 Automated Web Photo Galleries with iPhoto and Perl

"In iPhoto, photos are selected based on category, and formatted using iPhoto's email capabilities. iPhoto then uses Apple Mail to build an email message including the photos and emails it away to an address on the server. As the message arrives at the server, a Perl program intercepts it, picks out the various pieces and accompanying photos, applies some basic ImageMagick, then drops it all into a MySQL database on the server. When folks visit her site, based on what they select, a couple of different applications access the MySQL database to present the photos from our server."
