I was searching around the 'net for a simple asp.net image gallery to use on the upcoming flying club website and stumbled across a blog post by Bertrand Le Roy. The image gallery that he presents here was originally made by Dimitry Robsman but has been enhanced in a number of ways. Unfortunately, the gallery might be just a number too simple for use on the page I'm creating, but it could almost certainly be used on my own personal homepage where I sometimes have the need to present simple image galleries of family events etc.

It's really neat. All it consists of is an ashx file and a dll. Dump the ashx file in the directory containing your images (or subdirectories of images) and the dll (which is used for extracting metadata) in the bin folder and you're all set. You can even add the gallery as a control to an existing page if you prefer that. There's a CSS file as well which you can customise to your liking.

The code is released as shared source so feel free to make changes and customise it to your needs. If you're looking for a no bells and whistles image gallery written in C#/ASP.NET, this one might be for you.
