Hi Luke,

Please also have a look at the previous response I sent, in case that
actually helps you more than this one.

As I didn't know the entire problem you were referring to in your email
message, I looked for any other questions of yours in the mailing list
archives that might give me more information and found an earlier one that
seems to be on the same topic. Are you still having trouble creating a
collection with images and then being able to browse it?

- What version of Greenstone are you using? Version 2.x or 3.x?
- What operating system are you on? Linux, Windows or Mac OS?
- Also, could you tell me what the output error messages are concerning
that ImageMagick (mentioned in your mail, below). Is it "ImageMagick is
not installed, the convert utility is not available"?

Could you try building a collection with the images I am attaching and
tell me how they turn up when you try to browse them?
1. Create a new collection using the Greenstone Librarian Interface (GLI)
2. Drag and drop the images 1.jpg, 2.jpg and 3.jpg that I am attaching
into your new collection. (I've added title metadata to them: catbus,
totoro and totoros, respectively.)
3. Build the collection
4. View this new collection in the browser. Browse by "filenames" or
"titles".

I am additionally attaching a screenshot of what the filenames browse
classifier looks like in my browser for this test collection. Could you
send me a screenshot of how this turned out for you?


You had earlier written in the mailing list:
Hi list,

My name is Luke. I am new to greenstone software and i am really making
good of the software. Right now, i have a problem. A problem of creating a
collection using Image, i have tried it severally but when i click on
