    Hi there

    I have two reasons to request an FolderBased Image Galery

    1) I have 25 GB of web space but only 20 MB MS SQL Server Space. So storing the images in the SQL DB will be either limted or expensive if I have many images

    2) I want to controll the compression rate for thumbnails.

    Therefore I think it would be nice if you could have a Option to have the Image Galery folder based, but understand that this needs some requierments in order to match images and thumb.

    Could be that you must have an folder THUNBS under the Folder with the images - And that the images of the Thumbs and originals must have the same name. After that it should be easy.

    And yes. We could do it ourself but it might be nice to have it built into 4.0.

    Regards Markus

    PS: Anyone out there that has such a module yet ?

    You can take a look at the following forum post where a solution was provided. We are considering similar way for 4.0. I hope this helps.
