Kyrise.COM, is our (Nguyen Family: Able, Mary, Elise, & Kyra) private photo gallery. It took me a while deciding which framework to use:
• Gallery, or
• code something of my own.
Gallery was my choice, and it’ll probably will be for future photo galleries as well. Why? Too lazy to code something of my own… if money wasn’t coming out of it, I don’t have the time for that.
4images was ugly (even with a theme over it, the admin section was the same) and hard to setup… I couldn’t get the darn thing to auto thumbnail the uploaded images.
Coppermine was my last choice, and even though they have been around for as long as I could remember. I couldn’t even consider them because the gallery looks too much like phpBB forums.
Save yourself the headache… go with Gallery.
Oh, BTW, if you are family, a relative, or a close friend and want access (& maybe even share some of your photos) to Kyrise.COM… visit the site then register. I’ll approve the registration once I get the email.
