My photo gallery, called Imagery, is now open for your viewing pleasure.
I don’t have much in it right now; in fact as of this writing I only have one album with some pictures of my K-1000 camera. But now that the hard part is done (installing and configuring Gallery 2), I should be able to add the rest of my library over the coming weeks.
I still have some work to do, such as organizing the photos on my computer, and then figuring out how to allow my family members to add to albums as well, while keeping them from public view. As of this writing I’m not allowing guests to add comments, but I’ll try and change that as soon as a comment moderation feature becomes available.
I only installed Gallery because I wanted to be able to host the photos on my own domain, but I wonder if it’s really worth the trouble when services like Flickr and Picasa Web Albums are so much easier to use, and don’t rely on me to keep everything up and running. I’ll probably end up uploading my photos to all three locations, so that way if I ever prefer one as my primary location in the future, it will already be all set. Plus, redundancy is always an essential part of a good backup strategy.
Please try it out and let me know what you think.
