Yes, the Gimp is on a par with all the name-brand ones, and works on several platforms, including Unix and Linux.

The Windows version is here.

Warning: It's in two parts.


IrfanView, while not as well-featured, does a lot of things very well.

A relative newcomer, Oriens Enhancer GOLD, is midway between them in features, as is Pixia.

Lots of ways:

  • There are many stand-alone packages, several of which are free, which will take the images in a folder, create thumbnails and HTML for you to put on your site. There are so many, the best way to find one that suits you is to do a search with your favorite search engine and try a few out.





  • Most current big-name image-editing software can create thumbnails and code for a gallery. A free package that many people use for this is IrfanView.


  • If your site has PHP you may want to try a free script package: Gallery, Coppermine, or DAlbum. The first two offer a good degree of customization, and the last has a distinct, simple interface.




  • It is also possible to use a Blog engine, such as Movable Type to create a photoblog.

A good idea is to look at example or two from all of these, try them out if there is a free version, and decide which one(s) meets your needs.

Update:


Suttonian See Profile found this very complete list of free software: Web Photo Galleries

Ever wondered exactly what color was in that picture or graphic? Not sure you are seeing the correct color on your monitor? Download ColorCop, a super easy and great tool for identifying the RGB values as well as Hex values for any color you hover the dropper over :)
