Mig - "My Image Gallery"

Mig is a photo album / image gallery management system. It is written in PHP and requires nothing but PHP to operate.

Any version of PHP since 3.0.9 should still work, but I would strongly recommend using a supported version, preferably the latest version available.

To use any of the utilities, additional prerequisites might be required



Utilities are included to do things like thumbnail creation, extraction of EXIF headers from JPEG files and so forth. Those tools require Perl and (for thumbnail generation) ImageMagick. You do not need Perl or ImageMagick to use Mig itself.

NOTE: to avoid confusion, let me clarify. To use Mig itself, the gallery program, you need only PHP and a web server. To use mkGallery.pl, the thumbnail program, you need Perl and ImageMagick. Mig is not capable of making thumbnails. You need to use mkGallery.pl, or something else, to make thumbnails. Some people use Photoshop, some use other things. Mig Buddy (by Keith) can also create thumbnails for you.
