Publish your Images to the Internet ('Webalbum')
A saved galery can be published in the internet. For this you need a web-server or a web-space, like is offered by many
internet-providers. The web-space needs execution-rights for PHP. No database is required. The neccessary bootstrap-script
is contained in the Calydos.zip and will automatically be uploaded to your web-space at first uploading a galery. Prerequiste is that you specify the FTP-login
for your web-space in the Calydos-Settings, 'Web-Server'-page.
Alternatively, if you do not have a private web-space then you may make use of the Public Calydos Galery Server. Every user has free access to an amount of 5 MB of images. You may order more space, in units of 100 MB, for an anual fee of 20.00 € each.
For the Public Calydos Galery Server to use you need no configuration at all.
|Step:||Activity:||Appropriate Section of Program:|
|1:|| Activate 'Insert-Mode'.
If you already have created Image-Domains then log in to one of these domains. Otherwise click on the coloured button 'Mode: Insert'.
|2:||Identify the image in question in the File-Browser.|
|3:||Doubleclick on that image. This results in a small window popping up displaying a 'Preview-Image', small but large enough to let you see what is in that image. Look at the 'Criteria-Window' at the right side: in the bottom part the Exif-data will be displayed (if present in the image).|
|4:|| In the 'Criteria-Window' you can enter appropriate descriptions
for the image.
All data are optional, except the 'Main Context', where you MUST enter some value, e.g. 'Sports', 'Vacation', 'Family' or whatever you like. Read more about 'Sub-context' and 'Image-Class' here.
All data entered in one of the 'Context'-fields may be terminated by the 'Return'-key. This results in making the value 'permanent', i.e. it is stored and can be retrieved from the drop-down-list pertaining to each of the Context-fields.
|5:|| Finally click on the 'Insert'-button. A record is written into the database.
In case you have made any errors and want to correct the data all you need to do is enter the corrected data and click 'Insert' once again.
|6:|| Process next image:
Click on 'Next Image'. The next image from the directory will be displayed and made ready for being inserted just the way it was with the previous image. Proceed with 4.
Automatic-Mode: As long as the 'automatic'-option is 'on' you need not click the 'Next Image'-button no more, instead the next image will be displayed automatically.
