I have used Gallery on a couple of sites, one a roll-your-own, one a 
Drupal CMS.

Gallery, http://gallery.menalto.com, provides for multiple image import 
and management via Gallery Remote, multiple galleries, sub-galleries, 
password protected galleries, several other nice features. It's also 
Open Source, download and install.

Drupal has a module, http://drupal.org/project/gallery, for embedding 
Gallery 2 into a Drupal site. Drupal is Open Source, download and install.
