AjayDSouza.info Revamped!

Have been meaning to this in quite a while. Had considered shifting over to Flickr to maintain my photo album, but the free service is very limited for me. Additionally I did not want to go in for a paid service because anyway I am spending a lot on hosting of my own.

Hence, I decided to try evaluate the option of using Gallery 2 as the software to power my photo album. I have been using Coppermine for quite a while now mainly because of its bulk import feature.
I had evaluated Gallery but found it rather lacking.

Was stunned that Gallery2 gave me a lot more than I wanted. Especially useful was the Gallery Remote which I have been using to upload all my photos. I have realized however that I need to use the online interface as the remote is still lacking many features.

Anyway, so you can now see AjayDSouza.info in a brand new avataar.
I’m still planning on working on the template to get it done to my liking. However, this will take a while as the software is still new to me.

So do visit my photo gallery. Feedback is welcome. Registrations are not required to view the pictures.

    Hey. It’s fantastic that you found Gallery2 useful. I’ve been using Gallery for years now (my own gallery has over 15 thousand photos and I started trying to organize it in 2002, by which time I already had a few thousand already) and it’s one of the most serious, organized and dedicated projects I’ve seen.

    In a previous comment I mentioned WPG2, which is a bridge between wordpress and G2, allowing shared themes and users between both systems (as well as simplifying the insertion of image blocks and, in a future version, possibly the insertion of pictures themselves into posts and their customization).

    I had actually given Gallery a shot but didn’t like it. Gallery2 blew me away. Hence I stuck to it.

    15000 is a lot of photos :O
    I’ve still got a lot of photos myself to add but its a slow and steady process.

    I haven’t yet given WPG2 a try. Am considering doing so but lets see.
    I am of the idea to keep them seperate. Especially since they are are seperate servers.
