I have a server machine and i want to serve images out of it. So  I should be able to see images by entering the url
How would i do this? Let's say that my image is in C: drive. How do i configure ports for this, or do i need to?
So far, it looks to me that Apache Http Server is running and serving Svn already on my server machine.

    Install some gallery software on your webserver's particular directory?

    No, actually you shouldn't be able to see images that way.  Like @gheist said, install some gallery software that will put the images into HTML or PHP pages.  Apache is a web server and it serves up HTML pages.  Although you can link to images and see them, it will not 'automatically' bring up images like it does HTML pages.
