Setting up Coppermine Photo Gallery

Coppermine Photo Gallery is a PHP photo gallery software. Users can upload pictures with a web browser (thumbnails are created on the fly), rate pictures, add comments and send e-cards. Administrators can manage the galleries and batch add pictures that have been uploaded on the server by FTP. Images are stored in albums and albums can be grouped by categories. The script supports multiple users and each user can have their own albums.
