Over the last few weeks I've been making changes to my pictures page to try and automate it all a bit. I've written my own set of scripts to manage a sort of XML database of all the sets of pictures. From this set of information I can then publish the index to all my sets of pictures in several (currently four) different flavours. At the moment I've got a text only page, a text and pictures page, and a pictures only, as well as the seemingly obligatory RSS feed. Like most people I have wondered what the whole fuss over XML was about at various times. Stuff like this though makes it seem worthwhile. I have a simple form to fill in every time I upload a new set of pictures, and then after that all of the different indices are rebuilt automatically. Very satisfying.
If you used php, you could get it to upload the images, generate thumbnails and use a db like the one I set up for Baron at www.teamlee.co.uk
Of course, you don't like php, do you?

Is it because it's not a Vegetarian programming language?
