    I have a bunch of photos (2GB worth) that I need to post online, so that my clients can view and download them. These photos will be updated regularly. What I'd like is software that I can install on my web hosting account that will index a folder of images and then display them small (divide into say, 10 pics a page) and allow viewing or download of the full resolution version, where all I have to do is just drop images into a folder on the server.

    Does something like this exist? Hints, tips, suggestions appreciated!

    Thanks.

    I used that for a few family-only galleries a while back. However, it won't auto-watermark images. I found it to be nice and easily customizable.

    These days, I use Smugmug for most my stuff.

    thanks prowlingtiger, at first glance minishowcase looks to be pretty close to the solution I was looking for. Will also look at smugmug.

    Anybody else?

    Be aware that Smugmug isn't free. The discount code 'Yahoo' gets 50% off, if it's still active, however.
