Features of a PhotoLog? (12 posts)

    I *should* have a little bit of extra time in the next couple of week and I would like to work on putting together a photolog that is functional, compliant, useful and would benefit people. This would, of course, be a modified version of WordPress. What features do you expect in a photoblog?
    I personally would like to be able to
    - seamlessly upload single pictures and have automatic thumbnail creation
    - extract EXIF data from picture and make it available to the post
    - be able to add text to a post around a picture
    - calendar with thumbnails
    - archive by month, with thumbnails
    - identify a post using its thumbnail
    - simple "previous" and "next" browsing of posts
    - comments
    Ideas? Comments? Suggestions? Requests?
    PS: If you would like to collaborate or help with this project, please email me or leave a comment on here. Thanks

    Can we have the option to add the previous n thumbnails on the main page?
    Everything else sounds great.
    Another useful option would be to be able to upload an entire directory of pixs, and have one picture act as the representative. Click that picture, which appears on the homepage, and get to the directory with the rest of the pictures in the same series.
    Just kidding! :) Your ideas are good enough :)

    I would love to see an automatically advancing slideshow feature that includes all images.

    How about albums ? Would that be taken care of by WordPress Categories ? I guess this is moving away from a blog and going towards a gallery package, but sometimes it might be nice to go back over dated entries and pull a few together for a theme. Being able to have a single post that describes that theme/Category/album and then shows all the thumbnails, which then link off to each original post would be lots of work and very neat !
    Good luck with your coding.

    Im happy with jsut about any kind of photo log, I dont want to try MT or anyone elses, WordPress has by far been the best, in my opinion.
    Cant wait to get it up and going,

    I'll have a beta version for you all soon! Hows that? It'll add another menu item to wordpress for the albulm. =)

    nicest features would be:
    - show big photo not on extra-page, but in normal blog-page (no popup...)
    - calendar with thumbnails
    - archive by month, with thumbnails
    - archive by category, with thumbnails
    - identify a post using its thumbnail
    - simple "previous" and "next" browsing of posts
    - comments for each photo
    - "send to a friend"
    thanx a lot for your work!!!

    This looks great so far. Do you have any idea when it would be finished (weeks, months, etc)?

    Looks good, except you spelled "albulm" wrong :)
