Catalog Your Graphics

Catalog Your Graphics

I needed a printed catalog of GIF images in a directory. So I wrote a routine that creates a new document, and inserts an image for each GIF file in the directory, along with its name and size. When the routine has finished, you can print or save the document:

 Sub ImageCat()	Dim sDir As String	Dim sFileName As String	Dim sHeight As Single	Dim sWidth As Single	Dim oShape As InlineShape	' This directory contains images	sDir = "D:WEBSprogramming\_THEMESMODULAR"	Documents.Add ' create new doc	' set left/right margins	With ActiveDocument.PageSetup		.LeftMargin = InchesToPoints(1)		.RightMargin = InchesToPoints(1)	End With	' Set Header/Footer text	With ActiveDocument.Sections(1)		.Headers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary) _			.Range.InsertAfter ("Listing of " _			& LCase$(sDir))		.Footers(wdHeaderFooterPrimary _			).PageNumbers.AddPageNumberAlignment: _			=wdAlignPageNumberRight	End With	ChangeFileOpenDirectory sDir	sFileName = Dir("*.gif")	' loop thru each file	Do Until sFileName = ""		'add some extra space		Selection.ParagraphFormat.SpaceBefore = 12		'Insert image		Set oShape = Selection.InlineShapes. _			AddPicture(FileName:=sDir _			& sFileName, LinkToFile:=False, _			SaveWithDocument:=True)		' show image @ 100%		oShape.ScaleHeight = 100		oShape.ScaleWidth = 100		' Get height and width		sHeight = oShape.Height * 4		sWidth = oShape.Width * 4		sHeight = sHeight  3		sWidth = sWidth  3		' print filename & size		Selection = vbTab & LCase$(sFileName) & " _			[" & CInt(sWidth) & _			" x " & CInt(sHeight) & "]"		Selection.InsertParagraphAfter		Selection.Collapse (wdCollapseEnd)		' next file		sFileName = Dir	LoopEnd Sub

This code does not check whether the image fits on the page; in my case all the images were small, such as Web buttons and rules.
