Making my own photo gallery. Separate pic folders or just one?
I'm building my own photo gallery for my website, and my initial plan was to have the following folder structure:
/gallery/ (for the main pics, around 600px wide)
/gallery/fullsize/ (for the original, around 1280px wide)
/gallery/thumbnails/ (for the 150px wide thumbnails)
They will be organized in a database.
I have most of it working now, and am working on the layout for the main gallery page, BUT when I went to download all the pics from my old photo gallery (which was a Gallery2 install), I noticed that each album has its own folder. Now I'm second-guessing my album design.
What are the advantages of creating separate folders for the different albums? Is it work modifying my gallery to create subfolders?
