Heal Your Church WebSite


Teaching, rebuking, correcting & training in righteous web design.

the Gallery Project

The Gallery Project Page – Now here’s a resource (via Jim O’Halloran) that I think every church web site might like. A photo gallery.I mean nothing says compelling content then showing potential visitors just how much cool fun you’re having picnics, retreats and worship services.

Enter Gallery. A slick, intuitive web based photo gallery (written in PHP) with authenticated users and privileged albums. Easy to install, configure and use. Photo management includes automatic thumbnails, resizing, rotation, etc. User privileges make this great for communities. This release includes a security fix and a number of small bugfixes.

There are other galleries I’ve used and like, but I think this one is worth looking into for those of you who are just beginning to think about bringing your church’s story to life in pictures. Mostly because Gallery seems to have a good-sized team of Open Source support and fairly decent documentation.

You can snarf the latetest release over at SourceForge.

  1. Easy to install. :-| Well I guess I don’t know enough. Actually I am having trouble with the ImageMagik or NetPBM, so I guess it is not the actual instalation of Gallery is vexxing me.

  2. It’s a great tool. I’ve installed it for exactly the purposes described.

  3. Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!

    I have defeated the beast, and I got gallery up and working! But not with ImageMagick.

    I feel quite triumphant right now. This will be a cool way to share pictures on the church website.

    Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!
