Galerie generates galleries on Web pages with pictures and QuickTime media files (VR panoramas, video, sounds).

For each picture or media file a separate page will be created with navigation to next and previous pages. One or more index pages will show thumbnail images of all pictures, each linked to the corresponding page in the gallery. Galerie will work with a selection in iPhoto, or with a selection in a browser window of GraphicConverter, or with a selection in a iView MediaPro catalog, or with files or folders dragged from the Finder.

When I add to an album the program regenerates ALL of the pages (new and old). Is there a way to have it just add the new pages, as I have comments that I don't want deleted on the old pages, but the program wipes all of them out and I have to start over.

To the developer or MacUpdate:

Clicking on the info image to the right of the description opens a window with a smaller view of the image. how about presenting a larger view?

Thanks

Was a very good and easy to use webgallery maker, but is not updated for years; I thought it was abandonned. People should take a look at jAlbum, which is incredibly more powerfull, though is a bit more difficult to use at the first time.

I've used this on sites in the past and it's really excellent. I now do the same thing serverside with PHP but for static implementations this is pretty hard to beat.

I love it kryptiniacably, Ed

I downloaded and tried this app on a tip from an OWC newsletter. Overall, it's a great app! I like how much nicer it builds pages than iPhoto does on it's own.

That said - what it doesn't tell you up front is that, IF you use Galerie's comment feature (which allows you to let viewers comment on your photo galeries which are hosted on THEIR servers) - it also AUTOMATICALLY assumes you want to share your uploaded/hosted galerie with the world, and publishes a thumbnail and a link to your galerie on their "Gallery of Galeries" website.

Needless to say, this was a concern to me as I may not wish to share personal family photos with the world by default, nor do I need that kind of hit to my limited bandwidth.

THE ONLY way to keep them private is to go to your Galerie Administration page (which they send you a link to after you signup so you can use their feedback/comment system in with your galeries) and manually select each galerie you want to keep private. You then get a message saying their server will be updated with that preference within 15 minutes.

I went to the software maker's support sight and asked them about this, and why they wouldn't automatically, by default, assume people wanted to maintain their privacy and instead have them choose to share their galeries instead of basically forcing them to opt-out.

Unfortunately, my concerns were summarily dismissed as "trivial."

Even though this is free software - don't take your privacy for granted.

Thank you Itbedave, for pointing this out. I read the forum thread you linked to, and was appalled at how you were treated. I think your concerns are quite valid, and being told off in such a rude way is unforgivable. Regardless of the issue, such callousness is reason enough for me not even to try their software.

ITBEDAVE got the authors' gander up by clearly insinuating that they were somehow making money from selling access to people's private galleries. That is no way to request a feature on quality freeware. No reason there to boycott anyone.

the last commenter is likely linked to Galerie - as he CLEARLY didn't read my post her not my posts on the Galerie forums - or just isn't interested in the truth.

The point behind the post had NOTHING to do with someone making money - but EVERYTHING to do with a software developer posting galleries of photos that MOST people would assume were being created for private use as part of their PUBLIC collection without CLEARLY disclosing ahead of time that they were doing it.

It has EVERYTHING to do with being up front, honest and transparent in their intentions and NOTHING to do with profit. I even said I would gladly pay for this software - it is good - with the exception that the authors are rude, inconsiderate, and not interested in feedback from their customers or their customer's privacy.

Downloaded the dmg, mounted, duplicated it to the desktop, unmounted image. Opened folder, launched the app. Elected not to use the simple interface.

Changed some settings (lots of options), tried to select a template - program then asked *me* where its folder of templates was. Its in its folder with the application, presumably right where the developer put it. Selected 1 of the 18 galleries (Anthracite shadow) and clicked "Generate Gallery".

As it processed photos it showed an apparently demo photo of a child which was not present in the output. Weird.

Index.html page opened in Safari. Clicking thumbnail links did nothing but spin Safari's gear for a second - no new page, no error. Manually opened the thumbs.html page, links work on that one.

Gallery format looks nice but the image quality was horrid despite the fact that none of the images needed to be resized (I already did that before testing gallery generation programs.) Went back and removed the setting to "Use Picture Frame" and regenerated - that was it - the picture quality appeared equal to the source images.

Drug program to the trash making a mental note to look for newer versions in the future, wrote this review.

Overall, lots of options, poorly implemented interface (even in the simplified mode - difficult to guess where any specific settings will be - in preferences? under menus? in the main window?), nice looking galleries but flawed html output.

Looking forward to a version that can output pages which work in Safari.

Thank you so much for making this.
AND thank you for offering it for free.

This software is something that Apple should have included in iPhoto but did not.

I am always amazed at the quality of the free & open source software that developers offer.

Thank you again for offering this application free of cost and for the many hours involved in developing it.

The only thing I think JAlbum has over Galerie are it's templates, besides that Galerie has a superior interface, great intergration with iPhoto and seems to me to be easier to use.

Does all that it says, and more!

So far, I have no problems at all with this free application. In my opinion, this is one of the best freeware apps, ever. Anyone-from my grandma to a power user-can dig into this app and find more and more useful features. I love being able to customize just about every aspect of every page and piece of text; I can even design my own templates or modify others!

What more can you ask of a free app?

You do not need to know any html to use Galerie fully, but if you do have some experience with Web editing, you can go a step further by editing or creating templates yourself.
