PicBook automatically produces a photo album in HTML format of your scanned images or photographs. It come with automatic image processing, slideshow, transition effects and other nifty stuff. It is easy to customise due to a configuration file and HTML-templates. PicBook is a Bourne-Shell script and therefore should run on any UNIX or Linux machine. It needs the standard grep and awk commands, which should be available on most systems. Additionally it needs convert and identify of the package to handle images.
