If you have shell access and either image magick or magickimage, use 

Shalbum is FAST, has a lot of greate features, and zips through image files.

Technically, what it does is take a directory full of images, and a 
bunch of parms, and creates 2 new versions of each image(a thumbnail and 
a fullsize), places them all in a new set of directories, and creates a 
simple set of HTML pages to navigate between them as a photo gallery.

But I find it easy to use for practically anytime I need to create a 
couple hundred thumbnails and I don't want to have to deal with a PHP 
script timing out(if run over the web) or any other issues.
