There are lots of great online photo sharing sites such as Flickr and Zooomr, but it is kind of nice to have the pictures on one’s own server. In the past I have been using Gallery 2, Coppermine and other types of galleries. They are all very competent but lacks one essential thing – simplicity, while being elegant at the same time. This is where Zen Photo comes in.
Zen photo is very simple, stylish and fresh, but it still has all features that one would ever need. Support for themes, comments, spam fighting, RSS feeds and other things are of course supported. There are also plugins available for integration with WordPress, which we all love.
There is one thing that needs to be done though, and that is to somehow make it easy to upload images from the mobile phone to the site. The fastest way would probably be to email everyting to an account and use a script to fetch all images and add them to the site. I will definitely look into that.
