Thanks; I wasn't aware of Jekyll when I posted the question, but your answer looks good. Not marking as the complete answer because there's still no pagination so it's still unwieldy as-is. The generate/upload is good, but this is out of pocket, so it goes on my existing colo machine, where the privacy policy is mine. Thanks, for the best and most useful answer answer so far.

I do not put pictures of other peoples' children into online sharing systems without their prior informed consent. I will hold onto them and share them via password with the few people for whom access is needed. In this case, I used Album because I had it to hand and I gave a login only to my wife and to the bride and they sorted out selecting the worthwhile photos for broader dissemination.

See, that just shows out out-of-date I am on PHP and is another argument for not adding a new runtime for a site I want to set up and then forget about, instead of actively maintaining it. Staying current on PHP would be fine, if it were important to me, but not for this project.

That uses PHP, which I'd like to avoid, as noted, since it's another run-time to manage. When I have had PHP installed, I lock down a number of options, including safe_mode. codex.gallery2.org/Gallery3:Requirements notes that PHP's safe_mode must be disabled -- I'm not willing to run a non-safe_mode PHP app.
