My home network design is:
1. Linux (Debian) NAS server with following active roles:
- Samba, Plex Media Server, Transmission, FTP, SSH, Apache, MySQL
2. 3 PC (Windows 8)
3. 1 Media Player (Windows 7) + Plex Media Center
4. 1 Linux based Media Player with DVD interface (without browser)

My pictures are stored on Linux NAS server on folder, shared read only for internal clients.

My needs are:
I want to install an web gallery software to provide access to my pictures for my distant family.
I don't want to duplicate my pictures for publishing to Gallery.
I want to keep my original pictures read only and not store thumbnails and resized pictures to original pictures folder.
(Original picture folder is used by my linux media player)

I want to know if Gallery is the right solution for me?
Thank you in advance and sorry for my poor English.

Gallery2 would be better with its symbolic link feature.
