How do I uninstall Photo Post Pro?
I want to completely remove the install. Is there a script or do I need to remove it manually? I want to start with a fresh install of Photo Post Pro.

You would clear or delete your database tables from the database for photopost. They are the ones usually prefixed with pp_ and you would delete the photopost directory on your server and start over.
No real need to do this. You can always update your files and rerun install to fix any issues you might have without doing a full delete.

I had a quick question about this with a slight twist. It seems that my upgrade on the new Photopost 2.4.3 didn't process correctly. None of the template edits are showing up (like the "Gallery" tab in Your Profile). The installation kind of hanged so I stopped it, unwisely. I believe my only recourse is to uninstall and reinstall it again.
My question is: will the user posts and pictures be affected by this? I don't want to remove user comments on the pictures in my galleries or any of the pictures. In other words, what actually gets removed when uninstalling Photopost and do we have the option to choose?

well you might want to ask this in the vbgallery support forums as uninstalling is a bit different I beleive you run the install script and their is a delete option. Deleting things will most definately delete comments and photos though.

How do we reinstall Photopost and integrate it with PhpBB without losing any info in the dbase?

MAKE ALL YOUR USERS REGISTER IN PHPBB3 WITH THE SAME USERNAME AND PASSWORD
You can try deleting any usergroup entries in the photopost usergroups table and photopost users table. You can then rerun install.php to integrate with phpbb and install that integration correctly. You would then run this script to update your photos and comments usernames with the proper new userid from phpbb3
