The latest release fixes "a nasty, but minor, crashing bug" found in the iPhoto import feature.
WebPics is an OS X application to build and upload Web pages from iPhoto albums or other collections of digital images. The pages feature thumbnails automatically linked to the full-sized images and captions whose style can be customized.
The new version fixes an iPhoto album import crash.
Highlights of version 2.6 include:
- Added an iPhoto 2.0 album import feature;
- Improved the vertical spacing of thumbnails and captions;
- Added 'Use original images' choice in the Output tab;
- Extracting original photo date/time from EXIF data ;
- Added support to preserve the EXIF (camera) data in generated photo files;
- Added support to search for missing pictures when opening documents;
- Fxed the FTP to Web server feature to work with 10.x and 9.2;
- Complete AppleScript scripting support;
- Added support for home page links on the gallery pages;
- Redesigned the HTML generation to use cascading style sheets (CSS) in place of font tags; and
- Added support text overlay on pictures (typically used for copyright information).
WebPics runs under Mac OS 9.0 or newer or Mac OS X 10.1 or newer requiring at least 32-MB RAM, although "the more RAM the faster WebPics will build web pages," the company noted. QuickTime version 3.0 is required and QuickTime 4.0 or above is suggested.
