Extension to or Replacement - IPB gallery Module

HI,

Couple Questions:

Can you clarify if your program is an enhancement to the IPB gallery module or if I would use this on my site instead of the IPB gallery module.

User uploads:

I read that users can upload via ftp. Will these photos be processed and posted automatically once the user ftp's or will they have to under go further steps prior to them being visible?

Thanks
Jamie

Our application is a full featured community gallery it would be instead of the gallery module ipb has.

As far as user uploads there are 3 types with ftp being the least used.

1. Normal upload via http prompt very common
2. flash uploader via popupwindow very common
3. ftp or bulkupload uncommon because you would have to give someone an ftp account locked into there own upload directory very time consuming to say the least. They then after ftping images would need to use the upload page and select the option to process files already in there upload directory.

Users would access your module with the same login information as they use for the forum, correct?

Some users will have larger uploads, and ftp seems to prove more reliable than http. At least it will be an option if http uploads fail.

Is there a Invision Power Board site setup that has your photo system installed that I could see?

Thanks

The forum login and style colors are used in our application yes

There are some example sites in our site header to look at. We only require users to submit the domain the software is running on not what it is integrated with so I cant say off the top of my head any sites.
