Photo Gallery System using Django in Python

This project is entitled Photo Gallery System. This is a web-based application developed in Python and Django Framework. This project is an online platform that allows users to upload and store their images. Users can download the exact quality and size of the image as the one that they uploaded. It has a simple user interface using the Bootstrap v5 Framework and jQuery Library for some other functionalities to give the users a better experience while using the project. The application also consists of user-friendly features and functionalities.

About the Photo Gallery System

I developed this project using the following:

  • Python
  • Django
  • SQLite3
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • jQuery
  • Ajax
  • Django-QR-Code Library
  • Pillow Library
  • Fontawesome
  • Bootstrap v5

This Photo Gallery System Project is accessible to anyone. The system requires the user to register or to create their site credentials with some basic information. After they successfully registered, the users can simply log in to the site by logging in with their username and password. The system displays the total count of uploaded images of the user and the total items of the images that are moved into the trash. User can upload their images by clicking the upload link located at the navigation bar at the top of the screen. The upload form is being shown using a popup or modal. Uploaded images are listed on the Gallery pages and each of these has options on whether the user wants to move the image to trash or download a copy of the images. On the Trash Page, the page will display all the images that are moved to the trash and each image can be restored or permanently deleted by the user. The system also resizes the images for the thumbnails to optimize the page loads. It will only optimize the images if the image is greater than 640px x 480 px resolution.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. After downloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.

Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.


1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
