What is it?
Album -  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!
There are a few photo gallery alternatives:
- Apache or Lighttpd or Thttpd
- Perl and the script for MarginalHacks:Album
- Imagemagick tools (specifically 'convert')
