according function. So after a while I decided to throw it away and to start all over from scratch, so I had to look for an appropriate new software..
After searching the internet and checking here and there I found some useful (free) programs which I downloaded, installed and tested against my demands. I was lucky on fourth strike when I got into JAlbum, where I chose the Chameleon skin. is sincegenerated by this “couple” of software. Meanwhile they charge you money if you want to get rid of the commercials they supply the galleries with (you won't see any on WebGall), but basically it still is freeware and free of charge.
After having done some testing to get a feeling of how JAlbum works I am pretty sure now that the software and the structure of my web site is adequate to the purpose of the gallery, and thus will last and work fine for at least the next two hundred years. The gallery still is a working site and images / albums / texts are added on an unregular basis. Drop me a line if anything irritates you.
