Gallery Choice?

Hello,

I am overwhelmed by all of the choices and technical aspects to setting up a gallery, and was hoping someone here could suggest one for me.  Optimally, what I want a gallery to do is:

- Have the ability to post pictures in a manner very similar to how I post with BE right out of the box - maybe choosing an icon like 'make gallery' vs. posting a single large image.

- These posted images would generate thumbnails.

- The thumbnails would be what is displayed in the post as a gallery/grid.

- Clicking the thumbnails would make a Lightbox appearance of the larger image.

- The choice as to whether or not to preload the larger images - in most instances I would prefer not to, actually.

Do any of the gallery extensions do these things?  I hope so, but none say specifically how the posts are made - is it common that a gallery can be made just as simply as posting images with these extensions?

Thank you for your time.

I use Jalbum on our hiking club website and it works great.

Same here. I am looking for a way to display an image in new entries at the homepage. This way when readers visit the homepage, they look at the smaller version of the image and select to open the posts they're interested in to view more details instead of opening each post to find out what it is.

Anyone has any solution to that?

Thanks
