Pigalle comes from PIcture GALLEry and is a slick web based photo album written in PHP 5. With Pigalle you can easily create and maintain albums of photos via an intuitive interface. A great combination of simplicity and powerful features!

You just upload your files to your server and Pigalle will generate thumbnails for images. Visitors can choose their preferred image resolution and images will get generated on the fly.

Generated images are cached on the server's filesystem and all meta-information like album description, image information, and user settings are stored in a database system. A back-end administration interface helps to manage the files, edit the descriptions and so on, making it very easy and convenient.

As Pigalle is based on the Sourdough framework, you are able to use any of the following database systems for operation: MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MSSQL, and many more coming up soon.

Pigalle also does support various different image transformation libraries.

Fully customizable layout and interface (skins support, template based)
