Using Xml4Ssp 1.3 Rev 1
Since there's no real documentation, I'll be covering how I ended up using it to generate my latest gallery.
Starting folder structure
I began with the following folder structure:
The only folder that contained content was the FullsizeImage directory, in which I dumped my JPG originals.
Assuming it's already installed and started, I created a New gallery.
Next, I browsed to the gallery folder, and began filling out the rest as follows.
Browse gallery folder: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\temp\casio_images
Images folder name: FullsizeImag
Album Title/Description: Use Foldername
Use Permalinks: None
Search for: JPG
Images caption: Use Filename
Use Hyperlink: None
Larger Image Folder: FullsizeImage
Thumb folder name: Thumb
Create Thumbnails (checked)
Constrain proportion by Width
Resize method: nearest neighbor (Default)
Once I generated, it successfully created the thumbnails, but did not create the resized images. This leads me to believe that the FullsizeImage directory is not resized at all.
On the one hand this is good, on the other, it would be nice if it did. You can fix this by saving the generated XML file and changing the Thumb folder name to another directory. Next, change the width/height/constrains/quality accordingly.
And with that, you've generated a gallery, with the necessary XML file, in less than usual time!
