imgpstrt - Search for and display images from an on-line photo database
Text_Box word [ word word word ....... ]
IMGPSTRT takes user supplied word(s) and searches a compiled database
of keywords that have associations with specific photographs in an
existing image collection.
One or more search words can be entered in the text_box. If multiple
words are entered, they must be separated by one or more space characters.
If a match is found for the supplied words, a 'thumbnail' version
of those images will be displayed in up to a 3x2 table.
Each thumbnail image is linked to a larger version of the same image.
"Clicking" on the 'submit' button appearing below the image with the
left mouse button will display a larger version of the same image.
Any existing captions associated with the chosen image will be
displayed at the bottom of the output screen.
Images are grouped in "collections". Each collection keyword appears
in uppercase. Selecting a collection will display all images that are
included in that collection.
Keywords appearing in lowercase identify unique image properties that
exist within collection(s).
Keywords can be entered in either uppercase or lowercase in the text_box,
however, if two or more words are intended to be read as a single unit,
they must be joined with an underscore:
tall ship no good
new york city no good
Selecting the "[Add/Remove] Lightbox" checkbox button appearing below
each thumbnail image(s) when in 'Search Mode' will select such image(s) for
addition or removal from the current lightbox.
The "Next Page", "Previous Page" "Jump to Page" or "Update Lightbox"
submit buttons will add/remove the selected image(s) from the lightbox.
The "View Lightbox" button reads in the current lightbox file, switches to
'Lightbox Mode' and displays those image(s) in up to a 3x2 table.
The "Clear Lightbox" button deletes all images saved in the lightbox. The
"New Search" submit button starts a new search session, preserving the
current/previous lightbox if exists.
Images selected in the 'Search Mode' are now displayed in the Lightbox Mode.
A larger version of the displayed image(s) can be viewed by "clicking" on
the 'submit' button appearing below the thumbnail image.
Images appearing in the lightbox can be chosen for removal by selecting the
"Remove Lightbox" checkbox button appearing below the thumbnail image(s).

The "Return to Search" submit button returns the user to the previous
'search', placing the user back in "SEARCH MODE", at the page where the
user left off.
The "Logout" submit button ends the user's current session, deleting all
search data files. Lightbox files are preserved and remain available
until the user decides to remove them.
