Piwigo is a very high performance, very versatile gallery program. It offers a good selection of attractive themes. It also offers good technical support from it's staff and from fellow users.

I looked at all the photo servers and Piwigo remained. Easy to use and full of practical extensions. Highly recommended!
I've used Piwigo for my personal website on a Raspberry Pi for years. It is wonderful open source software. It allows family and friends to view our pictures and saves shipping them around by email. Keep up the good work team!
I discovered this photo presentation application more than 3 years ago while preparing my new website hosted by Infomaniak in Geneva, Switzerland: Piwigo was proposed as an expert and easy-to-use application for distributing photo albums all over the place. I'm Swiss, I live in Switzerland and I've been an amateur photographer since I was a teenager. I mainly take photos when I'm travelling around the world, particularly in Europe in recent years, since I'm retired and I travel with a relatively compact and very comfortable motorhome. That's why I've called my site 'Images de Voyages': they're listed by year and by place visited. I use Piwigo both as a public gallery for my travel photos and as a means of archiving the wealth of images I produce every year (perhaps too many according to some!?!). Piwigo offers both a means of getting an immediate and complete view of a photographer's experience and a fantastic opportunity to share with the whole world (?) the emotions I feel when I take a photo. Piwigo is a marvellous tool, with no limits except perhaps a few technical faults, but all this can be improved thanks to the sharing on the user forum and the wisdom of the Piwigo team.
