Write simple screen scraper, integrate it into my Ruby site

Please look at my site for [photo workshops][1] to understand this.

My web site is written in Ruby on Rails, uses a MySQL database, and runs on Linux. In this project you will:

* 1. Find the table that has the links to the photo workshop description pages.

* 2. Write a screen scraper that finds the four largest images on a description page and downloads them.

* 3. Find the table in which the photos are stored. Resize the photos according to various options and then put them into the photo table, setting correct fields in the database so that they are properly linked to the photo workshop. Be careful not insert duplicate images if there are already images in the database.

* 4. Add links on the administrative portion of the web site so that steps 1-3 can be initiated from the page for editing a photo workshop. These links will carry a parameter saying whether the photos should be resized to a standard large size or to a thumbnail size.

* 5. Create a script that will run steps 1-3 for all photo workshops in the database (essentially a batch mode)

## Deliverables

I would like to clarify a couple of things. First, here is an example of a "photo workshop description page":

[url removed, login to view]

Now, on this page you will see a link to the photography workshop company's page describing this workshop:

[url removed, login to view]

Your goal is to access the second page, find the four largest images, download them, resize them, and put them in my database.

Note that we will have to set a minimum size of 200x200 pixels for images that will be downloaded. So some pages might yield 0 images, and others fewer than four. But the maximum is four.

Secondly, there have been some questions about the parameters for resizing in various dimensions. There are two modes for the desired program.

In one mode the images are all thumbnailed to 96x96. In the other mode all images are resized to a maximum of 800x800. That is, if the image is smaller, it gets left in its original size, but if it is larger it gets shrunk to 800x800.

I am looking for bids in the $75 range. That is approximately $25 for the screen scraper, $25 for the image adjustment, and $25 for integration with the site. I think that all three components are relatively easy.
