What is it?

Album - [1] An HTML photo album generator that supports themes. It takes directories of images and creates all the thumbnails and HTML that you need.

Album is a perl script, which means you need to be comfortable with or prepared to use the command-line. If you just want a point-and-click, you may wish to look elsewhere. Features:

  • You can use themes to choose or redesign the album "look and feel."
  • Recursively descends directories to make a hierarchy of photo albums
  • EXIF support, Video thumbnails...
  • Has a plugin system that allows you to write perl code to alter the behavior of album.
  • Slideshows, transparent overlays, credit tags, easy captions, and endless features!
