I think the feeling is also based on the following.
Old vB releases could not deal with pictures at all, only as attachments.
vBGallery and pp closed the gap.
Now we got the albums in vBulletin. Features are very limited and you cannot directly compare vBGallery and pp to that but for a lot of boards this is already enough and product addons add a lot of functionality to this vB function so that the space between the products is becoming smaller.
While I see vB adding more and more functions I am waiting for the big bang within vBGallery and pp to make it more clearer to my users why they should use the gallery I payed for and not the small but simple built in solution.
You also know that I started begging here for more multi language support a while ago. In this area the album function is fine cause its following the overall vB concept that everything should be phrased (to be fair also Jelsoft has gaps there :-))
I don't like to present my board to my users very well translated but then have a major area (the gallery) where this is not the case.
Beside the fact that I only run private boards where this is not sooooo important for me as admin, I can understand the users and it would be a reason to not use your products (pp) when I should setup a commercial board supporting more than one language.
btw. please add a FLUID style to your board. I hate it using a 24" monitor and then having a board which fits into my browsers sidebar
