I have set-up my domain with dreamhost and have my own little blog and forum running for personal use. I am also sharing some of my photos right now by creating photo album via iPhoto/iWeb and giving manual link from the front page to photo gallery. ( my site: rushabh.smallthingy.net )

I am looking for server side software which can automatically generate albums and photo galeery , so that I do not have to create html code all the time. I just upload photos, select themes and thats it. Is there any good software available ?

So far, I only know of Gallery V2. But I am not very fond of gallery. The album created are not good visually and slideshow java applet just make me throw up.

Other one I came across is slideshowpro. I have only read about it on the website. Anyone has tried it ? How is it ? Slideshows look pretty appealing on their demo site. I would like to know more about it.

Do you guys know any of the other software which I can install on server side for slideshow/photo album generation ? thanks.

Try looking at JetPhoto (http://www.jetphotosoft.com/web/).

It has Client and Server software, allows you to publish your iPhoto libraries and it's free!

And the reviews on versiontracker (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/25932) are excellent

CopperMine is what I (and a bunch of my friends) use. I'll have to look at the Jet Photo one.

I wish someone would make one that interfaced 100% with iPhoto ... i.e. all of the folders and albums you create in iPhoto you could easy import into it.

Agreed. That is the main reason I am not planning to use Gallery, even though It's one of the most famous one out there. Currently, I am just making album with iWeb/RapidWeaver and syncing it manually online.

Played with Jetphoto, its nice. Although I am not able to find options to change some of the stuff like , top image , name of the albums etc. I guess i need to do digg in more.

I'm confused... why not use Gallery? If its because of the lack of iPhoto support, this can be fixed with a simple plugin... it works perfectly for me.

Well iphoto plugin is not a problem with gallery. But, the problem is the layout and slideshow feature. I do not like that Java applet launching for slideshow and it does not work well with all browsers.

Gallery has lots of feature , but layout is not cachy and for slideshow I would like to have some "eye candy".
