I'm looking for an online photo album solution that can dynamically resize and layout photos in "pages" based on a few rules. Does something like this exist?

This is a little tricky to explain, but here goes. I want to host some photos in a different way than the typical grid view of clickable thumbnails where every photo is treated the same. I'd like the layout to be on pages (where each page can have one or multiple photos), and the user can page through the album much like a real photo album. The layout of these pages should be dynamic and somewhat intelligent. For example, a page with one portrait-oriented photo (labeled PP) and two landscape-oriented photos (labeled L1L & L2L) would have the following layout:
The software should also resize the images to align things. In the above example, the height of PP would match the sum of the heights of L1L & L2L (also taking padding and margins into consideration, but I digress).
Photos should also be given a ranking of how important it is. Photos with the highest ranking would get a page for itself (full size), while photos with a small ranking would be resized much smaller and share a page with other images.
So my question is, does something like this already exist?
