I have been trying for too long now to find photo gallery software that meets all my needs. I wanted one that would run in UNIX, but after trying for months, I came up empty. (I almost posted a rave review of Gallery, but then it all collapsed and I decided it did not merit the reviews I was going to give it.) I have finally settled on a program to help me generate photo galleries.
The Web Album Generator is a really nifty little piece of software. It’s a Win program, which I realize will make it of limited use to some. But it’s the best I could find that is not too clunky, generates reasonable files, and allows for a decent amount of customization. I had tried a version a while back and had considered it but decided against it. Having found my way to its Web site again I decided to give the new version a try and was impressed. The author of the program also maintains a support forum where users can submit their wishes for future versions. Again, it’s a very user-friendly program – both in terms of the steps needed to generate an album and regarding the outcome – so I highly recommend it.
