Are the files in the gallery stored as regular files on the server, or are they stored in the DB? I assume the former but just want to check...

They are stored as regular files on the server. Storing them in the DB would cause the database to become large rather quickly and really isn't a good method for an image gallery.

That's what I was hoping...I have lots of server space but limited db space. Thanks!

I wish there was a trial download but I guess that would be difficult to handle without having people ripping you off.

From what I've seen vBa Gallery is very impressive.

There is a front-end demo as well as an admin demo as well that should give you a pretty good idea of how everything works. And of course if you have any questions or concerns before you buy I'll be more than happy to answer them.
