Major Features

Multiple Instances You can run an unlimited number instances of the gallery on the same forum with same set of files! Each instance can have a different look and feel to it, and with enough work can have a completely different function because of the system we built it on.

AJAX integration We used AJAX wherever we could to help reduce the page reloads

Automatic resizing and thumbnail creation As long as your server can handle it, the users can upload whatever size pictures they want. The gallery will control the size displayed and stored, and will even create a thumbnail, all automatically. Users no longer have to worry about resizing their images to fit what your forum specifies. If you do not have a server with the power to resize images (GD image library can get pretty memory intensive) then you can set the gallery to reject images that do not fit into your size criteria.

User Albums Users can create their own image albums to organize and display sets of their images. Albums can also be set to hidden and/or password protected. So users who want to have images for only certain friends or not visible to anyone else at all can easily organize them.

    • Public or Hidden - Images in a hidden album will not be visible to users other then that owner

There is a problem with editing/deleting other users images. If you set the usergroup settings to Is Admin it will allow them to, but obviously you don't want to do that for non admin groups
I should have a new release tomorrow night which will fix that problem.

If you have permissions to do it, you wll have a pencil next to the title on the New Style and an edit button in the top right on the vB Style

Yes, the next version has the option in the settings to soft delete images. If it is soft deleted it will not show up in the browse, search, user profile. The image will still be in linked threads and you can view the image if you directly link to it.

There is a section in the ACP to view the deleted images and either physically delete or reactivate them or obviously leave them alone

Can you give me a bit more info on why you can't install it? Does the installer give you an error?
If you are getting an error that the upload directory can't be written to try setting the dbtech/gallery/images/upload/ folder to 777 permissions. If that still doesn't work I'd need to get an admin account and ftp permissions to troubleshoot futher.

Yes, there is an importer for photopost gallery. There were a few small bugs still being worked out of it when I used it about a week ago. With the help of the DBTech staff I was able to get mine imported from vbGallery without too much hassle. I don't believe they have released the latest version with importer bugs fixed yet, but if I was to guess it would be coming within days.

I'm sure the DBTech staff will chime in before too long on the current status of the importer.

Nice! Thank you bzcomputers for you answer. I've a question for you: you have used both software, what do you think is better Photopost or DB Gallery?

I would say shortly they will be on par with each other and very soon after that, Dragonbyte Gallery will be the leader.

...this is just one man's opinion

Photopost vbGallery
Photopost has been around for years with their product and it has had time to mature and is a pretty clean and refined product now. Photopost works well but can be a little intimidating setting it up and tweaking it to get it the way you want it. On the other side the support for vbGallery I have found to be almost non-existent. If you have an idea or an issue, don't hold your breath on getting it fixed/implemented. Their updates are few and far between and don't expect any new features/additions in the lifetime of your product license - they will most likely not be coming. I believe Photopost became complacent because up until now competition was lacking, especially on the vBulletin side for galleries.

Dragonbyte Gallery
Dragonbyte Gallery is a new product. From it's initial release just two months ago to the current product I think it has come a long way. The initial setup is much more straight forward (as compared to Photopost) and user friendly enough even for a novice. Support is second to none (as is with all Dragonbyte products from my experience). Every suggestion and comment made to them is truly taken into consideration. Their implementation of bug fixes, tweaks and additional features seems to be continual. The only thing that I believe holding Dragonbyte Gallery back at this point is the lack in number of users and good feedback, since it is such a new product. My suggestion is to jump on board and give it a run - I don't think you will be disappointed, this product is going places! Use it, let them now what you like and don't like. The more feedback they get, the better the product we all will get.

Like I said at the top, I believe it is almost inevitable the way things are going that the true leader in vBulletin gallery software will soon be Dragonbyte Gallery.

Thanks for the kind words bzcomputers

With that I have a new release heh.

This release adds a number of requested features and will increase the useability of the product. This is a signifigant feature release so consider it beta until it goes gold. I am leaving the 1.1.3 version on here in case someone wants to stick with the stable version until the 1.2.x series is considered stable.

There are a number of configuration items that will need to be done after the installation to utilize some of the new features.

Included in v1.2.1:
Fixed - Left/Right CSS specifications
Fixed - Users with permissions to delete others images not being able to edit and delete images
Added - username to search
Added - sort by username on gallery front page
Added - options to disable links on view image
Added - option to move info to hover text on gallery thumbs
Added - cinema dimmer
Added - enlarge image inline
Added - Instance Option between pagenav with physical page load or nav buttons with ajax load
Added - ACP Setting to use either physical image or hidden link for thumbnails
Added - Add links to Youtube videos with thumbnail and info
Added - Upload image from URL
Added - Ability to upload and display swf and flv flash files
Added - ACP options to select type of files allowed
Added - ACP option to require link to source files for url added images
Added - option to have notifications on comments and new images through vB notifications instead of PM
Added - ACP Setting to have images soft delete so they wont break attached/linked images
Added - ACP option to permanently remove soft deleted images
Added - Icon to popup image selector in post editor
Added - Permissions to be able to manually create nav manager entries
Added - Next/Previous images next to image on view image to ease navigation (optional on/off from ACP)
Changed - Navbit to display Viewing Image: {Image title}

Some things to configure after installation:

**Important** You need to edit the Gallery Instance in the ACP and set the type of images you want allowed to upload. Until you set this nothing can be uploaded.

If you allow users to upload images from a url you might want to specify that the source link be displayed to save yourself copyright problems
Settings -> Gallery Image Settings -> URL Images display source link

You also might want to instruct your users to set their max visible image size. This will set the size of the image when viewing it. This helps on forums that have a fixed width style and users with a low resolution setting.
Gallery -> My Profile -> Edit My Information -> View Image Width

The option to be notified of new images and comments is in the same Edit My Information section

I hope you all enjoy the new version and thanks for the suggestions!

Dylan
