I need a strategic advice .
How to organize better the gallery structure ? http://artpapa.com/gallery/
All of the categories are reated for the "Copyright Free Photo Pictures" and any member can upload to those categories.
Right now all the pictures uploaded by user are mixed up without any order in the Member Gallery.
But Artpapa site is for the artists, so it’s very important that in the Member Gallery will appear only the artworks of this particular member. Or at least those artworks must be in a separate appropriate directory.
Please advise how to set it up. I still don’t feel logic in PP organizing opportunities.

Please advise how to do that not "any category" but ONLY "artworks" would get in the "Individual user galleries". Thank you in advance.

I see there is still not much enthusiasm…
I hope It is my English problem only, otherwise I’m sure, that I will have some advices?
May I post my question in Russian (the smile)?

well your site looks fine and you can post in russian if you choose although no one will be able to understand you except for maybe someone who speaks russian.
I dont think anyone personally can advise you cause they are not going to understand what you mean by mixed up. Thats a very relative term.

I need to work more on my English. This time I asked a professional translator to help me.
Here is my question:
When users upload their images, all files are placed under the author’s name in “Member Galleries” regardless of the image category. As a result, photos of a giraffe in the zoo (“Zoo Category”), of children (“Family”), and of flowers (“Inspiration Category”) get mixed up with images of the author’s oil paintings. What should be done in order to have images of art created by the user in “Member Galleries” and to have photographs in other categories that are not related to art?
I understand that the software does not differentiate jpg images, and categories, subcategories, albums, extra fields, and key words should be created. Is it possible to create separate categories for “Member Galleries Artwork” and “Member Galleries Reference Pictures” instead of “Member Galleries Individual User Galleries - Any Category”? Perhaps “Member Galleries All Pictures” is not needed at all because viewers are more interested in what artists have painted, and the artists’ photographs interest the viewers in a lesser degree.
I'm getting emails from confused members. One of their concerns is that other people might think they can use a members finished artwork as a reference

You can in Admin => ShowGallery Options turn off the option that members gallery shows all a users photos to NO.
This should help you
