A new frame for Menalto Gallery
Have you discovered Menalto Gallery yet? As in ‘gallery2.org‘?
Well, if you have a Web site, you should.
It’s easy to say something along the lines of “… putting a bunch of pictures on the Web… Huh! How hard could it be?” – and then you try to do it and you discover that it is not as easy as it seems. Not if you want something specific, that is. (Joining the herd at Flickr… is not for everyone.)
Gallery2 is the solution. It’s free. It’s Open Source. It’s pre-installed at virtually every web hosting service. And it’s easy to use.
In fact, at times it reaches the pinnacles of Apple-esque simplicity (comment on this, Fake Steve!)
It is also so well architectured, that today it is probably the most integrated with open source application of them all: from WordPress to Drupal to Joomla every project that need an image gallery turns to this application.
Most importantly, it is easy to enhance: there are countless user-developed themes, icon packs, color packs and image frames.
So, in case you wonder why I even bother re-stating the obvious and well known here, here is the meet: I have put together my first contribution to Gallery2. It’s an image frame. It looks like this and you can find it here.
