Over the last week or so I've installed both Gallery 1 and some of the latest of Gallery 2. I really do enjoy Gallery 2, and think it will be an awesome deal to use. However, I find that it seems to be a little on the slow side. I understand some of the reasons why, and do not need to be reminded of those. I have been using Coppermine and find it to be much quicker loading. My question now is why does Coppermine load so much more quickly than Gallery 2 does? From what I understand (which might not be much at all...) both are database driven and work in very similar ways. Is it because of some of the features that make Gallery 2 a "better" system? I'm questioning this because after the time it takes to move around and set up everything in Gallery 2, I could have done much more in Coppermine, and because of that I am considering dropping my movement into Gallery and sticking with Coppermine.
I am using ImageMagick for both galleries, and am using the nightly build from 3/9/05 for Gallery 2.
Any replies or suggestions are appreciated.
