We use the IMatch™ digital image management application to organize several thousands of pictures.

[generation process]The Photo Gallery Generator (a.k.a. the "Extended Photo Gallery Creator", jfPGC) is an extension of the photo gallery generator of IMatch. It can produce self-contained photo galleries for websites or off-line media leveraging the organization and description of images contained in the image database. The generator is adjustable. You can use the many gallery templates that are part of IMatch, use the additional templates provided as examples for jfPGC, or create your own.

Using the Photo Gallery Generator is free! We will gratefully receive your donation as a motivation to keep this project going. Any amount is welcome.
