AJAX ASP Photo Gallery

Ajax Photo Gallery is a powerful, easy to customize and install ASP/ASP.NET based photo album software, created for people who want their pictures up and running in 5 minutes, without having to mess with databases, complex configuration options or features that they don’t really need or want.

It uses AJAX technology, there000fore, it is very fast and responsive (how can people use those galleries where you have to load the entire page every time you want to jump to the next picture?)
[new on version 2.0: the gallery is now even faster since it preloads in the background the following picture making it much faster to navigate]

You also don’t need to worry about folder hierarchy. The software reads your filesystem folders and subfolders, to create a fast and responsive javascript tree with that structure.

You can also enjoy many other features (see them all), like EXIF data reader, user comments, admin comments, smart picture pre-loading and caching, zip and download functionality, dynamic resizing, squared thumbnails (all those thumbnails are generated at real time by ASP.NET, and they also can be hard cached on disk, so don’t worry about performance)

Is better you see it in action, so have a look at the demo on a separate window, or in a 980px layerembedded in this page. More than that, if you think it can fit you, give it a try.

“If you don’t love it, you will get a full refund, no questions asked.”
