here's your layout:

you can use convert to crop and resize images to a standard size.
it should be a simple matter to write a script to to generate the html from a directory full of images.
... this page has a photo-album generator, which is oldish and probably overkill. Adapt it for the above layout. But note: non-free: the author won't let you distribute your modification, and wants you to hand it over thanks.

Googling for "photo gallery generator" produces a raft of freeware (note - freeware is non-free)... for eg:

Cant suggest any, I go the custom-script approach myself.

Thinking about this some more... I checked Ubuntu's repos and discovered no end of html photo gallery/album software... scripts whathaveyou. You should check out the slackware packages for similar.
