Thanks for the response Chuck, on the weekend too :O.
Sorry, I think Im not asking the right questions. Let me try again. Basically my problems are thus:
1. vBulletins uploader is rubbish, I need something like your flash uploader so people dont assume their pc is broken when uploading a large image. It'd be nice to change the background color and fonts in the uploader..is that kind of thing possible?
2. we need multiple verisons of each image, in varying sizes.im not sure 3 is going to be enough...if the orignal files are available then I think it's only a small step to creating these...especially if the image files are delivered back to <img> tags in a similar fashion to vb
(ie in a php script, with hooks?)..is that how your system works?
3. we need to make the orignal files available to a selected user group, but not anyone else. Again it is vbs upload method that is causing me problems here. Is your system going to cause me similar problems?
4. (and this is were im expecting to do some coding of my own) we need to enable some kind of tagging feature so that we say have users say "oh, there's Bob in that photo" and look at other photos containing bob. I have a tagging feature that works with user albums and pictures by pluging into a couple of vb
hooks....will I be able to plug into vGalelry the same way?
