CF based Image Gallery - LiveJournal ColdFusion User Group

phydOct. 28th, 2003 11:59 am CF based Image Gallery

All your images are belong to ColdFusion :)

My latest CF programming fling has to do with my hard to navigate pictures directory. I'm serious, I have a boat load of pictures I've put up online, and the things are just a pain to go through. So, what did I do? I made a CF program that generates thumbnails on the fly, and displays them all for me, so I don't have to deal with it. Thank you, Cold Fusion!

The downside? It can be a little server intensive... it's time for a new one anyway... You can check it out at the following address: http://www.phydiux.com/pic_gallery/. I'm sure it will be up/down/flakey/or slow for the next few days, until it's all done.

What do ya think? No, you can't have it! :D

Anyway, just to fill in some more information, this tag uses CFX_image, which is a great image manipulation tag. I would use it all the time if I could, but not everything I have to do with CF has to do with image manipulation ;)

CFX_image is the oldest custom tag I know of. Definitely a staple in today's image-intensive web world.

This is true. I've done just about everything with this tag that I've been able to do.

Sadly, though, the quality on images that have been resized isn't the greatest. Even with the quality setting at 99, you still end up with some grainy pictures when you're done. Other than that, though, it's a great CFX tag!
