I'd also consider the use of captions and meaningful image filenames. Another common approach is to implement a tagging system - SE's will be somewhat wary because this could be abused, but it's certainly a way of telling search engines what the content of the image is. Also consider comment/discussion facilities - let visitors provide you with content and ...

For SEO you would like to add ALT attributes to each image. As for the names, it would be better if they describe what is on the image. If thats impossible take tags/category/subcategory and put that into your link. You may end up on making randomized names like: your-key-words-imgID.jpg

It is not possible to retrieve facebook photo data through RSS, you can however use the API which retrieves the data in json format. You just need to know the specific id of the album you want to get the data from. For instance, if I'd wanted to get the photos from this album: ...

You maybe found what you need with Microsoft WebMatrix. Composite C1 (directly available in WebMatrix) is an Open Source heavily customizable CMS in C#, that can allow you to use it as an album application. You can also take a look to Photo Gallery Wall C#, a Silverlight Photo Gallery based on this tutorial (here a demonstration).

One of the simplest options would be the Single File PHP Gallery. Just put it wherever your images are, and you've got a gallery. Sub-directories will be sub-galleries; you get the idea.

I'm not sure about a photo sharing service, but I have an idea of how you can track where your images are embedded with some PHP. You could probably build this in to WordPress somehow as well if you know what you're doing. I believe this could work. In your .htaccess file put a rule something like this: RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ...

Personally, I have good experiences with plUpload, from the guys of TinyMCE. User experience is pretty good, considering my very non-technical user base. If you consider paying, the MCImageManager is (IMO) a good choice (same guys).

Jekyll, with a photo gallery plugin like https://github.com/ggreer/jekyll-gallery-generator Unfortunately, that one doesn't have pagination but you could get round that with subgalleries. Generate everything locally, then just upload the HTML and images to something like S3 or Cachefly.

Generally speaking, you could implement your own shopping cart (pick one of the many available) to allow others to order photos through your own site.

Rather then exporting from Facebook, might it be easier for you -- and provide more long-term control to the client -- to post photos on their own site and then export these to Facebook using RSS Graffiti or some similar service, along with everywhere else?

The application Gallery2 is FOSS and allows for this: http://codex.gallery2.org/Gallery2:Modules:checkout I have not tried Gallery 3 but Gallery 2 will let you pay with PayPal, Google Checkout and other ways.

Indexhibit and Stacey are both static FTP-based CMSes that can be used for simple galleries.

Yes, this can be done. Create your web site, have all of your products listed in a gallery in different categories for your products. You can design this gallery yourself or use WordPress for a little help. Next, create a private separate product page, subdomain, or Magento hosted eCommerce solution with a required log-in / sign-up page to reach the shop. ...

You could give CKFinder a try. It provides a file browser which supports basic copy & paste, file uploading, thumbnails, picture resizing and HTML form integrations. And you can modify it to suit your own needs since it's open-source. I think it is perfect for photo managing. Demo avaliable here. Um... I found a good alternative to CKFinder, it's ...

If the text is too similar, then Google are likely to assume the pages are the same and only list one of them. It won't get you a penalty, but you might want to consider adding a canonical tag back to the main gallery page to make sure they treat that as the priority page to index. As for H1s, they are good for semantic HTML, but there is not much evidence ...

They are somewhat similar: Show pieces of content one at a time Controls for forward and backwards Autoplay feature that can be configured to transition automatically on a timer However, I would draw the following distinctions: Slideshow Primarily for viewing a set of images one at a time. May support a very large number of images. Preloads the next ...

resulting in multiple rel=canonical links on the same page pointing to different galleries That is not allowed. Only one canonical per page. If you use hashbangs, then Google will call the escaped fragment version of the page to your server. It should serve the HTML version of the page with the corresponding gallery. Another solution is to add a ...

This is a good resource explaining what you need to do with either escaped fragments or using the pushState and history API in HTML5 to provide content to search engines. I do want to note that both Google and Bing do crawl javascript via pushState and escaped fragments might possibly be deprecated in the coming months by Google. So to be safe, move over ...

JavaScript has come a long way as far as looks go, here's a few good JQuery UI widgets that'll be easier to use with XML. Oh, and it's free. Oh, and it has MIT/GPL licenses. Oh, and it'll decrease load time / page weight.

It would be helpful to know which gallery you will be using on the frontend. For example if it was Galleria or similar or something different. With that said, I will add some options for you to checkout as well. I find clients really enjoy SlideShowPro Director. It's a commercial product though, is well worth the price. GalleryCMS is a free CMS for ...

If they have a lot of photos using a hosted service like www.smugmug.com could be a nice option. They also allow you to embed galleries on your website, but all the uploading and arranging is done on their website.

You need to put unique page titles at the top of that list. Duplicate titles will kill you. You also need to use the meta description field and populate that if possible the photo description text.

Try Coppermine Photo Gallery: it seems to have all the features you need.

If you know Python/Perl, why don't you just write a script that generates a paginated gallery? That's pretty easy to do. Also, it's pretty easy to find out the revenue model of most free web services. The vast majority of them fall into either a freemium model (99% of users pay nothing, subsidized by the 1% that pay for a premium subscription) or are ...
