In search of a Gallery skin

by Volker Weber

I had to upgrade my Gallery installation. Now I am stuck with ugly skins. Gallery was never good looking, but it was ok, when you set everything to black and white. The skins however are all "developer goes designer".

Recently I came across a site that had a wonderful Gallery skin - for download. And I did not download it. Bugger. I think it was a site that linked here, or a person that commented here, or ... I can't remember. So here is my plea:

If you designed a skin for Gallery, please let me know.


Just a curiosity: what version of Gallery did you choose?

I believe 2.x is still in far to early stage whereas 1.5-pl1 should be stable enough and provide you with quite a bit of alternative skins if you look around on the web.

As for myself, I am still on 1.4.4-pl6 and can't really see any good reason for changing..

I did a Gallery theme, but that's for Gallery 2.0, however I guess you are using Gallery 1.x... Photos (my Photo site) Gallery 2.0 Theme (the corresponding theme, a bit cleaned up and un-customized)

And I think Gallery 2.0 is not in far too early stage, it's heading the final release, and it's rock stable (for some months already) as far as I can tell.

It so much better than 1.x, no more tables, completely customizable (nice theme system), database driven (scalable), and look at the PHP code... Sooo clean...

I'm using the 2.x versions as well, started using them with the last alpha and been upgrading whenever a new version was released.

2.x is far cooler and got far more features than 1.x - and it isn't even final

Volker: Are you looking for ?

Kay, no, I was not looking for those. They are all awful.

Thanks, Nico. Yes, your skin was the one I was looking for. I did not get the version info. No luck then. At least I can stop looking. ;-)

Nico, I take your word for it, I may have a go at Gallery 2.x using your nice skin :-)

btw, is 2.x compatible with the iPhoto2gallery plugin and iPhoto 05?

Pieterjan Lansbergen, 2005-09-10

@Pieterjan: Yes, compatible.
