Dynalbum is an automatic web photo album generator. The album includes an index page with thumbnails, navigation tools on each album page, and four sizes of each picture. The entire album is dynamically generated from your directory of JPEG's, TIFF's, PNG's, and GIF's when it is accessed. Unlike other photo album generators, it doesn't clutter your files with thumbnails and static html.
Dynalbum generates each page and each scaled image (including thumbnails) dynamically every time it is accessed. This means that there's no need to keep static copies of anything but the original pictures. Unfortunately, it also has a performance penalty especially if your server is slow or overloaded, since the thumbnails and scaled images need to be regenerated every time.
Dynalbum is written in Python. It requires the Apache web server, with mod_python installed. It uses either the Python Imaging Library (PIL) if it is installed, or the ImageMagick convert utiltity otherwise to convert and resize images.
