Galleria is a command-line tool to turn a directory of images into a Web gallery. Galleria project goes through the directory of pictures, resizes them to a specified size, and creates thumbnails. Afterward, index and detailed HTML pages are produced.

For its layout, galleria relies on templates. galleria comes with a nice default template, but custom templates can be easily created.

Here are some key features of "Galleria":
Works with templates, so you can have virtually any layout you want.
Templates can be re-applied to an already gallerized directory, so the images don't have to be resized again.
Uses ImageMagick to resize its images, ImageMagick supports over 90 major image formats, so almost any collection of images can be turned into a gallery.

What's New in This Release:
A lot of typos in both the program and the manpage were fixed.
The possibility to specify the image quality for the thumbnail and large image was added.
The possibility to specify a description file was added, so you can add a description with each image.
A flag was added to automatically convert images to JPEG, so now you can have a BMP gallery if you want.
The way imagemagick is called was changed to make porting to Windows easier.
UTF meta tags were added to the default templates.
