Gallery is an open source project enabling management and publication of digital photographs and other media through a PHP-enabled web server. Photo manipulation includes automatic thumbnails, resizing, rotation, and flipping, among other things. Albums can be organized hierarchically and individually controlled by administrators or privileged users.
Gallery 3 is the current release of Gallery. It is a complete rewrite of Gallery 2 attempting to be small, intuitive, fast, and easily customizable. Gallery 3.0 was released on October 5, 2010.
Gallery 2 was publicly released on September 13, 2005. Gallery 2.3.1 was a minor release, primarily for supporting PHP 5.3 and was released on Dec 17, 2009. Development of Gallery 2.x has ceased.
Gallery 1 was released in April 2001 and was developed for several years, the last release being 1.5.10 on November 21, 2008. Development of further Gallery 1.x versions might continue in project Jallery, a fork of Gallery 1.6, but does not seem to be under active development.
Gallery has also released a "Gallery Virtual Appliance", which allows users to test the current versions of both Gallery 1 and Gallery 2. in a VMWare installation.
Gallery participated in the Google Summer of Code in 2006, 2007, and 2008. Gallery also participated in OpenUsability's Season of Usability in 2008 and 2009.
In 2003, Gallery was SourceForge's October Project of the Month.
Originally developed using CVS, Gallery switched to SourceForge's Subversion Service on April 27, 2006 and Gallery 3 has been developed entirely using Git on Github.

In 2010, Gallery announced the use of some proprietary Adobe tools to build some components of Gallery 3 in Adobe Flash. Several users expressed great concern that proprietary software was being used in an Open Source project and that Flash components were being included in an Open Source package.
