Thanks all, appreciated.

I glanced at Picasa  and from initial inspection thought this was a cloud
based solution - so I'll now go back and actually read some of the
background and see what it can do as a client based piece of software.

Ian.

"In response to a post on the Ubuntu UK Loco mailing list today, I
thought the perfect way to produce a cross-platform, stable web
server… would be to create a QEMU bootable image of Tiny Core."

Cross-platform stable web-server is surely "your filesystem".

Far easier for someone to double click an html file in a folder which
references a images in subdirectories on the USB disk rather than
spinning up a VM?

i.e. the requirement to take the photos to someones house to show them
should surely just mean taking the photos in a presentable way, not
taking an entire (virtual) machine? I suspect this may be
over-engineering it.

Most photo apps have an export function to spit the photos out in some
way. Some can even spit photos out in a static html gallery on disk.

For example Picasa can spit the images out:-

In fact Picasa would probably do everything the OP wants.

Cheers,
Al.
