Generating Thumbnail Images of a Photo Gallery

P: n/a
The following is a program to generate thumbnail images for a website.
Useful, if you want to do that.

It is used to generate the thumbnails for my “Banners, Damsels, and
Mores” project gallery. (

Comments and versions in other lang welcome.

# Given a webite gallery of photos with hundreds of photos, i want to
generate a thumbnail page so that viewers can get a bird's eye's view
images.

# Technically:
# Given a dir: e.g. /Users/xah/web/Periodic_dosage_dir/lanci/
# This dir has many html files inside it, maybe in sub dir.
# Any html file is a photo gallery, with inline images of photos.
# all the image files are in under the given dir, or in subdir.

# • The goal is to create thumbnail images of all the inline images
in all html files under that dir.
# • These thumbnail images destination can be specified, unrelated to
the given dir.
# • Thumbnail images must preserve the dir structure they are in. For
example, if a inline image's full path is /a/b/c/d/1.img, and the a
root is given as /a/b, then the thumbnail image's path must retain the
c/d, as sud bir under the specified thumbnail destination.
# • if the inline image's size is smaller than a certain given size
(specified as area), then skip it.

# Note: online inline images in a html file will be considered for
thumbnail. Any other images in the given dir or as linked images should
be ignored.
###############################################
import re, subprocess, os.path

# path where html files and images are at. e.g. /a/b/c/d
inPath= '/Users/xah/3D-XplorMath/Curves' # no trailing slash

# a substring of inPath. The thumbnails will preserve dir structures.
If a image is at /a/b/c/d/e/f/1.png, and rootDir is /a/b/c, then the
thumbnail will be at /x/y/d/e/f/1.png
rootDir= '/Users/xah/3D-XplorMath/Curves' # no trailing slash

# the destination path of thumbanil images. It will be created.
Existing things will be over-written. e.g. /x/y
thumbnailDir= '/Users/xah/3D-XplorMath/Curves/tn' # no trailing slash

# thumbnail size
thumbnailSizeArea = 150 * 150

# if a image is smaller than this area, don't gen thumbnail for it.
minArea = 200*200

# imageMagic 'identify' program path
identify = r'/sw/bin/identify'
convert = r'/sw/bin/convert'

# depth of nested dir to dive into.
minLevel=1; # files and dirs of mydir are level 1.

def scaleFactor(A,(w,h)):
'''getInlineImg(A,(w,h)) returns a number s such that w*s*h*s==A.
This is used for generating the scaling factor of a image with a given
desired thumbnail area A. The w and h are width and height of rectangle
(image). The A is given size of thumbnail of the photo (as area). When
the image is scaled by s in both dimensions, it will have desired size
specified by area A as thumbnail.'''

path to the local link. For example,

contain double slash or '../' string.'''

u'''Generate thumbnail images. dPath is directory full path, and
fName is a html file name that exists under it. The tbPath is the
thumbnail images destination dir. The areaA is the thumbnail image size
in terms of its area. This function will create thumbnail images in the
tbPath. rPath is a root dir subset of dPath, used to build the dir
structure for tbPath for each thumbnail.

For Example, if
dPath = '/Users/mary/Public/pictures'
fName = 'trip.html' (this exits under dPath)
tbPath = '/Users/mary/Public/thumbs'
rPath = '/Users/mary/Public' (must be a substring of dPath or equal to
it.)
and trip.html contains <img ="Beijin/day1/img1.jpg">
then a thumbnail will be generated at
'/Users/mary/Public/thumbs/pictures/Beijin/day1/img1.jpg'

This func uses the imagemagick's shell command “convert” and
“identify”, and assumes that both's path on the disk are set in the
global vars “convert” and “identify”.'''
