ImgSvr is a personal or corporate Embedded Picture Web Server that let's you efficiently browse digital pictures. Contrary to other gallery systems, imgsvr aimed to be an easy and fully dynamic picture server, no static created thumbnails are created.

In a near future, ImgSvr will be a tool for managing, organizing pictures throught the web.

Imgsvr can be directly used on a CDROM, and distributed with all your pictures

Why an other picture web server ?

I didn't want to duplicate the huge amont of picture i had on my computer.

I didn't want to send my private pictures on a remote server

I want to keep track of people that are watching the picture and use the pictures

It is much simpler to use an embedded picture web server than a static gallery, the use is really simple.You have a folder with pictures, then install imgsvr, tell him where your pictures are , then it's done !

No static thumbnail to create, all are created on the fly, with efficient algorithms

Distributed system capability thank's Web service API, Hotplug module
