Pictor is a simple web application for browsing your pictures in a
in a filesystem (without a complicated database schema).  Pictures
are organized in filesystem directories of any depth.  Albums are
directories that contain pictures.  Thumbnails are generated and
cached as necessary, and images are dynamically resized on the fly.
Pictor is useful as for low-traffic browsing of your pictures on
a local webserver, but is not necessarily recommended for high
traffic picture sharing, as Pictor's dynamic image scaling can
be cpu-intensive.
