If you've got a Unix, Linux, or Mac system, I've got what you need.
If you (or anyone else) would like a copy of the script, let me know.
The only dependancy it has is that you install a (free) package called
I wrote such a script for Linux, see its results on
The projects directory is a directory tree with pictures at various
levels. The script traverses the directory and makes thumbnails and
index files. I only type little "intro.txt" files where I add some
descriptions, these are incorporated into the index HTML files.
I can share this script. It needs ImageMagick software package to make
Here's my favorite, on the Mac OS: PhotoSite TimeSaviour - free and
fast and you can configure it for different sizes of thumbnails and set
custom background and font colors. See it here:

Not quite free, but for the PC, give ACDSEE a try. It's about $50,
downloadable trial version. It's bloated quite a bit over the years,
but still only a 12M download.

IrfanView does it just fine.
It even can generate a HTML file for each image so you get forward and
back buttons or it can just make one simple HTML index page.
To find this facility choose 'Thumbnails' from the main program's 'File'
menu then in the Thumbnail window, select the files you want and choose
'Save selected thumbs as HTML file...' from the 'File' menu. LOTS of
It can also handle most common image manipulation and viewing tasks and
supports batch processing. Make sure you get the program and the
plugins to add comprehensive file format support. Free for personal,
educational and charitable use. otherwise currently 12$ US. Runs on all
Windows 9X upwards. Reccomended.
At last I've been able to retire my horrible Pascal scripting running on
HYperimage from Hyperact under Windows for Workgroups 3.11 dating back
to 1995 :-)
You don't need software to do this.....
1. copy each image
2.resize each image copy to, say 100X100 pixel thumbs
3. arrange the thumbs on 1st web page to liking
4. creat 1 web page for each full size image and place each full size
image on it's page.
5. Link each thumb to each image page

After doing this twice for about 100 images I wrote a program to drive
my then image editor and make the pages automatically. Nothing fancy,
just a script in its pascal dialect. I must be thick because I did it
twice by hand ;-)
IMHO the OP should try it a couple of times with a few images to get a
feel for what looks good and what HTML is wanted around the IMG tags
then hand the job off to IrfanView. Computers are ment to make life
easier. If you have a fair number of similar parts to mill in batches
changing one dimension would you crank the handles on your CNC equipped
Bridgeport all week or sit down for an hour and write some G code so
you'll be finished same day?
I can provide you one, assuming certain conditions are met:
1) It needs to be a unix system, as this is in the form of a
2) You need to have the same additional (free) tools installed
for extracting information from the images, and for resizing
them on the fly.
It actually provides three sizes -- the thumbnail, a reasonably
sized image, and, instructions in the beginning of the web page to allow
you to get the original full-sized (too large for a normal web page)
