PhotoShow – Open Source PHP Image Gallery With A Drag ‘n’ Drop Admin

PhotoShow is a free and open source PHP application for creating and managing a web gallery.

The application works without a database and uses the folder structure for creating the hierarchy of the galleries (supports unlimited sub-galleries).


Images can be added either from the admin panel via a drag 'n' drop uploader or directly from the filesystem. Organizing the folders/images, editing and deleting them are also accomplished with the same methods.

There is support for multiple users and groups where each can have different permissions.

PhotoShow can auto-generate thumbnails of images, display the EXIF data and allows others to comment them.
