in ASP, i would use the File System Object to  simply walk 
through the directory, grab anything ending in .gif or .jpg, and stuff 
it into some HTML to display it however you want...  the FSO, 
however, will sort based on whatever the server's config is (by date, 
name, whatever)...

otherwise, yeah, you can do a plain text file and walk through it 
that way... hell, the entire site at roselli.org/tour is driven from text 
files that do very much the same thing...
