Photo library

P: n/a
i am not sure that this subject can be discussed here.

i have many photos. they are stored according to the name of the EVENT and
YEAR.

i will set up a database (sql or access) to store information of the photo
and set up a folder to store the "PHOTOs".
and design a web page to show.

My question is how to put the photo on the web page.

i prefer the simplest and effortless method.

Once the user takes the photos (5m pixel photo) and upload them and input
the event name & year. then it is finished.

any tools can be used? which programming language is most suitable. i
noted many web sites have this feature but i don't know how many effort at
the back end?

Thanks a lot for any hints.

Here is a pure ASP (i.e. no components) resource for letting the user
upload a file such as a photo which is something that was unfortunately
not built into ASP:

ASP File Upload Using VBScript by John R. Lewis - 7/10/2000
http://aspzone.com/articles/160.aspx

For a photo album I like to actually have the regular photo be 4x4, 4x6,
or 6x4 and then also have a thumbnail of each photo at 25% or 30%. But
of course you could have your own rules and standards.

And showing a photo with it's filename from a field in a database really
takes nothing more than code like this (assuming the recordset objRS has
already been generated):

<img src="http://www.mysite.com/photos/"<%=
objRS("PhotoFilenameNormalSize") %>" border="0">
