PhotoGen is a bash shell script that creates photo galleries from a directory of JPEG and GIF images. The script generates thumbnails from the large images, and lets you choose a background color for the gallery add captions to each thumbnail image. Images can be resized without distortion. A home page URL can be added to each page, and you can optionally archive the original images in your working directory.
