    Galleries

    Hi,

    I want to install a free gallery to my site where lots of people can upload their pictures for everyone to see and discuss.

    I found three options and I was wondering if you could help me decide which one is best.

    4Images Gallery- http://www.4homepages.de/
    Coppermine Photo Gallery- http://coppermine.sourceforge.net/
    Gallery- http://gallery.menalto.com/

    Thanks,
    azra

    http://gallery.menalto.com/ is very popular and is provided as an add-on by many hosting companies.

    However, it may come down to features, and in such instance...I'd suggest that you download and install them locally on your development machine to see which one meets your requirement best.

    Check with your webhost to see if they offer "fantastico". That's where you can
    install a gallery (whichever one's they provide) for free, with the click of a button.
    It installs automatically with all of the MySQL done for you.

    Of your list, I've only used CopperMine.

    With CopperMine, under advanced options for images, the default for rendering
    is "ImageMagick" ... make sure you switch to GD2.X to make it work ... and that's
    assuming you'll be using PHP/MySQL.

    I've used both Menalto and Coppermine. Coppermine is far better in my opinion. Coppermine has a much better user interface and better configuration options than Menalto.
