For some time, I've been looking around for a good photo album solution for my blog. I wanted to be able to host it (as opposed to using a hosted solution like Web Shots). I also wanted something that would take the drudgery out of uploading the pictures, creating the thumbnails, index pages, etc. This weekend, I installed Gallery on my server. It seems to be just what I was looking for. Its PHP based and I'd never used that before, so the hardest part of the instlalation was just getting up to speed on PHP and getting it working on my server. I created an album with the pictures I took on my recent trip to Tucson to attend the Center for Digital Governments RE:PUBLIC conference.
