[Web4lib] seeking software for putting photographs on the web

I've used Gallery  (<http://gallery.menalto.com/>) for this purpose on my 
personal web site.  With gallery, you can assign keyword terms to photos 
that are searchable, not visible.  You can have nested galleries, and the 
software automatically records how many views a picture has received. 
You can also customize the size of each picture, and users can have 
multiple sizes to choose from when viewing.

There is also a product called Gallery Remote that works very much like the 
Flickr desktop uploader.

Best of all, Gallery is opensource, the price is right for libraries.

Hope this helps,
