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.
