Flash Image Gallery is a great application to publish your photos, it has many features and effects to your photos, but use it more easily than other gallery scripts just as Gallery, 4images … only thing you must do which is embed it to your website.
In my opinion it is divided into 2 main types: Flash Image Owner Hosted Gallery (the author upload their photos to their hosting) and Flash Image Services Hosted Gallery (e.g: images from Flickr, Picasa..) that name is set by me, so it may be different if you want.
Flash Image Services Hosted Gallery
There are many photo sharing services on the internet but only 2 services share and store images more users which is Flickr and Picasa, of course I will refer to 2 for this service.
A photogallery made in Flex2/AS3 using Flickr API. This application let users to browse your flickr pictures, see your sets, tags and notes. It’s also implemented the flickr authentication for flickr registered user. In this way registered users can also add comments, tags (if allowed) to your images.
The Flash XML Gallery
offers a flexible solution for integration of multiple albums into one single gallery. The script can integrate popular photo sharing communities such as Flickr and Picasa. You can use a wide range of transition effects.
The images can be read from RSS or added manually. To add the images you have to upload them to the specified directory and define them in the XML-file.

Polaroid Gallery is a free, opensource flash gallery developed by myself, Christopher Einarsrud, in the year of 2006.
I was originally going to use this for my online portfolio, but I ended up going for something completely different.
I thought that it might come in handy for someone else, so I decided to release it here. After all, I did put some work into it and it would be a pity to see it all go to waste…
