File:LP, select pics.
07-11-03: Album covers were entered via computer control of
Canon A640 camera. 1hr47min incl. battery change. Used PhotoShop
macro to adjust images: rotate 180deg., resize to 2400x1800,
crop to margins, auto-contrast, convert to 256 colour, save a
copy, and close. Copy is then renamed to "file name".THM and is
available to WWWB "GRA" command tags. (All *.THM now renamed to
*.JPEG) Original .JPGs set to read-only. Could eventually be
deleted after all adjustments to thumbnails are complete. Final
1800x1800 .THM is readable, even of back of album.
12-03-22: associated sound file, if any, can be played on
WWWB from "double-click" menu. Page 1, option 1. Or use ctrl-C on
"gra" tag to play sound file, if it exists. Tag may be marked "#". MPC cmd
seems to work, mostly, but doesn't return to WWWB till selection is
done. Needs experimentation to get the timing right. The following
are more WWWB sound play commands.
MPC/file/start secs/duration secs/
PLAYVC - play with volume control. May hang the system; avoid, except for testing.
PLAY - seems to work. 12-03-23: now has volume option 1-100pc. Should prob. transcribe more LPs. Set up in lab downstairs. Need an arrangement with minimum finagling to operate. Use Nat's old Toshiba laptop? (long gone)
17-11-23: added "SND" cmd. Puts a sound control on web pages. Haven't figured how to make it large enough to be easily visible on the phone screen. "LNK" = link command doesnt seem to work well with sound files. Works OK for MP4 files.
