SIDB (Scientific Image Database) is a Web-driven database for (scientific) images. Entry of image meta-data is facilitated through the use of user-definable templates. Users have complete control over who else may see the submitted image and data. SIDB offers various views on the actual image data. Thumbnail plus meta-data can be printed, and multiple thumbnails can be combined in galleries. A freeware version of the Huygens software (http://www.svi.nl) can be used to generate projections from 3-D images (most confocal microscope image formats are supported), as well as MPEG movies, showing the individual layers from the 3-D images.
