The Aesir Photo Gallery is up and running. Website isn’t much yet, but photos are the most fun to look at. A website might be useful for prospective members and such to find out a bit about the crew, but hopefully the photos give a bit of an insight into the kinds of fun we get up to
The photo software I chose for the Flash Rovers photo gallery is called back in the day when I was a flash prospective and set up their website with Anton is called Zenphoto. Since then, I’ve noticed Fullarton Venturers and Chloe using it too
It’s great software – very simple, easy to use and less overloaded than Gallery2. Open source of course (all the good stuff is these days!) That said, with every new version they’re implementing new features and some of it feels like bloat to me. I guess it’s hard to say which features should be included (some are really useful, like captchas for comment posting, and drag and drop sorting of albums) while some are less so (like buttons on the frontpage of the admin control panel to refresh EXIF data and reset image hit counters.)
Apparently they’re going to be implementing a plugin system soon, which should alleviate some of the problems and develop some long tail goodness.
