Gthumpy is small collection of scripts for handling images from digital cameras. One script creates thumbnails, one script lets you enter metadata for every picture (date, description, title) in a GUI and an other creates static html files.
The created files don't need a http server or CGI, you can burn a CD/DVD and give this to your friends (which might use windows). You only need a webbrowser to view the created HTML files. It is not tested on win32.
