First of all, I would like to thank the creator of fgallery. I don't really do technical things, despite the fact that I'm here! My knowledge of most programmy networky things is "phrasebook" - I just copy and paste whatever someone on a forum tells me to. Nevertheless I was able to install Windows Subsystem for Linux and run this inside windows 10 just fine.You give it a folder of images, it resizes them (and rotates them, and detects faces to center the thumbnails if you ask it to) and makes thumbnails, and blurs a version of the photo to act as a background, and auto-generates all this in a STATIC page you can upload, so it is light and fast and simple on your lil home page.
You can add captions but on my machine the caption editing script is bugged. I'll fix it later.
The internet is a nasty yucky place these days, so even though I organized all my photos (not that many) I stripped out the ones with human faces, because I don't want anyone stealing my loved ones' souls.
So here are the photos! 2015 and earlier. Some of these I know are quite a bit earlier, going back to 2008 and 2011, but it's not only technical difficulties, harddrive loss, etc but also psychological, disliking taking photos etc, that means there are very few images from this time! I have a lot of sympathy for the No Thanks attitude to photographs. On the other hand, I may go doxx my old college friends to see if they still have their accounts from the dawn of facebook and some pictures might exist there....
