I'm in need of a photo gallery with thumbnail generation from hi-res images (150-300dpi JPG). Ideally I'd like to be able to upload the hi-res image and be able to sort them by category or folder and then when a visitor views a category/folder have the web-res thumbnails automatically generated (maybe even with image details like res, width/height, but this is not required). A web control panel to upload would be nice but not required, as long as I can specify the folder I FTP the images to.. Also when you click the thumbnail I want the visitor to be able to download/save the hi-res JPG, or have a download hi-res link available.
Is there any free or commercial php, flash, cgi script out there that can do anything like this? Or am I dreaming and need to have someone make this?
I've used both 4Images and Coppermine Photo Gallery before, and IMO Coppermine is much better. You can install it within about 5 minutes (it's that easy). If you want, I can show you what my gallery looks like to have a better picture
I've got fantastico, which has both 4images and Coppermine... so at the recommendation of the first reply, I installed 4images very easily... I'm still checking it out, uploading some images..
Is it easy to customize the look to fit a site's color scheme?
If I get this all figured out, a client of mine will likely want to use it and purchase a license for it, and have it customized to look like their site. I'm not sure I'll have time to customize it though, so I may end up posting in the offers forum to see if someone can do it for me for a small fee.
Thanks, yeah I've used Gallery for other projects but not for dealing with hi-res image downloads with thumbnails. I'm not sure it offers hi-res downloads. I am testing out 4images and it seems to work good, the lightbox feature is cool. Now I just need to skin/style it.
