phpInstantGallery :: About
phpInstantGallery is a simple tool for posting customizable, template based html galleries, without a database. The script scans the directory you point it to (via a query string), then stores the list of images it retreives in an array that is POSTED from page to page as the user moves through the gallery. This method of file-list-passing makes phpInstantGallery significantly more efficient than gallery tools that scan image directories each time they generate a page.
The tool displays two types of html pages: a thumbnail and an image page. From a thumbnail page, the user can click on any thumb to go to that thumb's corresponding image page. The image page contains the thumb's larger counterpart, as well as a scroll bar that allows the user to either scroll between the previous/next image pages, or click back to the thumb page.
