Gallery is a web based software product that lets you manage your photos on your own website.
You must have your own website with PHP and database support in order to install and use it.
With Gallery you can easily create and maintain albums of photos via an intuitive interface. Photo management includes automatic thumbnail creation, image resizing, rotation, ordering, captioning, searching and more. Albums and photos can have view, edit, delete and other permissions per individual authenticated user for an additional level of privacy.
It's great for communities - give accounts to your friends and family and let them upload and manage their own photos on your website!

You can easily customize Gallery to your needs.
Just install the typical Gallery package which just comes with a basic set of features.
Install Gallery and select from a large collection of 'modules' the ones that add the features you need.
Gallery can look like anything you want it to. You can choose from many existing 'themes'. Want to show more/less photos on each page? Want to change a title or description? You can do those things easily with some clicks. Do you want a completely different look? Change the theme or create your own theme!

Gallery is a PHP framework specialized for managing photo collections. We believe in creating a best-of-breed product and to seamlessly integrate it with other excellent products.
Gallery is not a blog software. But people found Gallery to be an excellent way to manage the photos that they show in their blog. Take a look at the Gallery / WordPress integration.
Basic Photo Album features:
Also note that Gallery manages photo collections in a hierarchical view, a tree of albums (albums, sub-albums, sub-sub-albums, etc). To get a relational view on your photo collection, you can use dynamic albums that are generated based on keywords / tags and other criteria like 'recently added items'.
