    Photo Gallery Website

    Hi all !
    I'm in need to build photo gallery website to showcase my portfolio.
    My requirements are minimal : it must be simple, clear design centered on pictures.
    For the moment I'm looking at X3 Photo Gallery but I'd prefer
    to work locally and upload when needed.
    Any help / advice from your own experience will be very appreciated.
    Thanks in advance,
    Igor.

    Hi Iga, I donít know X3 and donít know what you mean with your Ďbutí about it. But I am quite happy with Zenfolio and have no problems with uploading, locally or unlocally (?). My criteria for choosing were a minimal amount of decency and calmness as well as esthetic in the lay-out of the site, in the sense that it doesnít look like a buy/sell magazine of oldtimers or real estate properties. So Flickr and 500px fell out of my selection, as well as Picasa which is Google

    Thanks Otto !
    With X3 you need to install it on your server first. I'd prefer to build whole thing at my computer and then upload it.
    Please, let me know what plan of Zenfolio you are using ?
    Thanks,
    Igor.

    Oh I don’t build in advance. The first time I started I have chosen a general lay-out, background colors, styles and so on in zenfolio. Then you can make galleries with certain themes and I add my photo’s every time I have something new in the diverse themes

    Take a look at Squarespace. It's easy to use and has templates that can be customized.
