IDS (Image Display System) is a CGI written in Perl that interactively generates a photo album website. All you need to provide are the images and (optionally) text descriptions. As you add new pictures, they will appear automatically. Each image will be displayed with information such as image type, file size, image size, and date uploaded. If EXIF information is embedded in the image (shutter speed, aperture, focal length, etc.), it will be displayed.

It will create thumbnail images for JPEG, PNG, TIFF, and GIF images. It can be configured to display icons for any other type of file.

IDS uses HTML template sets called "themes." This allows you and, optionally, your visitors, to change the look of your site on the fly. You can create your own themes.

Visitors to your site can easily browse photos, leave comments, and order prints of your photos through Shutterfly if you choose to allow them to do so. Visitors can view IDS' controls in the language of their choice. Chinese, Deutsch, English, Español, Français, Italiano, Japanese, Nederlands, Slovak, and Swedish language files are included, and it is easy to add others.

Developers are always welcome. Please register at IDS' project site and sign up for the ids-devel listserv.
