I've been rather happy with Jalbum, mostly because of the wide range of 
capabilities.  By default, it creates the album on your system...you can 
upload to their servers or your own, at your discretion.  While picassa 
is certainly an answer, and one I use on occassion, I'm far happier 
using my own server(s) or hosting locally on my workstaion than relying 
solely on google's cloud (rock solid though it is...no negative 
connotation about google intended).

You also get what you want out of it...if it's a 'hog', consider if 
you're linking from thumbs to mid-size display and from *that* to 
original hi-res.  That's my basic setup and I haven't had a problem with 
resources on my local workstation (1gb ram, 2,4mhz intel, 0.5TB drive, 
albums of 5K pictures or more, centos 5.3 32bit) or on my servers.
