Ansel is a full featured photo management application. With it, you can create any number of galleries and subgalleries, share galleries among other Horde users or even make them public. You can upload images either one at a time, as a zip archive, upload them via Windows XP's "Publish to Web", or use one of the available export plugins (see below). Once in Ansel, you can browse your images, download originals, view galleries as a slideshow, add comments to images, send an 'ecard' to a friend, and more. You can crop, resize and perform other image maniputlation functions. You can even have Ansel try to detect faces in your photos. Ansel will read and store EXIF data associated with uploaded images and can even auto rotate your images to the proper position if the image contains the proper EXIF properties.

As mentioned above, export plugins are available for both iPhoto and Aperture. Both Ansel versions 1.x and 2.x are supported by these uploaders. All metadata is retained during export, including keywords. You can create new galleries directly from the plugin, as well as browse a gallery's thumbnails so you can what images have been previously uploaded. You may configure multiple Ansel servers as well.

Ansel supports photo and gallery tagging - allowing you to browse your photos by tags just like you were browsing a directory. You can also choose to have certain EXIF tags automatically added to an image on upload. As of Ansel 1.1, geotagging is included. Geotags can be obtained from existing EXIF location data or can be added directly in Ansel via Google Maps integration.

Mulitple gallery themes are available. You can create thumbnails that have rounded corners with shadows, sharp corners with shadows, or even make your thumbnails look like Polaroids! Image viewing can use a lightbox-type overlay on the gallery page, or can be a seperate image view page that can display image attributes, comments and other types of information.

There are multiple ways to organize your photos within galleries. You can create subgalleries to further organize photos and you can also have Ansel automatically display a gallery's photos to you grouped by date.

Ansel supports mulitiple ways to access your photos from outside of Ansel. There are mutlitple types of RSS feeds available, including most recently added images for a particular user, gallery or tag. The ability to embed widgets of your photos into external websites, such as blogs, is also available.

For developers, Ansel also offers an external api that may be accessed via Horde's RPC server or directly through the Horde Registry. There are api methods that make it extremely easy to embed gallery views on your own website.
