I was on a mission to find a decent gallery script to post to this blog having the ability to showcase some photos.. After countless visits to websites and finding most galleries where flash or JS requiring multiple file uploads, I came across this generator site called GalleryHosted…

WOW is all I can say.. Totally free to the user, generates codes, slideshows, and even allows for downloading of complete albums..What a great tool for folks to have in their arsenal. As a photographer this gives you multiple features and abilities to share online with others. Think about the possibilities offered as graduation photos crop up, Sporting events, Weddings etc.. record the entire event. load your images and viola.. the recieving party can download an entire event album..no more having to create DVD’s/CD’s unless wanted.

GalleryHosted is a different and new kind of image hosting platform. Unlike regular image hosting websites, it gives the opportunity to users to upload and share complete & browsable pictures gallery. The main keyword being “browsable”.

Here, the comfort of browsing into a gallery have been fully optimized. Thumbnails are displyed to give a preview of the pictures. With our photo preload system, the user never experiences annoying reloading pages. A Grid View option presents all previews of the pictures. And a slidshow of the gallery can even be played.

But one of the most interesting option of GalleryHosted is that users can “Download” a complete uploaded gallery without any waiting time. And unlike most file sharing services, no premium account is required. In the sharing code given after upload, the uploader can even choose to display the “Download” button into the forum or website it will be posted in. A terrific option for people wishing to share galleries very easily.

Uploading a gallery is childish. No need to pick picture by picture. The user can select several pictures at once, and start uploading. The thumbnails size galleries is customizable. And a name can even be given to a gallery. A bulk URL-upload option is also available.

Of course, to track, organize and edit their galleries, our users can sign up for a free account. The edition are made easy.

Also, GalleryHosted has no limit: No storage limit, no period limit and no bandwidth limit. Cherck ’em out folks.. I use them for my Gallery Slideshows.. Link to site is on right column…
