To answer a question about if thumbnails can be extracted from a database, it depends on the format. Is it an jpg file or something like that?

I don't know what you expect. I use Piwigo for a lot of time now, with

like any software it have syntax guidelines. I can use "?" in file names 
(linux), when Windows wont like them... nor piwigo. use "detox" and voilà

the problem is syncing metadata to/from web/local. It's not possible to 
send or receive full image files only to sync metadata, when moving xml 
files is easy and cheap. This do not prevent writing also to the images, 
as I always do
