Agreed. If he does have the time it would be great if he could post it on
the list directly. My organization is ramping up to do a digital photo
library.

Stefan, Gordon:
Yes -- agree Gordon's photo collection is ultra-cool -- and it's also
exactly what I want to do.
I can't find any reference to it in the archives, though.

Gordon, could you please help?

What should the appropriate lines in the config files look like, and what
should be the structure of the data files -- there are three image files
(thumbnail, screensized and full) to be accommodated?

I'm using Greenstone 2.36 on a Windows 98 machine.

Thanks and best wishes

Paul

Hi Paul,

I guess what you want is something similar to Gordon Paynters very cool
"photograph album" collection
(http://tuatara.ucr.edu/gsdl-bin/library?a=p&p=about&c=pictures).

I think Gordon has explained some of how he did it on the list at various
times, maybe you could have a search of the archives for some of his posts
(mailing list archives can be found at
http://www.nzdl.org/cgi-bin/library?a=p&p=about&c=gsarch). Failing that,
maybe if Gordon has time he could make his config files available to you to
have a look at.

regards,
Stefan.
