I'm yet another user who is running into jpegtran issues. I'm trying to get my fiancee and a few of my friends (and possibly family) to post their images to my gallery server and I want things to just work. I was wondering if it would be possible to implement a change to the applet that would send some kind of control information along with the image that would instruct the local image manipulation utilities on the server to run before the image is added to the gallery. This would prevent the user from needing to have anything but java installed locally (and have a nice side benefit of keeping the user's machine from having to do additional heavy lifting if it is very slow). I haven't hacked on gallery before and I'm looking for some guidance as to the size/scope of such an undertaking.
