Coppermine Photo Gallery is a photo gallery software application with multimedia capabilities. It requires PHP, MySQL, and ImageMagick or the GD Graphics Library, and works with most web server software such as Apache.

Coppermine Photo Gallery has interfaces with software packages including e107, Invision Power Board, PcNuke, Joomla!, Mambo, phpBB, PostNuke, PunBB, Simple Machines Forum, vBulletin, Woltlab Burning Board, and YaBB SE.

Coppermine Photo Gallery is "feature-rich", including password-protected albums and foreign language localization, and often compared to the Gallery Project.[1][2][3][4]


Coppermine is open-source software and is licensed under the GNU General Public License.[5] However, according to the project FAQ, users are required to have a "Powered by Coppermine" link to the project's web site, and further, to not ask questions on removing the link on the Coppermine support forums.[6] The compatibility of this requirement with the GPL was discussed in the Coppermine support forum in 2003–2004. The Coppermine team asserts that the "Powered by Coppermine" is legally a copyright notice, which is permitted by the GPL.[7] However, starting with version 1.5.x, Coppermine now concedes the removal of the branding text and link is legal. However they will not provide support to users who remove the footer, even if the footer is added back after the fact.[8]
