    Hello

    I have a gallery i use for my photos it's a single file(php) and it uses NO database. it looks on the images in a folder, reads EXIF data etc and makes thumbnail/cache until the original image is called. what i want to add to this gallery is the function to search, if you feel you can do this please send me a PM.

    I'm assuming you want to be able to search via EXIF data, filename and perhaps other criteria. I stronly suggest creating a database to store this information in, as it would wastly improve speed and customization-capabilities.

    what PoPSiCLe said. Alternatively you can cache your EXIF data into a text file, but the effort required would be silly compared to installing a DB

    Well, if you can fix this buy using MySQL please do send me a PM. I was supposed to post is in buy and sell section but i noticed to late i put ut in the wrong place, so if you got the knowhow pelase send me a PM as i said and i will ofcourse pay for it. Currently as i said there is no database but if you want to create one please go ahead BUT, i want the same functions as the script currently has wich is that i just have to upload the images into the server folder and i dont have to do anything else than just that for it to created thumbs and so on.
