This is a gallery plug-in for all rockbox players with color LCDs. It displays a set of x*y pictures, through which the user browses.
Photogallery plug-in uses bitmap files, for both thumbnails and full screen views. Thus, you'll need to first generate a gallery, i.e. resize all your pictures to your DAP screen size, and then generate thumbnails for all those pictures, which will be placed in a '.thumbnails' directory, which itself should be created for each folder containing images that you intend to view in the gallery. Creating a list of pictures to display in the gallery is also necessary, although photogallery can do this for you (still buggy in some cases though).
I have coded a soft to do all this automatically. Therefore, the user’s part of the job is just to specify where to take the pictures from, and where to save them. The soft will also generate the list of all pictures to display in the gallery, labeled pictures_list.pic (more details on my website), as well as the config file.
Then, when the plug-in loads, it will read from photogallery.config file where to get thumbnails and will then load thumbnails listed in pictures_list.pic, and finally display the gallery.
I've attached the diff file for this plug-in, and screenshots as well as additional information are avaliable on my website (http://cfpcreators.free.fr/?ref=software&id=photogallery). Although the process of generating a gallery sounds quite complicated, it is rather simple. Everything is automated if you use this program: http://cfpcreators.free.fr/?ref=software&id=rbtools, although it only works for windows users.
Feel free to comment on this plug-in.
