Annotates medium images with a string of text such as a copyright tag. Copyright idea credit: Joe Botha

David Ljung Madison
Autorotates images based on EXIF captions. Uses 'jhead' program, and does rotation the first time it sees the image. Idea credit: Fridtjof Busse, who is too lazy to type jhead himself. :)

Scott J. Bertin

Requires epeg version or higher. (collapse)

Frank Breitling

   % album -media/videoplayer:no_symlink (collapse)

David Hansen
Hide any albums that match a regex.

Matt Forrest
If the image is a link, use a link for the medium and thumbnail. The image must be in an album readable by the webserver    (or have a 'tn/' directory)

Scott J. Bertin
Have images stored in one place appear in albums elsewhere.    .. (expand)

This plugin uses many hooks, and modifies album's internal data structures. Not all hooks are used for their intended purpose, so it should be loaded as the first plugin if possible. (collapse)

Scott J. Bertin
Sort pics/dirs as specified in a file (default "album.order").    .. (expand)

If an item appears twice in the file, the order of that item will depend on the first occurence that is found when the search is made. This creates interesting possibilities for ordering with and without the reverse_sort option. If you put an item both first and last in the file, it will appear first regardless of the reverse_sort option, assuming no unknowns, or an [:UNKNOWNS:] line between the 2 occurrences. (collapse)
