What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing Img4Web 3 for Mac OS X

Mac OS X software Img4Web 3






TOKYO (MacHouse) – When you try to show pictures with an HTML table on a remote server, a few things can go easily wrong. You probably know relative paths to image files on your remote server, but you can’t really test your html code on your local computer. And you create thumbnails out of actual pictures, and you create them again after making some changes, and again and again. That’s so cumbersome. That’s why I’ve developed Img4Web, which lets you generate HTML code with thumbnails. But there are limitations. For example, it won’t let you generate multiple rows of tables when you have a lot of pictures to show with an HTML table. So what can I do about that? Well, I’ve worked my butt off for the last several days in order to upgrade this more-than-two-year-old application. As a result, I submitted Img4Web 3 to Mac App Store a few hours ago.

Img4Web 3 lets you create thumbnails out of actual-size pictures at the same time when it generates HTML code to show them in a multi-row table.

    I purchased Img4Web and would offer a couple of things that might be nice if you were to update the product. I would love to see an option whereby the Alt Tase could be the name of the file preferably without the extension. Second, although less important to me would be to be able to limit the page size for the index, thus creating multiple index files if one exceeded the table size size limit.

    Thanks, nice product

  2. Mr. Murphy,

    Thank you for your using Img4Web. And thank you for your tips. Yes, when I update the application next time, I’ll adopt your tips. Good day…

  3. Mr. Murphy,

    By your referring to the Alt Tase, I suppose you mean the alternative tag. With a new sofware update that I submitted a few minutes ago, it will take care of that. As for the second request, I’m afraid I have to pass. Goo day…
