Flexible Image Galleries with File Entities
Complete image gallery solutions for Drupal 7 are hard to find. Sure there's always the Taxonomy + Image node approach, but what you want is something that feels cohesive, with functionality like:
- Bulk uploading of images.
- Controlling image order within galleries.
- Images that can be reused site-wide.
- Proper attribution and associated data (photographer, copyright, caption, etc).
Come and learn about how to accomplish these goals through using the File Entity module. You may be familiar with installing this module because it is a dependency for the Media project, but this presentation will cover how you can use this module without Media to accomplish these goals.
This presentation will cover a smaller "click it together" approach using a variety of file related modules, including File Entity, Plupload, FileField Sources, Views, and a variety of modules for producing output in different ways (slideshows, carousels, etc.)
