A friend mentioned Gallery
, a PHP-driven image album. Only took a few minutes to get it downloaded and installed. I've probably spent more time fiddling with settings and how I want my albums
I'm guessing it may come in handy for arranging and sharing images. In fact, I already sent my family the URL for the Daisi photos
. Daisi gets around almost as much as Duck
To be honest, the shared albums are a by-product. For me, the real benefit of this program is that I can find images more quickly. When I need a picture, it should be much easier to find this wayespecially when compared to my old way of quitting pine, changing to the right directory, searching for what I think the file is named, testing it in the browser, and then repeating the search about 6 times before I find what I'm looking for. Online albums should be MUCH easier. And since you can hide albums and images, I can post various things that I use internally (e.g., wallpaper jpgs) so that they're much easier for me to find later.
Overall, it seems like a very nice piece of Open Source software. I'm glad I happened upon it.
