Projects / Ansel


Ansel is a picture gallery for web sites. It is a high quality, information-rich photo gallery, designed to handle large numbers of images and albums. It stores all its images in a database, making it both fast and flexible. Ansel is similar in spirit to Shutterfly and Yahoo pictures, but does not place restrictions on image size.
