Photo album and image galleries are becoming a popular feature for websites. Depending on your purpose, you can simply add a photo album to your website as a sub-page, or make your entire website purely a photo album (such as a photographer website).
There are many software (both free and commercial) for building an image gallery or even flash video gallery. If you are a professional photographer need to display your photos to potential clients, then your requirement for the photo gallery software or gallery website would be very different from an amateur who just need to have fun, or someone who just want to share photos with the social community.
Many business owners need a photo gallery for their website because they are selling service or products -- e.g. a photographer would like to demonstrate his previous work online. A real estate website would like to display house for rent or for sale online, etc.
For personal users, there are lots of photo and image sharing sites around which are generally easy to use and you can be up and running in no time. However, many personal website owners also prefer to have a photo gallery on their own website for secuirty and privacy reasons, so that they can display their photos without having to upload the photos to a third part photo sharing website. This is particularly important for webmasters whose photos need to be licensed or protected.Customized Logo
