    Hi,

    Has anyone found a good gallery plugin for Sitefinity 3.0?  I would like something where clients could maintain the galleries themselves (upload new images, and possibly manipulate them).

    Requirements:

    Nice Features (not required)

    • Photo Editing online
      (e.g. cropping, rotating)
    • Play, pause, (next, previous & back home a must)
    • Written in C# (instead of VB)
    • Multiple Users
    • Logins for end-users too, or just guest
    • Multiple Galleries under one install
    • Search
    • Keywords
    • Categories
    • Tagging, creating own galleries
    • Disable right-click (so people can’t save images)
    • Ability to send images to people as eCard
    If anyone has any ideas or has found a good solution, I'd love to hear about it

    Thanks a lot!

    Ben

    PS I was the gallery from the TIU site, but it's too basic and I didn't see an admin interface...

    Hello Ben

    Look at website www.evvecht.nl where an ImageBar Gallery control is presented at the bottom of the page. This developed user control is based on the Image Gallery example that is described at the Telerik RAD Control sites in combination with the ILoad control of RadActive (www.radactive.com).

    This has resulted in a very easy to use gallery control that can be managed in a user friendly way. ThumbNails are created automatically. You can click on the thumbnail to see the large image.

    Regards
    Luc

    Hi Luc,

    Thanks for the feedback.  I think I'm looking for something a bit more slick (in terms of features of the actual gallery).  The image uploader looked really good.  I'll check it out more, but in terms of managing the galleries, what's the UI?  Are there permissions? Users?

    I need a really good, solid, full-featured gallery.

    Thanks

    Ben

    Hi Ben

    The way we use it, is based on the management functionality of Sitefinity it self. If you have permission to edit the page you are able to manage (add, change, delete) the pictures in the imagebar.

    regards
    Luc

    Hi Ben, I don't know if you are still in the market for an ASP.NET 2.0 Gallery Control App, but I am using the M$ Personal Web Site Kit (Gallery only) in Sitefinity Projects. In essence all you have to do is create a page in SF linking to an external page, htis page is the default page for the PWS. The PWS although must configured under IIS as an application seperately from SF. If you want to see an example, go to http://www.montebellunarugby.it and click on "GalleriaFoto" and take a look. Look familiar??

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Falcon,

    We ended up writing our own.  We wrote an Image Manipulator that allows people to upload image and then apply effects, such as Drop-Shadow, resize, sepia, crop, etc.  They can then add captions and keywords and create different galleries.  We have an early version here: http://www.imagetrakker.com but we've made a lot of improvements to it lately and haven't updated that site yet.  We then wrote a user control that our clients can drop onto their site and display a single album or a whole gallery.  Again, an early version is here: http://www.waldorfgarden.org/events/index.aspx though newer versions have more features.  The clients can select thumb sizes, whether to show navigation, start in the Gallery view, auto play, etc, depending on their preferences for that particular slideshow.

    We're really happy with it, and may make it available to the community at some point.  Our clients love it
