I'm almost done with development of a simple photo gallery for myself. As the title stated, it's a folder based gallery where the script will treat folders as albums and no database required. Since it doesn't utilize database, I can simply add or remove any folder or any image anytime. It also generates thumbnails for by running a script thru browser.
You must be wondering, why should I create a photo gallery myself when there are already hundreds of free PHP galleries available out there. The reason is simple. Iâ€™ve tried out Gallery2 and found that itâ€™s really a very good script. I can even upload a zip file to server then easily instruct Gallery2 to unzip it and make it available to my visitors. However, sometimes, it has some problem generating thumbnails. Then, I had some problem deleting the album. After spending quite some time to trace those problems, I finally decided to develop one of my own.
Now, I'm in dilemma whether I should share it on the net or I should keep it to myself. I might have to improve my codes if I'm going to share it out. What do you think? Would it help somebody out there?
