I have made some small changes to Pictorialis which are reflected in the new download.
– Two different methods of creation of thumbnails
– Choose a small area of the picture
– Chose whole picture
– Now has the ability of using NetPBM instead of GD, option in wp-admin/post.php
– Better upload code, faster processing
– Addition of extra code to weed out posts with no pictures. This blog now produces thumbnails of posts which have pictures and thus pictorialis can now be used as a full text blog as well without penalty.

There are some more updates and fixes planned, they will come as and when time permits.

    hi, i really like your script – its exactly what ive been looking for! i installed it to sort of test it out the other day and it worked great! i decided to do a fresh install this afternoon and convert my blog over to it but now im running into problems when i upload photos even though im doing things the same way on the same server!

    do you have the version from a few days ago still online somewhere so i could just use that instead of trying to debug this? :)

    Yes I do, for just that reason! Get it at http://weblogtoolscollection.c.....is_old.zip

    Spread the word and give the new one a shot when you get a chance. You will like it!
    Peace

    Hi there. I’ve installed Pictorialist this morning to give it a shot. As I have not yet migrated from MT to WP, it’s the best time to try out, throw out, rince, repeat. :-)

    My question is this: from what I see, Pictorialis generates a post with the large picture and creates a thumbnail which is for reference/archive. What I am looking for is pretty much the reverse of this: I wish for a post to hold a number of thumbnails, and when a thumbnail is clicked, it takes you to a post with the large picture. Is that doable with Pictorialis, taking into account I’m far from being a programmer.

    If you have a little bit of patience, I can tell you that is the next feature creep of Pictorialis. I will provide the option of either choosing one big picture or a bunch of thumbnails (clickable) for a single post. That should give people the opportunity of building galleries out of WordPress as well. :)
    I might have this done this coming weekend, but no promises.

    Well, knowing it’s coming, I certainly can have the patience. :)

    Besides, I still have plenty of stuff to learn about WB and how to tweak it to be exactly what I want. It does raise one extra question. I saw when I installed Pictorialis the first time it’s the full WP package. IF WordPress is already installed and configured on a system, is it – or would it be – possible to install Pictorialis over, without losing everything that has been configured, i.e. plugins, CSS, etc.

    Benoit,
    You could install Pictorialis in its own folder, separate from your existing WP installation. You could still use the same database, however, by specifiying a unique field prefix. For example, the default is wp_ for WordPress; you could use pix_ in your wp-config.php file for your Pictorialis WP installation. That way, both installs can use the same database.

    Hope this makes sense.
    Craig.

    It sure does. Thanks! :) I’m quite new at this, but I must say so far I’m finding any fix I’m pointed to is easier to implement than the ones I messed with in MT. That’s a very pleasant surprise indeed.

    Hi Mark. Any hint as to when the thumbnails posts will be creeping in yet?

  11. Mark (58 comments.) says:

    Thumbnails posts will be in the next version, which will be released after WordPress 1.2 Final is out. So maybe in another couple of weeks.
