Easy Ajax Album

I’ve finished the first version of my easy online photo gallery software.

Easy Ajax Album is an open source PHP script that enables you to create an online photo album in seconds. Just copy the index.php file into the image directories on your web-server. That’s it! Download it here! [source]

Browse the example site to get an idea of what it looks like.

Features:

  • Simple to install.
  • Smooth modern user interface, using Ajax technology.
  • Slide show.
  • Captions.
  • EXIF data display.
  • Support for themes.

I’ve not yet implemented visitor comments, but that’s coming along.
