What is Exhibit Engine?
Exhibit Engine 2 is freeware personal online photo gallery program with professional features, speed and design.
In fancy terms: Exhibit Engine 2.0 is a photo gallery database management system. It stores information of each photo and small details related to it into a database. Actual photo files it keeps on web server filesystem. You can organize the photos freely and EE displays them on a web page, it automatically creates indexes, listing pages and photo pages. The photo upload system works with ftp, using chosen resize application (Imagemagick, Netpbm or GD2) and it does required photo sizes and thumbnails automatically. Everything can be configured to user's needs. The database is written and read in SQL language by EE, and the EE itself runs on PHP programming language.
Digital camera boom has made people aware of their creativity. Wonderful photographs are being taken every second (or 8.5 times a second, depending on your camera) around the world. After spending a while with a digital camera you have plenty of photos you want to share to public and your friends and relatives. You'll need a tool to present them as neatly as possible in internet, securily for selected audiences. How the gallery system works, how the photos are presented and how enjoyably they can be found and browsed is essential to success of your gallery. There are dozens of gallery programs and photo sharing services out there, but nothing comes close to power, professional style and flexibility of Exhibit Engine 2 (EE) on your own web server.
SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Web server with plenty of disk space for photos, MySQL server (4.1 or 5.x recommended, sold separately) and PHP installed (4.1.0 or newer, 5.x recommended), FTP access to localhost and http access in and out. Imagemagick, NETPBM or GD(2) graphics libraries are supported for image resizing.
Exhibit Engine is very reliable and server friendly. EE (from version 1.0 to 2.0) has served 8 million photos without a single problem in http://photography-on-the.net/gallery/ . EE is my pet project which has been going on for several years, and EE 2.0 is result of hard work and planning to make the best even better. So why not just download it a try it out.
