  2. Hey Sandra,

    if you want a gallery with pictures on your webspace go for NextGEN Gallery .. uses shortcodes for pictures, galleries and album .. comes with different jQuery Galleries support like Lightbox and so on plus interface to integrate others .. SWF image rotator .. NextGEN SmoothGallery similar to Featured Content Gallery but without all the problems ;-) .. let me know if you need something with Flickr or WP internal support

  4. The NextGEN Gallery is really very nice, I may use this for my needs. Thanks for the thumbs up.

    I was wondering looking for feedback, about DEVKICKs Galleria on Thematic version 0.9?
    It is awesome, but this install seems confusing ~

  5. Hey .. you need to differentiate between the Galleries that are doing nothing else than providing a nice output with lots of bells and whistles like DEVKICKs Galleria (which is really nice) and a full blown app managing your photos in the database, grouping these into galleries and bundling these into albums, providing descriptions per photo, and ... and ... and ...

    With the first type it's pretty hard to setup a gallery 'cause you have to do everything by your own .. lot of manual work needed.

    The second type eases this work .. photos need to be uploaded, grouped into galleries, write a post or create a page, drop the shortcode .. that's it.

    Knowing NextGEN since its early beginnings I believe that DEVKICKs Galleria can be integrated.

  6. Hi Chris,
    Thanks so much for your feedback. My thoughts exactly, my time allows NextGEN, and this does the job perfectly~
