Basic Usage Instructions
This script is designed to make it very easy for you to add new photo albums to your website. All you need to do is upload you pictures to a new folder and the photos automatically appear on your website. Users can view the photos one by one, and even display them in slideshow mode!
Step 1: FTP into your server
Step 2: Navigate to your root photo folder (typically, "/photos")
Step 3: Create a new folder
The name of the folder will become the "Album Name" that the user sees.
Step 4: Copy the "phpslideshow.php" and "template.html" file from an existing photo album directory and place it in your newly created folder. (If you have any .txt files that are associated with your Flash banner, copy them as well.)
To do this, create a text file names pics.txt that looks like the following, and copy it to your new folder:Create captions for some or all of your photos Create a new folder Navigate to your root photo directory (this will be emailed to you) FTP into your web server

What the users see
Users are initially brought to a main Photo Album selection screen (seen above) where they can select the photo album that they want to see. All folders in your "root" photo directory will be displayed.
Users can navigate through the album by selecting "back" or "next" at the top of the screen, or selecting "beginning" at the bottom of the screen. "start slideshow" will automatically cycle through the photos. "home" will return the user to the home page.The name of the photo file comes first, followed by a semi-colon, followed by the caption associated with that photo. Each photo / caption should be on a separate line in the pics.txt file. You do not need to specify a caption for every photo.
