Free PHP Photo and Image Gallery Scripts
Photo Galleries or Photo Albums are basically PHP scripts that make it easy for you to display your photos on your website. The scripts usually create a thumbnail of all the photos you want displayed, and show them in a web page. If your visitors want to view the full sized image, they can click it and the script will display the original photo. Depending on the gallery script you choose, there may be support for slideshows as well. Some scripts also allow you to administer your photo album directly through the browser - that is, you can create new galleries and upload photos through an administration (or admin) panel, making it easy-to-use for novice users. If this is not available, you can simply upload your pictures using an FTP program, the way you do a normal web page.
