    Never used one, but Zend.com has a tutorial / code spotlight on the subject, which seems interesting. Check it out and give us some feedback.




    Cheers.

    its is nice, but it has more than i want actually. it's for a volunteer site that can't really afford to buy a license for it either.

    Gallery is a fine piece of code. I can't think of anything you could need that it doesn't have, really.

    PhotoPost is the best gallery I've run across so far. It's MySQL based, and packed with tons of features (user registration, user uploads, batch uploads, auto thumbnailing, etc). "Gallery" is no match for this one..

    I second the vote for Gallery. It's great. It has everything from users w/ differing permissions, a nifty java applet to allow you to easily upload your photos, basic BB functionality, photo resizer, links to get your photos printed, phpNuke hooks, and more. It's really quite nice (and free!)

    Um, "gallery" has most of those features (and more)and is free. Photopost is not. Gallery easily matches up. Then only real advantage is that photopost integrates with vbulletin if you use it. (I don't)

    Cost of photopost $119 + $30/year for updates

    Cost of gallery $0

    Tomorrow I am going to try and install gallery for the first time. Since I have never even played with PHP before, I think it'll be an interesting experience.

    I am curious as to how the uploads work on a php script, since my host (and lots of other hosts as well)disabled php uploads.
    I had a php upload script and I found out it didn't work anymore, even though it required a password. It took two days to find a suitable solution. I ended up with a php authenticated html page that calls a cgi script to do that actual uploading.
    I would use a gallery script if I was sure it was secure, but most of my users don't properly size the pics, and I would just have to go in and resize them anyway.
    If anyone uses a php gallery script, post back if the upload works or not. If it doesn't, it may be your host.

    Try PhotoGal for your photo gallery needs. I think that you will find it very extensible and configurable to your individual needs. It is template driven and come with full documentation.

    Make sure you have chmod'd the netpmb executable files to "777". They must be executable or you'll have problems.

    Not really, wert, I don't think you've really taken the time to compare the
    two as I have:

    1) Gallery does not have an internal user registration system. All users
    are anonymous
    unless the admin manually creates users. That really bites for community
    sites, IMO.
    2) Gallery has no search function, photopost has a fulltext search and a
    keyword linking
    system to find similar photos.
    3) No watermarking in Gallery
    4) No zip uploads in Gallery
    5) No categories or subcats, just one level of "albums" in Gallery
    6) No ratings in Gallery
    7) Gallery can't work with any forums
    8) Photopost has about 80 options in the admin interface
    9) Photopost supports usergroups and view, diskspace, and file size
    limitations set
    independently for each group
    10) Photopost has an upload approval queue so you can deny inappropriate
    uploads.
    11) Photopost has greetings cards

    Well, actually, I *have* tested photopost *in admin mode* at a friends site and run a very small "gallery".

    can anyone reccommend a script to be used for photo galleries?
    Now, photopost does have a ton of features, but for the average person just wanting a gallery and not needing to integrate with other scripts would be well served to at least try "gallery".

    I think for a lot of hobbyists and small site webmasters out there, this is a compelling factor.

    Cost of photopost $119 + $30/year for updates

    Cost of gallery $0

    1) Gallery does not have an internal user registration system. All users
    are anonymous
    unless the admin manually creates users. That really bites for community
    But remember, not everyone is running a community. Some just want to put up a gallery and not necessarily have it take over their site.

    2) Gallery has no search function, photopost has a fulltext search and a
    keyword linking
    system to find similar photos.
    Well, the version I use has a search function. It's optional and can be toggled on/off by the admin.

    3) No watermarking in Gallery.
    coming in gallery 2.0

    4) No zip uploads in Gallery
    Um, gallery has supported this for a while

    5) No categories or subcats, just one level of "albums" in Gallery
    Once again, gallery supports "nesting" albums within albums.

    6) No ratings in Gallery
    Not exactly, but you can let your users leave comments and it does show you how many times each photo has been viewed. For those who want true ratings for gallery, you can get it at the following link as an add-on *free of course* http://gallery.menalto.com/modules.p...ibuted%20Code&

    7) Gallery can't work with any forums
    Wrong! Currently Gallery 1.3 supports interfacing with phpBB 2.0, and also supports integration with CMS system like XOOPS, phpWebsite, Geeklog, and Nuke.

    8) Photopost has about 80 options in the admin interface
    The only options that count are the ones people actually use! Don't get sucked into loving "feature-itis"!

    9) Photopost supports usergroups and view, diskspace, and file size
    limitations set
    independently for each group
    Now that *is* a nice feature. Not much use for those who upload their own pics and don't use groups.

    10) Photopost has an upload approval queue so you can deny inappropriate
    uploads.
    Great Feature! If I actually let untrusted people upload to my gallery and had the time to "moderate" all the pictures, then I would want this too!

    11) Photopost has greetings cards
    Erm, is it a gallery or a greeting card program? Anways, Gallery seamlessley integrates with a really fine *free* greeting card script called "vCard lite". For those interested, you can find it here. http://www.belchiorfoundry.com/


    Am I somehow saying that gallery is someone "better" or "as good as" photopost? Absolutely not! I'm just saying that gallery will give you 80%-90% of the functionality of photopost with none of the cost. And as such, it can work out really nice for folks who don't want to pay for all the bells and whistles of photopost or who perhaps don't need to integrate with vBulletin.

    So to wrap up, if you're using vBulletin, need a gallery to integrate with it and don't mind throwing down $119, then go with photopost.

    If you're a hobbyist or run a small site, then give "gallery" a try. http://gallery.menalto.com It's free, so you have nothing to lose...

    I know this is a (rather) old topic, I found it while looking for posts on the photo gallery idea. This thread doesn't really answer my question (which is the same as the first posters') since Gallery refuses to run when PHP safe mode is on. PhotoPost looks cool, but 100+ $ for a script I will use to publish a few galleries without using any off the more advanced functions is a it too much. I wonder if there are alternatives people know about that haven't been posted here. Please do if you know a great script.

    Thanks in advance!
