I have been looking for an alternative to manual posting of photos (creating galleries, and upload via ftp), but hadn't found much I liked. Below is a link to a php-based gallery that I am now trying out:

Please take a look, and enjoy the photos, but also let me know what you think of the gallery itself. Thanks for your help.

Some really great photos here! I particularly like the MWO set.

If you want to strictly do photo galleries on your own web site then JAlbum is one that I've used and been pretty happy with: http://jalbum.net/

These days my preference is to use Picassa Web for the online albums since Picassa on the PC makes the photo management and uploading process so easy. The link to my Picassa public gallery is in my signature below.

Thanks Mark. I'll take a look at JAlbum. Re: Picassa, I like it, but I primarily use a Mac, so it doesn't do me much good... Gallery, which I linked to, is compatible with a lot of common photo-editing/management apps, and other gallery websites, so it is easy to add photos.

As many here know I have used www.fotki.com for years. their premium account gives extra features over the free service. Original files are saved, they are resized for viewing, the gallery can be branded in another site. the uploading process has several options to include assigning an e-mail address to a specific album. I use this for cell phone images. take the picture and e-mail to the Fotki address and it is posted right away.

Here is a list of the options for adding images - some may apply for the Mac.

For bulk uploading I use SmartFTP (free) and their queued capability. Show the album on Fotki in the left panel. Show the directory with files on the right side. Drag whichever files you want to the left side and take the queue option. Those files will be placed in a queue and the system runs them to the site including doing retries if needed - even if the connection were to be lost.

I'll second the JAlbum nod. Very easy to use and upload.

Picasa does have a tool for the Mac so you can upload to it from iPhoto

Has anyone checked out this web browser plugin yet?

http://www.piclens.com

I've been using it for a few weeks now. It's really sweet, works with picasaweb, flickr, photobucket, smugmug and others

I like using it with Flickr, view a "pool" of images, click on the arrow on one, and then explore the picture wall.
