We have a winner!

At long last, we've chosen a winner for the Gallery Logo Contest! Drumroll please... The winners are as follows:

1st place: Mike Harding (prize: $200)
2nd place: Max Germer (prize: $100)
3rd place: Frederik Vandaele (prize: $50)

Making this decision was more difficult than any of us anticipated. We were completely floored by the number of incredibly high caliber designs. This is just further evidence of the amazingly rich community that has grown around Gallery. Stunning!

Mike Harding's design is bright, clean and eye-cathing. The logotype is tight and concise, and the semi-pixelated photo icons is brilliant. In the end we deemed it the most flexible and most representitive of what Gallery is all about.

Frederik Vandaele's design grabbed us as simple and catchy. The understated tilted box, the popped-out slides and clean text made the design exciting.

Max Germer's design was the dark horse entry. The tri-color bar is simple, yet interesting. It has a very modern XHTML/CSS feel. But what really made this logo a favorite was the "little Gallery dude". He brought character to the Gallery logo.

View the winners and all the other entries in the sneak-preview Gallery2 pre-alpha demo. Again, thanks to everyone who entered the logo contest, and everyone who submitted comments in the logo gallery (some of them were very insightful :). In the next few weeks we will be working with Mike in integrating his design into the world of Gallery. Stay tuned!!

Gallery Remote 1.2 Released!

In the wake of Gallery 1.4.1, here is a new version of Gallery Remote. It adds a bunch of new and often-requested features, some of which are only available when using it to connect to an updated Gallery:

- drag-and-drop and sorting of pictures has been dramatically improved and debugged. Moving pictures between albums (before uploading) is now easy.
- uploading pictures is now a more predictable affair, thanks to the new upload progress bar, and GR can now shut down the machine once upload is done (on Windows only).
- GR can now detect picture orientation if EXIF information is available, and rotates the pictures appropriately.
- more details in the ChangeLog...

Gallery 1.4.1 Released!

Gallery Logo Semi-Finalists Chosen

After a long wait (yes, I know it's been over two weeks since the logo contest ended) we have published the logo semi-finalists on our sneak preview Gallery 2 demo server.

The core team members have selected 20 logos out of the 84 submissions as our semi-finalists. We are now going to go through those 20 logos and choose our new Gallery logo and the 2nd and 3rd place entries. I know there has been some speculation about our decision making process and I can tell you that it is extremely difficult to choose between all these great submissions. I know that people are eager to hear our decision but I ask you to please be patient with us. We aim to choose the new logo within the next two weeks.
