While abroad, I built a site to share high-def photos of my travels with family and friends back home. It's got admin controls for photos and comments, and was capable of reading the camera's settings for each photo, to share exactly how the shot was achieved.
The system can read and tag images with information like exposure settings, lenses, and locations.
Photos are automatically released according to a date that a user chooses.
Administrators can view and manage photos in their collections.
