I suppose my claim to web imaging fame is that I wrote the web's first photo contest (as far as I know, it was 1999) for the web's leading underwater photography site UnderwaterPhotography.com and a leading stock photo library
Over the years millions of images were uploaded and my apps are still running now. However, they are looking a bit tired so I have rewritten the core functionality from the ground up with the latest technology using only native ASP.NET code and open source components. In other words free stuff - you won't have to spend a penny!
You'll have the bare bones of a photo gallery web app that can be adapted to a library, contest, e-commerce, web blog. Want the source code in a Visual Studio project? Ask Me!
