Piwigo is a free and open-source web-based system, built by an active community of users and developers. Freely available extensions make Piwigo easily customizable. It is notable as a system with many features.
- Add Photos
Photos can be added via a web form, with an FTP client software, with digiKam, Shotwell, Lightroom, iPhoto (Mac users), Aperture (Mac users) or mobile applications for iPhone/iPad and Android
- Multiple size
Each photo is available in 9 sizes, from XXS to XXL, for improved compatibility with various screen resolutions (from smartphones to HDTVs)
Piwigo can automatically add a watermark on all photos, to protect photos against unwanted copy.
Each image is bound to one or more albums. Albums are hierarchical and there is no limit in depth.
An administrator describes photos with tags, then visitors can browse photos by tags or multiple related tags, for example "night + Paris + John".
Extracted from EXIF metadata, Piwigo knows the date of each photo and is able to display photos for a given day, month or year.
The appearance of the photo gallery is defined by the theme. There are various themes provided by the project community.
Plugins expand capabilities of Piwigo. Example of plugins: YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Google Maps or displaying photos in a Lightbox.
- Access control
Access control is handled by the user manager, restricting and granting varying levels of access to photos and albums.
- Notification system
Users can be alerted of changes and updates through RSS feeds, E-mail or sharing on social networks Twitter, Facebook or Google+.
With the use of freely available extensions, Piwigo may also be used to handle videos.... More Info »
