I am developing a community where posting images will be a promotional tool. I only want to allow paid members to have images done with their work posted to a gallery or album, but I want all members to be able to post within those galleries or albums. However, I do want anyone posting images to be able to view all their images together. Can this be done?

Thanks,
Kathy

You can make it so only members of specific usergroups can post images; how those users get into the usergroups is up to you - if you integrate with vBulletin, then it can be done automatically using the Subscription option, if not then its a manual process.

We use the term gallery for public galleries anyone can post in and albums as a personal gallery that only the owner can post into.

Users can view all of their own images grouped together by going to their "Member Gallery" which is a psudo-gallery made up of all the users posts.

Based on what you are asking, I see no reason PhotoPost cannot accomplish what you want.

That's what I thought, Michael. So, I could give each paid designer a gallery that all members could post to. I'm planning to use phpBB for the forums...I've successfully set it up a couple of times and haven't found anything I need that it can't do. I still love the look of vBulletin, but since this is a start-up community, it's hard to justify the purchase at this point. I do see that you have integration with phpBB, so that's a great thing, too.

Thanks!

Sure thing, and yes, you could give each designer their own gallery that anyone can upload to.
