wongaGallery Launch Party

Cast your minds back a few years, back to when I ran a group picture gallery from ballisticduck.co.uk. Remember? It’s back.

The wongaGallery is the latest addition to the World Wide Wonga, and I’ve just now put the finishing touches to it. Features:

  • Public and private albums
  • Integrated login with the wongaForum. You only need to create a user in the one.
  • You can upload your own images and have them private / public / group members only.
  • Categories and albums
  • Supports sound and video as well as photos
  • Automatic resizing and thumbnail creation
  • Add a title, description and keywords to each picture
  • Comment and rate other people’s photos
  • Send an e-card from any picture
  • Supports EXIF data, so any digital camera users can have the f-stop, shutter speed data etc. extracted automatically
  • Slideshow
  • Upload many pictures at once

I’ve added a *lot* of pictures already. Let me know if there are any you want removed or anything like that. At the moment anybody can view the Group images, although I may change that once every group member has a wongaForum account.

The initial setup confused me slightly. To start adding your own pictures, login to the gallery and look for the small grey bar with album creation options – if it’s not there click ‘Admin mode’ in the top menu. Use this to create a personal album, then go to ‘Upload file’ and you’re away.
