Images are stored in files. The $basePath parameter in
slooze_local.php defines the root directory where the files are to be
found. Thumbnails filenames must end with $thumb_suffix and normal
size filenames must end with $picture_suffix.

To add new pictures, you should create a directory per user in
$basePath. This is to avoid possible name clashes between users. A
user shouldn't have to care about other users rolls. And in the
directory of the user, there must be a directory per roll. For
instance, for user miguel and roll birthday, you would have:



Once the files are there, you can user the web interface to "declare"
the new roll. You must be logged in, go to the "admin view", and then
"my rolls". Or directly point your browser to "/admin.php?MyRolls". 
Choose a rollID for the roll, check "add all pictures", (this add all
unregistered pictures found in the rolls directory in the new roll),
select a initial topic where to put the pictures, and initial groups
that will be able to see the pictures. When you create a new user, a
single user group is created for that user. The logged in user is
always added so that the owner of a picture can always see it.

The more I think about it, the more I think there's one connection per
Apache process.

As long as interbase supports the postgresql features that I use,
there should be no problem. It should just be a matter of uncommenting
the right line in slooze_local.php. But since I haven't tested with
anything but postgresql, it is possible that a few queries need to be
