Miri Infotech is launching a product which will configure and publish Coppermine, to produce free implementations of distributed or otherwise scalable and high availability which is embedded pre-configured tool and ready-to-launch AMI on Amazon EC2 that contains MySQL and PHP.

Not only this but it is "feature-rich", including password-protected albums and foreign language localization, and often compared to the Gallery Project. Organize your photos, create thumbnails, add metadata and search, and publish your photos.

 

If we talk about its features then the list would get longer and longer as it has so many out of the box things in it which helps all of its users to use it.

Its high level of flexibility and organized nature makes it the most popular software application to be used by most of the people.

Features

Let us now discuss its features in some brief and their associated roles which they bring out.

They are as follows:

  • Arrangement of pictures in categories and albums;
  • Picture information stored in database;
  • Users can upload pictures with web interface or ftp (and admin can batch-add to database);
  • Full multimedia support
  • Creation of thumbnails and intermediate size pics
  • Search feature
  • Last added

  • Integration of user management with various bbs (like phpBB, YaBB SE, SMF, Invisionboard, vbulletin)
  • Caption, title, description and user defined fields for each picture (searchable)
  • Easy install
  • Multi-lingual

If we talk more about Coppermine, one can say and understand that the “gallery” which is the main part can be private, accessible to registered users only, and/or open to all visitors to your site.  Users, if permitted, can upload pictures with their web browser (thumbnail and intermediate sized images are created on the fly during the upload stage), rate pictures, add comments and even send e-cards.

 

Image files are stored in albums and albums can be grouped into categories, which in turn, can be further grouped under parent categories. The script supports multiple users and provides the administrator of the website with tools to manage which user groups can or cannot have personal albums, send ecards, or add comments.

Coppermine has an optional user selectable theme system with a number of themes pre-installed. It also supports the use of multiple languages and contains it's own language library.
