If you checked out the Photos section of this site, you’ll notice that it is now sporting a new look, and using a new software: PHP Simple Gallery. My good friend, Paul G, over at RelativelyAbsolute has put it together and has made it available for download. Here are the features:

  • Overlays your existing folder layout. To add more images or folders to your gallery, just upload them and they will automatically appear!
  • Automatically creates thumbnails of your images. No need to create thumbnails by hand!
  • Thumbnail caching for maximum performance. Each thumbnail is generated only once.
  • Built-in slideshow browsing.
  • No database requred!
  • Simple, text file configuration.
  • Google-friendly.
  • Valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional output.
  • CSS based, table-free layout.

PHP Simple Gallery is so simple, it’s ridiculous. Not to mention it supports web standards, and not many photo gallery software does that. Thanks Paul!
