Suramya’s Collage Generator Ver 0.1 released

Filed under: Software Releases,Website Updates — Suramya @ 7:37 AM

Released Ver 0.1 of Suramya’s Collage Generator in the scripts section. This software creates a collage using images located using the Yahoo Image search based on your search terms.

The script was written in Perl and uses a modified version of webcollage to generate the collage. The current version is kind of slow (It takes about 45-60 secs to generate the collage) but I am working on improving that. The biggest delay is in downloading the images from the web and haven’t figured out to reduce that yet. I am also hacking the webcollage script further to reduce the collage generation time.

Check it out and let me know what you think.


Update 3:40 am:

The server is really busy right now so the script times out before it generates the entire collage. I will fix it tomorrow… today… you know what I mean. Might move it to a different server to speed it up. Will keep you posted.

Update: 23rd March:

Moved the server component to my home computer which is a lot faster than the webserver. This speeds up the collage creation but its still pretty slow. Secondly the script seems to have problems with multiple word searches, I am trying to figure out why and how to fix it. If you have any idea’s let me know. I might convert this script to use google API’s instead of yahoo to make it more accurate. Lets see….
