About

top

The Web Gallery is a program that allow you to author (write) web pages to display a gallery of pictures or images in three easy steps.
It creates thumbnails of the images and authors (writes) Web pages automatically. The images can also be edited.
Since the Web Gallery uses a proprietary library (ImagXpress 3 from Pegassus Imaging Corporation) for the image display and editing tasks, this program is available for educational purposes only.
This program was created and designed under Windows 98 but also works under most Windows OS.
If you find any bugs or you would like some more features, please drop me a mail.
