PhotoBrowser is a small PHP application for sharing and displaying pictures to your friends on the web with ease.
The images that are displayed in the browser are generated from the originals and adapted to the user requirement in terms of size. The PhotoBrowser application is a very tiny application that is using the GD library for image creation.

I've also created a complete installer, containing a webserver (Apache 2), PHP (5.04) and the latest version of PhotoBrowser, for those who have little knowledge of PHP. The installer contains a wizard for entering the setup details. Download and check it out!



The demo of the application consists of 3 Flash presentations that is aiming to present the application.

  1. My Documents setup (just to show the images in the original format)
  2. Presentation of application 
  3. Sharing of  images to friends
