Photo Album Creation
Hints, Tips and Tricks
- The Album Wizard looks at the left-hand file system for JPG images and creates a photo album based on those images. Point the left-hand file system to the folder containing the images you wish to put in the album, then enter the Wizard.
- The Wizard Automatically Creates A Master Photo Album menu page in the parent directory. In this case, C:\PhotoAlbums. This ties all of the photo albums you create together in the photo albums folder.
- Viewing Your Albums With PhotoELF: The Album Wizard creates HTML files, (Hyper Text Mark-up Language), which any web browser will view. You may use PhotoELF to view your album by clicking the MasterAlbum.html file and then clicking the View Document button that appears in the main window.
- View Your Albums With Your Browser: use My Computer to navigate to your photo album folder and double click any HTML file. Your browser will automatically be launched.
- Making Changes - Make changes to any album, any time. Simply point PhotoELF's left-hand file system to that album's folder and run the Album Wizard. This will re-create the album.
- Add And Remove Photos - Delete or add photos in the album folder using PhotoELF. After deleting or adding the desired photos, run through the Album Wizard. PhotoELF will automatically update that photo album.
- Remove A Photo Album - Delete a photo album folder and all of its contents. The next time you use the Wizard, the Master Album page will be updated and the links to any deleted albums will be removed.
- PhotoELF Creates Two Sub Folders: - Thumbs and Pages. You will not need to add or remove items in these folders. They will be updated automatically every time you run the Wizard.
- The Album.ELF File - Do not delete this file. This file contains the setup information for the current photo album. It is required for making minor changes without re-creating the entire photo album.
- Manually Editing The HTML Code: While viewing your album in PhotoELF's internal browser, right click the browser page and select View Source. This will launch NotePad.exe with that web page's source code. You may edit the code and then save the file. Hit the refresh button to witness your changes.
