Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Since we can do HTML without much fuss, we are well on our way to creating a pretty cool web presentation for our pictures. However, setting up that little web slide show can be a tad time consuming even if you know how to do all these things. This is where today's hero comes into play.

iGal is a simple Perl script written by Eric Pop, and it certainly qualifies as a program I cannot do without. If you need to create a presentation of images in a hurry for your web site, for your family or for your company, then you should check out iGal at http://www.stanford.edu/~epop/igal/. iGal also makes use of the ImageMagick tools we talked about to do its work.

Installing this is child's play since iGal (which stands for Image GALlery generator), being a Perl script, is already source. Still, you can download an RPM or Debian package from their site, which will put the script and its documentation in all the right places."
