I'm not sure if Gallery could do what I want out of the box or maybe with plugins so I thought I would ask its user base if its appropriate for what I want to do.
I am an artist, and I want a gallery for my work. I want the front page to immediately show my most recent work as a grid of images. Instead of albums and sub-albums, I want to organize my work by tagging each image. I then want this front page to have a tag list or tag cloud where the user can click on a tag, and have the selection of images filter down to just images within that tag. For instance, if I have an image of a silver chain bracelet with onyx beads, I want to tag it as "silver" "bracelet" and "onyx" and allow users to click on tags to find it under all of those.
It would be a plus if the user could select more than one tag at a time and have the union or intersection of those tags show up. I.E. select "onyx" and "silver" and have either all images featuring both, or all images featuring either to show up.
If I used albums or categories at all, it would be to separate major groups, like jewelry from paintings. I hope I have portrayed what I am looking for in a gallery. Can Gallery do this?
