Photo album/portfolio for front of shop

Hi All,

I'm trying to find a digital photo album software that would be good for the front of a shop. The idea is, the customer can walk in and select the photo album they want, and page through the pictures. Ideally it would be a full screen and not show any other options but the basics needed for selecting photos to view and album. I've been playing around with a couple digital photo managers, but none are good for front of store/limited access. This is all touch screen, so there will be no mouse and keyboard attached, so no worries about people being able to exit full screen mode. I hope this all makes since.

This is a similar thread but it's quite old. Zenphoto or Jalbum look suitable to me.
You could make your own album software using javascript and css.

I can't say for sure since I haven't used it myself, but perhaps mythtv would do the job? There's a photo gallery plugin for it.

I guess the big question is whether you can set it up the way you want, as a stand-alone kiosk browser.

Hi all,

Sorry for such a late reply. I looked into all of them and decided to go with jalbum running on a apache server. Thanks for the replys and the help.
