[drupal-devel] My approach on photo albums, slide show, etc.

Hi Adrian!

At the moment images are always uploaded by image module. I was thinking about 
creating a mass upload option based on a hacked version of photo album found 
at http://drupal.org/node/24872. You would choose the category, the 
appropriate album and then upload the images. I'm quite uneasy about it, 
though -- I would need someone to backup me if I'm unable to update the code 
to be compliant to future versions of image module.

So, the way it is now you upload the image using image module. Then you create 
the (simple) album and inform which nodes should be part of the it. I'm very 
unhappy with this form -- it's ugly, users must know each node id, etc. Today 
I thought about using the link hook to put a link on each image like 'add to 
album'. Clicking there, you would see a form with a drop-down list of your 
albums. You'd choose one and save. 

What do you think about all this?
