How would I plugin-ify this? (1 post)

    I have a function that works great as a page template... but I'd like to be able to use it in posts. The way it is now, if I use the following in a page template it takes the directory and appends the page slug to the end of it, and generates a page of thumbnails that are linked to the pages (in this case though, they use lightbox2) I'd like to be able to call on this in a post say <thumbs> or something and, using the post slug the same way, generate the thumbnail list. I suck at writing PHP from scratch so honestly I don't know where to begin... but the guts of this is written.

    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: Projects
    */
    ?>
    <div class="post">
    <?php

    $imgurl = '/bench/wordpress/projects/'.$post->post_name; // the directory, where your images are stored
    $imgdir = '/home/nolageek/public_html/bench/wettermark/wordpress/projects/'.$post->post_name;
    $allowed_types = array('png','jpg','jpeg','gif'); // list of filetypes you want to show
    echo $imgdir;

    $dimg = opendir($imgdir);
    while($imgfile = readdir($dimg))
    {
    if(in_array(strtolower(substr($imgfile,-3)),$allowed_types))
    {
    $a_img[] = $imgfile;
    sort($a_img);
    reset ($a_img);
    }
    }

    $totimg = count($a_img); // total image number

    for($x=0; $x < $totimg; $x++)
    {
    $size = getimagesize($imgdir.'/'.$a_img[$x]);

    // do whatever
    $halfwidth = ceil($size[0]/3);
    $halfheight = ceil($size[1]/3);
    echo '<a href="'.$imgurl.'/'.$a_img[$x].'" rel="lightbox"><img style="float:left; padding:5px;border: 1px solid black; margin: 5px;"src="'.$imgurl.'/'.$a_img[$x].'" height="50"</a>';
    }
    ?>
    <br clear="both" />
    </div>
