An image gallery is a visually appealing way to showcase and organize a collection of images. Python provides tools and libraries for building image galleries. In this guide, we'll explore how to create a simple Python image gallery and provide sample code to help you get started.


Before you start creating a Python image gallery, ensure you have the following prerequisites:

  • Python installed on your system.
  • Basic knowledge of Python programming.
  • A code editor or IDE for writing and running Python scripts.
  • A collection of images that you want to include in your gallery.

Creating the Image Gallery

To create an image gallery, you can use Python in combination with HTML and CSS. Here's a simple example of how to structure your gallery and display images using Python:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<title>Python Image Gallery</title>
.gallery {
display: grid;
grid-template-columns: repeat(3, 1fr);
grid-gap: 10px;
.gallery img {
width: 100%;
height: auto;
<h1>My Python Image Gallery</h1>
<div class="gallery">
{% for image in images %}
<img src="{{ image }}" alt="{{ image }}">
{% endfor %}

In the above code, we use Jinja2 templating to iterate over a list of image file paths and display them in a grid layout. You can use a Python script to generate the HTML with the image paths dynamically.

Sample Python Script

Here's a sample Python script that generates the HTML for your image gallery. You'll need to adapt this script to your specific use case and provide the list of image file paths:

images = [
# Add more image file paths here
with open("image_gallery.html", "w") as gallery_file:
gallery_file.write("<!DOCTYPE html>\n")
gallery_file.write(" <title>Python Image Gallery</title>\n")
gallery_file.write(" <style>\n")
gallery_file.write(" .gallery {\n")
gallery_file.write(" display: grid;\n")
gallery_file.write(" grid-template-columns: repeat(3, 1fr);\n")
gallery_file.write(" grid-gap: 10px;\n")
gallery_file.write(" }\n")
gallery_file.write(" .gallery img {\n")
gallery_file.write(" width: 100%;\n")
gallery_file.write(" height: auto;\n")
gallery_file.write(" }\n")
gallery_file.write(" </style>\n")
gallery_file.write(" <h1>My Python Image Gallery</h1>\n")
gallery_file.write(" <div class=\"gallery\">\n")
for image in images:
gallery_file.write(f" <img src=\"{image}\" alt=\"{image}\">\n")
gallery_file.write(" </div>\n")


Creating a Python image gallery is a creative way to showcase your image collections. You can further enhance your gallery with additional features such as captions, filters, and user interactions. Experiment with HTML, CSS, and Python to build a gallery that meets your specific needs and preferences.
