"Using digiKam's Kipi plugins, you can upload your photos to a variety of popular photo services, including Flickr, Picasaweb, and SmugMug. But what if you want to host your own photo album and still be able to populate it with photos directly from within digiKam? In this case, you might want to try Piwigo, a nifty photo application that has everything you need to host and share your photos on the Web. Piwigo is supremely easy to install and get to grips with, and you can use the vast collection of available extensions and themes to customize the application to fit your specific needs. The best part is, though, that digiKam comes with the Piwigo upload plugin, so you can push your photos directly from the desktop photo management application to the Web album. To enable the plugin, launch digiKam, choose Settings | Configure digiKam, switch to the Kipi Plugins section, and enable the Remote Piwigo Export plugin. Press OK, and restart digiKam."
