Do any of you people know any good server side gallery system? I have tons and tons of pictures I'd like to sort into various categories and put online, but I have not found anything that has been good or easy to setup. Since I have so many pics (about 15k+) it has to be robust and good enough to allow me to define custom categories etc so I can sort it all up properly. I want to be able to run it on my own server since hell would be by long frozen over before I let some company out there host my precious data.

It would be even better if it was some kind of open source system, but commercial works fine too as long as it's a good system.

I ever did run a site with Joomla!. There are some great extensions for to get some gallery's and all of that stuff.
Example of some Dutch-tv website: http://videoenaudio.gouweloos.com/compo ... temid,243/

I don't have a idea what that guy used. As I get time I will ask him :wink:

If you like the one on my site (you only need to have thumbails with the _THB_ before the name of the picture and put them in folders).
And it's free:

http://spgm.sourceforge.net/

It's simple to use, just upload it, maybe adjust some code and create folders and thumbnails.
And it's done.

I find this the best version and easy and it's free, I have searched many of those gallery's but or they where hard to handle or they cost money.

Almost forgot about this post :| .

Thanks for all the great ideas. I have been looking at them, but Gallery 2 seems to be the closest thing I can see that matches my idea. The others has been either too custom or just too "old". What I needed was automatic thumbnail generation and as a little admin work as possible when adding new pics. I want basically just drop them into a new folder and let the gallery do the rest.

Ah well, I need to experiment some :).

To leonbollerup: That would be fun, but I know very little about php. I've done quite a lot with gd (through perl), but my php skills are... well... i can understand it somewhat, but not code. Making a new gallery would be a massive undertaking, and I don't feel I am ready for that. I just want something that can host a couple of galleries for me, some public and some private. Without too much fuss =). But if I need help with GD or PHP I sure know now who to ask! :idea: .
