I plan to automate some taks for our photo club, mainly preparing images for regional or national photo contests.
The idea is to make a little web interface where the users will be able to give 5 images (which is the number of images allowed in theses contests), and other usefull informations (user name, title for images…). The images and infos are then uploaded to our server; there, I can make some transformations on the images, like resizing, converting them to sRGB color space (using my cms.py action, for which I still have to implement automatic source color space recognition), renaming them using the given names, and maybe some other usefull modifications. Then, I can make a zip, and automatically send an e-mail with the download url to the contest responsible.
I think Phatch is THE tool to use, in server mode. It could be simply used by creating the action list, put it in the server, and then create the web form (BTW, I use mod_python PSP handler for the site). But it may be possible to go further: why not automatically and dynamically build the web form the same way gui actions are build?
Do you think it could be a good enhancement for Phatch? It's not all clear in my head what should be the correct way to do this, but I'm sure you have ideas… I also think it can also be discussed with sophacles proposition for Photoloadactions…
