We hope it's useful for you. Enjoy!
"And I guess that also explains why Gallery, the photo management software we offer as a one-click install is SO crazy confusing, slow, and horrible! I've looked at its source code, and the one thing I could not describe it as is short.
Which is why for our new EASY one-clicks, I've decided NOT to port Gallery over. Not even a little. INSTEAD, we're giving "zenphoto" (notice the stylishly understated all-lowercase-ness) a try. It doesn't allow you to do all the fancy-shmancy things Gallery does like sell your pictures or order prints, but it is super-simple to use to upload, organize, and view photos!"
We are pleased to announce the second Zenphoto release of this month, version 1.1.5. This version brings a few major improvements and new features, as well as significantly improving the efficiency of Zenphoto. New features include Boolean expressions in searches, which allow you to do such things as "dogs | cats" and combine results for both, Dynamic Albums, which are a way to create an album out of a search phrase (or boolean combination of search terms), a long-requested feature for Multiple administrators with different rights or abilities.
With this release we've also achieved major performance improvements across the board (nearly 4x faster page load times for large albums, benchmark results coming soon), and improvements to the efficiency of the EXIF library and caching, resulting in snappier gallery browsing and an even faster Zenphoto than before.
