    Question looking for a image approval script

    the short story: i want to upload a set of photos (ideally have GD resize them) and have them posted to a gallery where a client could login and mark them Yes or No. a list of approved/denied images is emailed to me (AND ideally the images are moved/copied to a specific folder)


    the longer story (in case you want/need the details): i take pictures for a client, then i ready them for a website and upload them, and then they go through them online, and email me a list of the images that they like. since most clients are different they send me different lists... some of them send me image names, some send me descriptions of what's happening in the picture, and others just tell me column and row... it's not easy to keep track of, or refer back to.

    let me know if you need more information.

    thanks,
    alec /\/\/

    it was meant as a question...
    i haven't been able to find a script that does this, or even comes close enough to modify... most everything that i have found has too many bells and whistles, and/or doesn't output the data in a meaningful way.

    i guess i am am asking if anyone knows of a script that will solve, or partially solve my problem.

    thanks,
    alec /\/\/

    Sounds pretty simple. Is there a URL where I could have a look at the page? How are you currently associating the images with each client?

    If not too many pictures at once, how about putting a lil' checkbox next to each picture and an input button at the bottom of the page? You could then mail() yourself the list of selected images.

    If we're talking loads of images at once, you may want to implement a simple shopping cart as an alternative.

    Yes, he could fix his dilemna by using your gallery but adding a means of selecting the images wanted by his customers. If the customers click on a thumbnail, it could be displayed full size (or whatever size) in a target='_blank' window so as not to lose focus.

    The admin page is like that. There is a form with a checkbox next to it and in this case if the box is checked the image will be removed from the gallery.

    Rather than emailing I would propose a system where the client chooses the images using a checkbox and from that moment on they are displayed. The email could still be sent but more in an advisory capacity than anything else.

    I think he needs to act on the selected images - print or something. But you're right it wouldn't have to be mailed, it could be stored locally on the server. I'm not really sure what happens once the customers has picked a set of images...

    About 1.5 years, I did this. Before I post the code, I'll have to double-check it to make sure there's nothing in there to totally discredit me. It's failry standard except when you resize the browser window. see: http://www.nightshift58.com/webdev/gallery/index.php

    NB: If you're wondering about the display sizes of the originals it because the script is meant to run on the 60-in. TV with a few more pixels..
