(My email reply didn't post, so, this time manually..)

Pictures, files, audio, video ... its up to you what to allow.

It will also create thumbnail images for PDF files, probably others as well, so if you add a PDF to an album you will see a thumbnail of the first page of the PDF which is pretty sweet.

Way Cool -  In my younger days I'd be all over this beta test (I was involved in what became RBBS while it was still on CP/m and used a Bell acoustic coupler), but now I'm old, tired and suffer from CRAFT so I'll let's ya'll debug it while I sip my Paddy and patiently lurk - it will be the "killer-ap" driver for me to upgrade EA to 1.17.

HA, I was a Trash 80 guy using Connection80 and Bullet80 stuff before I spun my own.  And I was rocking a Hayes 300 baud Smartmodem that cost me damn fortune LOL

It's in the test phase as we speak!! A couple of items:

How are gallery managers selected? Apparently a couple of membergroups were automagically selected upon install, not necessarily desired groups to manage the gallery.  ;D  Oh, and not all membergroups are shown in Media Permissions?

Also, oddly a couple animated gif smileys flash or are invisible in the post box. Equally as odd not all animated gif smileys are affected.

Otherwise, so far, so good! Thanks spuds!!!

Fortune indeed - $600 for a 300 baud Smartmodem on special, but compared, to the $2400 for a Xerox 16/8 (Z-80 and 8086 dual processors with a 10 Meg HD - will I ever need that much storage ? ? ? )  that did both CP/M and DOS (2.0) simultooneously and another $1200 for a Diablo 630 wide-carriage daisy printer  - I was stylin then!

Worth it though - Didn't have to rush home from work to make my scheduled file transfers any more  :D

Wow, I can't believe this is true, we are finally having a gallery add-on for Elkarte. I will surely test it and use it in the future.
Thank you @Arantor‍ & @Spuds‍ far making this possible.
sorry for my bad english

After some quick tests I have some questions:
  • There is a tag cloud, but how can we use tags? tags are applied to albums or single items?
  • there is no way to apply dimension limits (resizing) for administrators. Is this normal?
  • any way to see a list of all albums from all users? not based on members alums
  • any plan to use categories for albums?

Reports:
  • I guess there is a bug, I checked twice the permissions and as a registered member I can only add an items as embeded videos, but not jpg files. Am I missing something? If I give this permission " Groups that can manage the gallery" to regular members I can upload pictures.

I've only installed it a few times on kind of empty forums and I don't think it set any default groups for me, so I'll have to check on that.  I know it does not show post count groups (it can but it does not by default), are there other groups missing?
Also, oddly a couple animated gif smileys flash or are invisible in the post box. Equally as odd not all animated gif smileys are affected.

Are these animated smileys in the editor, and if so are they always shown or in the popup?  Just so I can try and reproduce (the error that is :D)

You can apply tags to items when you add them or edit them.  I don't believe there are any restrictions on the tags, such as predefined lists which might be a nice add.
  • there is no way to apply dimension limits (resizing) for administrators. Is this normal?
I think the intention was admins are supermen and no restrictions really apply.
  • any way to see a list of all albums from all users? not based on members alums
Media->See Albums should show you all of them.  You can then fine tune using the side taskbar to drill down to specific members or groups.
  • any plan to use categories for albums?
I prbably need some more clarifcation on this.  You should be able to set up your albums and then set permissions to achieve this, at least I think so.

I'll check on that now, sounds like a small bug

Sorry, not a bug, my mistake, I removed the limits for registered members. After adding    Maximum pixel size & Maximum file size I can add jpg files.

anoter question: this add-on resize the images based on "Maximum pixel size" set in Media Quotas?

Duplicate post complements of the PBE function .. I found that message in the Gmai Spam.  Since it posted I'm going to assume that was the only issue (well other than it doing a crappy job seeing the original quote and dealing with it)

Sounds like a feature request ;) TBH I'm not sure if it does that or not, have to check.  It does handle auto rotation fixes.

I'd say resizing images it's a nice feature for a gallery. I am not sure there is image resizing and I explain why:
- If I upload a single image bigger than the limits set up in ACP it tells me that the image cannot be uploaded
Code: [Select]
Something went wrong while uploading this item:
    The image you tried to upload is too big.
- If I use the Bulk image to upload some images the total size of uploaded images is smaller than the total size of the original images. Anyway I cannot upload them and check the size, there is no Continue button. Here a screenshot
X
as you can see the total size of the original images is about 10 MB, but in the bottom I see only 2,5 MB.

@radu81‍ the gallery uses dropzone.js. Therefore it may be possible to utilize client side resizing. That may be advantageous in saving server cpu (let the user's machine do the heavy lifting!), saves bandwidth (nice for mobile users with spotty connections), and saves disk space (the original goal, right?). A con is it applies to all users. I plan to work on such configurations later. 

Oh, another potential configurable in DZ is the Begin Upload button may be eliminated. Uploads begin upon file selection.
