Yes, this is possible. Quite easy, actually. The hard part is getting
those other people to actually use it.

True, but I think that is understandable for this software - it is
incredibly comprehensive web photo gallery software, with multi-album
capability, online printing, watermarking, .... I could go on. It has a
lot of stuff in it. After getting it installed, it just works. There are
occasional security updates (security problems tend to affect your gallery
only, and not ther rest of the server) and occasional feature updates.
