The photo gallery plugin for Elgg.


  • Photos organized in albums or group albums,
  • Commenting on photos and albums,
  • Tagging (members or word tags),
  • Slideshow,
  • Watermarking,
  • Upload multiple photos at once (HTML5/HTML4 uploader or web form),
  • Sorting photos in albums,
  • RSS feeds,
  • Notifications on new uploads,
  • Activity (river) integration,
  • Views counter,
  • Exif data support,

Todo (when time permits):

  • Get watermarking fully working (original uploaded image file gets not yet watermarked but only the resized image files),

  • Replace PiclensLite slideshow with Galleria slideshow (no flash required, responsive).
