Came across this CodePlex project while searching for something else and thought you might be itnerested in it: NotesForGallery: ASP.NET AJAX Photo Gallery Control. Looks interesting.

This is not the only way to accomplish this though.
It seems to me that designing a photo album is pretty simple though.

The first step I would do create a class that represents a "Photo" which has a url to the photo (or the actual binary data for the photo), the description for the photo, the title for the photo.

I would then create a container for this class (a "photo album" is just a "container of photos" if you think about this). This container could be a generic List<T>: a List of Photos. You would populate this list by instantiating a bunch of Photo classes based on the underlying data source for the photos. This underlying data source could be anything. It really depends on where/how you are storing your images etc.

Then the last thing that you would need to do is display these photos. You could use a GridView, a Repeater, or you could create your own Templated Control for displaying the data. You could even add Light Box or something to make things pretty.

This project might be a good "project idea" for the thread listing project ideas.
The system could include way to "share albums" with other "members" of the system etc...
Would be a neat way to learn/practice ASP.NET :)

There has to be a better way of handling the "I need a project idea" commonly asked question.
I've never seen so many "project requests" as I have here in my online life!
