First off I'd just like to say that I really like Gallery. Nice work.
I just installed g2 and after jumping through a few hoops got it going. It looks nice and clean!
I have a few questions (quick ones first, longer ones second):
What happend to the rotate feature?
Is there a design doc that specifies your plan on implementing the separation of data - the original pics - from the meta data - comments, thumbnails, etc?
I like in g1 how you can click the image 2 times to arrive at the full image. It appears that you have gone with a dropdown resolution box in g2. Any particular reason?
If I feel inclined to spend some time implementing a feature what is the best way to go about it? Should I outline my feature here or in the devel mailing list?
Basically this is the feature I want - I already implemented something like it for g1.
I store my pictures on a drive accessible to my linux server. I take a set of pictures with my camera sometimes several hundred in a day. I would like to tell g2 the name of the directory where these pictures exist. G2 would create an album based off the directory name and symlink all images in the directory and generate the meta data for the images (thumbnail, 640x480) in a different spot.
So images would be in /mnt/pictures/2003-08-08-oregon and then metaimages would be in /usr/local/apps/g2/data/2003-08-08-oregon and metadata would be stored in the database according to your schema.
Thanks for the read!!
