Another great mod. Right now, I am using smartor' s album mod and its feature set would be sufficient for me. Here is the feature listing:

Your mod already has a sort of user album, right? Then it would be good to implement user quotas. Smartor' s photo album has a picture limit, but there are also mods which limit the user albums by disk space.

Will you provide an upgrade path for Smartor's Photo Album users? It's the most popular photo gallery for phpBB and its development seems stopped. It would be nice to keep our Smartor's Photo Album personal gallery images, URL IDs, comments and votings at least.

What I would like to see is the option to choose a picture that will display as your snapshot within your profile

Great idea... I would like to see this, but instead of choosing a specific picture what about a "random" picture you may have uploaded?

If your looking for code to create this random option. The phpbb3portal system has a "Randon Member block" on the portal page, you could use this, instead of a member you could have it bring up the photo. Just an idea... best of luck, can't wait to see it released!

so far, I like all the ideas… I don't know how long it will take me… all depends on my free time.
My first version is about half finished… it won't have all the features listed, more features will be added in each version 8-)

Features
  1. Categories with Categorized images.
  2. Page where users can see all images uploaded by you.
  3. Pict counter (counts how many times an image has been viewed)
  4. Uploader page - to upload images directly into the gallery
  5. Your images are manageable in the UCP
  6. Most viewed images listable on any page
  7. Most recent images listable on any page
  8. Add comments to images (users add comments for other users images)
  9. Add image to your favorites
  10. Rate images
  11. upload multiple images
  12. upload zip files
Please submit your feature requests for this mod.
I believe the necessarily features can be released on the mod's first release. This is what I think as the needed features for a simple photo gallery:
  1. Categories with Categorized images.
  2. Page where users can see all images uploaded by you.
  3. Pict counter (counts how many times an image has been viewed)
  4. Uploader page - to upload images directly into the gallery
  5. Your images are manageable in the UCP
  6. Most viewed images listable on any page
  7. Most recent images listable on any page
  8. Add comments to images (users add comments for other users images)
  9. upload multiple images
Basically it should much be like Smartor's album mod. Of course you can add more features as time goes, but there are needed features I believe above are the ones you should have on your first release.

I'm glad someone is working on this. I know many people will appreciate your work. This is something many online communities want.

Superb! This is one mod im waiting for mefore moving over to phpBB3!

How about a link under the users name in the post saying something like:

My Album : X pictures

Only shows up once a user has uploaded pictures and is a clickable link taking you direct to that users pictures.

Kepp up the good work!

This mod sounds great. It would be good if you could subscribe to to other user's gallery (with notifications via MP when a new photo is uploaded).

Hello,
check the Full Album Pack for more features to implement.
It's based on Smartor's Photo Album.
The FAP still is living and the last update for Smartor's Album is only some months ago.

Bye Martin
