View Full Version : Creating an image gallery help
My father is creating a website and is trying to create an image gallery wherby he has a horizontal line of small preview pictures with the larger versions showing underneath when clicked.
I need something which is easy to update meaning that if i want to add more pictures all i need to do is place the preview pic and the orginal each in certain folders and then be able to have simple code for the pictuires which i can easily copy when adding new picture changing the file name and or size of course. I just don't know where to start??
Cheers for any help.

You could try with one of the dozen of free PHP Galleries there are out there, for example: PHP Photo Album (http://www.phpalbum.net) (<- Link)
Like that one, there are tons of very user friendly free cms.

What scripting language do you want to use?
You'll find PHP galleries, AJAX galleries, Flash galleries, both free and commercial. Also note that you may prefer to search for slideshows.
I've used Postcard Viewer recently - one of several viewers from these people:

And remember... Google is your friend ;-)

Most of this stuff should be handled by the Gallery already. I once got a Gallery (Simple Viewer, linked a post above) where I just put some Pics in a Folder and pressed an "Update" Button. The pics were added to the gallery then, with automatic thumbnail creation and whatnot.
So yeah, saving time with an easy script is also a plus :nod:
Cheers for the suggestions. Going to try simple viewer and see how easy that is.
