A zoomable image viewer for large collections of images
Galapix accomplishes this by keeping a tile cache which stores not only thumbnails for one size, but thumbnails of many different sizes.
Galapix can also be used to view gigapixel scale images.
galapix comes with a number of sub commands, allowing the user to either view images or pre generate thumbnails. The most basic command is:
./galapix view [FILES]...
Which display the given files. To pregenerate only the small thumbnails you use:
./galapix thumbgen [FILES]...
To generate not only the small thumbnails, but all tiles you use:
./galapix prepare [FILES]...
The other available commands are mostly for debugging and have little actualy use.
When you do not supply a list of files galapix will display all files in the database.
Via the -d flag you can specifiy a database, so that you can have different databases for different files.
