PhotoManager is a gui based application written in java. You organize your photos in a photo album by as many virtual picture sequences as you like. It is easy to use, easy to install and doesn't touch (neither modify nor copy or move) your pictures. This program is still beta.
Installing Photo Manager
Download the file photo-manager_1.2.4-0.zip. Download also the manual photo-manager-en-1.2.4.pdf. Make a directory/map with the name "photo-manager". Open the zip file and copy the contents to the new created directory/map. Copy also the manual to this directory/map. In the zip you will find an user manual, but this one is written in german. That's all!
The used pm.cmd file
Photo Manager works with Open JDK in OS/2-eCS. I have made a "pm.cmd" file with the following contents;
@echo off set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin set CLASSPATH= [drive: photo-manager] cd [drive: photo-manager]\photo-manager java -Duser.home=[drive: photo-manager]\photo-manager -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -Xms500M -Xmx800M -jar pm.jar 2>photo-manager-bugs.txtI had to break up the line "Java -Duser.home=...", in the commandfile they are one line, mind the space between "-jar" and "pm.jar". I use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for Photo Manager with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;
should be replaced by real drive letters. Adjust the file from the distribution below, ie. different drive and directories (maps). Save "pm.cmd" and copy it to the "photo-manager" directory (map).
Create a new program object. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: photo-manager]\photo-manager\pm.cmd". In the tabpage Session check the boxes "OS/2 window", "Running as an icon" and "Close Window to end program". In the tabpage General you can enter the name "Photo Manager". The download also has a nice OS/2 icon.
Parameters / options explained
In the file you can find the above command file (all drive letters are on set to C:) and an OS/2 Photo Manager icon: photo-manager-ecs.zip.
