After experimenting with a blogging CMS in WordPress, a forums CMS in SimpleMachines Forums and MediaWiki for our wiki, the Bear wanted to see what tools were available on the web for displaying photos.
There seem to be a number of open source photo gallery options out there but the one that seemed the most stable with the largest community of developers and contributors was, Gallery.
Gallery offers a lot of nice features like batch photo uploads, rss feeds, photo commenting and ratings, album slideshows, thumbnail auto creation using ImageMagik, and the ability to rearrage the order of your photos and albums. Shortly, the Bear is going to investigate integrations between Gallery and WordPress. Maybe the Bear should look here. But, for now, enjoy the Photos!
