Revision 1.8.0pjm (2017-02-11)
About: Piwigo2Img is a web software used as Piwigo image to BBcode or HTML code generator. It can be used to insert Piwigo images in internet posts or comments in a very fast way.
I have created originally as a PhpBB3 mod (manual installation), which is adding a [piwigo] button in PhpBB3 message posting toolbar. That permit PhpBB3 users to insert [IMG] and [URL] bbcode in forum messages, linking to the pictures of one or multiple Piwigo galleries.
Check the documentation "\piwigo2img-readme\piwigo2img-2-install.txt" for how to install Piwigo2Img as a post button in:
-Wordpress (as plugin)
-bbPress (as plugin)
-PhpBB3 (as mod)
-SMF (as mod)
-PunBB (as mod)
-Vanilla (as mod)
Since it generates the code in it's own textarea, it also can be accessed directly http://yoursite.com/path-to-your/piwigo2img.php for standalone usage. It can be adapted very easily as posting toolbar button to other software.

Revision 1.1 (2016-07-01)
About: Picture2Piwigo resume outline its precursor (from Picasa2Piwigo of KenL, thanks to him), while improving it with new features. Through reading the Picasa database, it's possible to upload almost all available information. In return, the application must read each time you start Picasa database (under 15s to read anyway).
Works in 3 ways:
- Directly from Picasa (by creating a button to upload album)
- Calling Picasa albums (allows upload multiple albums in a row without open Picasa)
- In free mode (upload any folder containing pictures)
- No more 120 pictures limitation from Picasa
- Management duplicates in Piwigo (no upload if the picture already exists)
- Reading data XMP / IPTC (with ExifTool.exe command line utility)
- Management facetags Picasa (XMP or database)
- Automatic permission system based on keywords / facetag (if a keyword/facetag is present, it grants access to users/groups)
- Added pictures per chunk (avoids PHP timeout errors)
- Pause/Resume upload
- Add support of virtual/people albums
Hoping it brings you satisfaction.
Changes: - Correct some bug on database reading
- Add support of virtual and people album
- Support of picasa.ini files (for virtual album)
- Add more verboses during process
- Several UI improvement
- English conversion improvement
- Drastic reduction size of installation
Huge thanks to Sridhar for his patience, ideas and testing.

Revision 2.31 (2015-09-07)
About: PiwigoPress is the one-stop solution for linking WordPress with your Piwigo photo album.
On the one hand, it provides a WordPress Sidebar Widget that links your blog to some public pictures of a Piwigo gallery. The widget also generates several highly valuable links in sidebars of your WordPress blog, all of them being optional: a thumbnail linking to the corresponding picture page, menus directing to all albums defined as public in the gallery, several additional links to most recent, most viewed, most commented pictures, and more.
On the other hand, by using a shortcode [PiwigoPress ...] you can add any public picture of a Piwigo gallery. To facilitate writing of shortcodes, PiwigoPress provides a shortcode generator. Each time you add some pictures to your gallery you will be able to add a post related to your last uploaded photos. So, your friends and family are going to like your photos and Search Engines are going reference your gallery with the refbacks provided by PiwigoPress.
Development of PiwigoPress is open to contributions, please use the github page (https://github.com/norbusan/piwigopress) for patches, bug reports, and issues.
