first desktop app taking shape

I’ve been doing quite a bit of Delphi recently, and needed a little project to get my teeth into so have been building a little windows app which will let me browse and preview jpeg images in a directory, select one or more then create thumbnail and web size jpegs, plus the XHTML and CSS to display them in a basic gallery.

Of course there are already a million apps which do just this, but I have tailored this one to make the output exactly as I want it, and therefore now have a really quick and convenient way of selecting images from my camera CF card and getting them into a web gallery in a matter of seconds (OK maybe minutes) with no need to open photoshop or HTML editor.
