Django is quite nice, but you will end up coding for yourself. There  
are some album projects from a few people to borrow ideas from.

Since my server is in my house I never worries about the upload part.  
Wrote a Python script to import new images into the DB by reading  
their meta-data and then some django code to show them. Was not too  
hard, for the CSS and html goop is the annoying part. Making things  
work for IE and Safari is just no fun.
