've been using familpress.net's photopress plugin to run my gallery for a while now. however, i find that i am looking for a lot more than is capable with that plugin along. its a great plugin, and i would recommend it, however, i do need a bit more.
i need a better way to display my artwork is what it comes down to. my website is http://www.industrythirteen.com and this is what i need:
+ ability to upload images with the wordpress admin panel
+ ability to create thumbnails on the wordpress admin panel
+ would like to be able to crop parts of the image for my thumbnails (not necessary, but would love it)
+ each thumbnail points to its own page with its larger image
+ popup for an even closer look at the image from the image on the page
+ allow people to leave comments with each image on each images' individual page
+ needs to be totally customizable to fit my layout
+ needs to be able to support multiple galleries based on category
if anyone can point me in the right direction for a plugin that will help me do what i need, i would be very appreciative.
