This page is currently draft!

Inspired by "Show off your Drupal photo gallery!" at http://groups.drupal.org/node/7018
we try here to set up a gallery-site like http://david.koenigsmann.de
- where all images are separated in nodes (one CCK-ImageField per node), sorted/make navigatable with taxonomies and displayed as views-lists.

Then, to archive the nice thumbnail and fading effects, we use imagecache and customize the view-template to work together with JQuery/Galleria-Plugin.
