I am interested in using Gallery in a business environment, however the main functionality that am interested in isn't there (I think) but thought since it's open source I can develop it.
Basically I want to use Gallery for images of our products (supermarket). These images are in PSD/AI format and will be on a remote server at our creative agency. I want to install Gallery over at the creative agency on the server so they can fully manage it uploading new images and all.
However I want Gallery to serve me images in big batches. Meaning, I want to have a field, where I can paste up to 100-150# SKU numbers (unique numbers for each product or image), and Gallery serves me all these images in a webpage. Nothing more nothing less!
Of course, since the images are PSD/AI format, Gallery shouldn't serve them as such (will require huge bandwidth). So it should just serve 100X100 jpegs or something.
Ideally, I would also like extra options like the ability of choosing the layout, i.e number of columns and/or rows I want the served webpage to be. And maybe the ability to add headers and footers for printing.
Am assuming that I can give each image an SKU number using tags, but that could be error prone. Could one add a functionality of mutually exclusive tags? If one tag is in the DB then Gallery would refuse to tag it until the other one is changed?
Sorry about the gazillion questions. I am just new to Gallery
