A Simple PHP Image Gallery

Published by Ryan on

Why spend time carefully curating photos on a photo sharing website, when you can simply upload them to a PHP enabled server and drop in a single gallery file? That was the motivation behind this configurable drop-in I first authored in 2005. Since then, the web has evolved a bit so now the script has as well. While this isn’t flickr, it does add some useful bits over simply leaving the photos on the server and allowing native directory access. It does:

  • Multiple size thumbnail generation
  • On page and light box photo preview
  • Directory tree navigation
  • Full size downloads


  • A web server with PHP5+
  • GD Image library extension
  • Access to directory permissions
