Well, since somebody mentioned dot-net, I think I'm entitled to say  
that Apple's iWeb does the above ;-)

Personally, though, I use gallery2 for most purposes. It has a Java  
app that you can use to upload hundreds of images at once. Well, as  
"at once" as your upload bandwidth allows.

The setup is really simple. A lot of open-source apps nowadays come  
with "installers" that ask you about the database etc. Gallery2 does  
that, too.

I don't see why anybody on this mailing-list should be incapable of  
mastering this task.

You just upload the unpacked gallery2 directory to your webspace,  
create a db and a corresponding user with phpmyadmin and enter those  
details into gallery2's installer.
