Hi is there any FREE software I can install on my server running Linux, so I can give account access to certain people to be able to upload PICTURES onto my server?
I would like it set up so when they log on in the log in screen they can click the browse button and select the picture. etc... Is this possible? Thank you for your time.

Not quite sure I follow what you are shooting at, if it is just to set up a image gallery you can install Coppermine Photo Gallery which is a free download and quite easy to install. It allows user accounts and priveledges.

Not sure thats what you are talking about.... :tazz:

Yeah, thenotch has something

You could also run a webserver and just have them use FTP.

Yeah I would rather it be like photobucket, or something where they can just upload from the site.

I'd set up a webserver in that case and install Coppermine.
You'll need Apache, GD 2.x or ImageMagick, and PHP 4 as a minimum on resources...

IF I wanted to do it through FTP, is there free software easy to control, for Linux?

Dude you've got to be more specific.

Why dont you google.com/linux and check out http://freshmeat.net/ .

Apache, Imagemagick, and php aren't difficult to setup, if that's what you're worried about.
