Hi, I have a photo website with plain large picture galleries (there are no databases) based on Lightbox gallery. I am seriously missing the option to add keywords/tags to pictures and perhaps some comment (a sentence or a few) under it and a search engine on the website to search for specific images.
Could anyone please suggest some solid photogallery with above mentioned features, plus, it must be possible to categorize images, i.e. landscape, animals, architecture, etc?
I should mention that I have skills in HTML only, no experience in databases. So it would be great if the installation of the gallery isn't extremely difficult. Also, no experience with Wordpress or other similar platforms.
If interested, then my current website is HERE. This is self made from the beginning (excepte Lightbox gallery function, which is only embedded by me). Url says it's php but it's actually html. Php is only used for include() function. I have no php skills either :(
I use Zenfolio, and all of my metadata transfers over. You can categorize by collections and galleries and add any information you need to search later on. If you have a certain level account, you can add unlimited amounts of photos (and videos).
Once you learn to navigate the site, it is very easy. Especially easy if you are entering all of your keywords, etc. prior to uploading your photos.
This is old topic but thanks for the suggestions. Currently I am satisfied with my site, although it would be nice to have a search functionality there. Once I have more free time, I'll dig into wordpress. I've never used the wordpress and therefore at the moment have no idea how to build websites with this. And creating databases (for search to work) is completely undiscovered field for me. I'm that good :D
FYI, my site uses simple lightbox plugin do display photos and i've integrated one infinity scroll plugin to that to avoid "next page" buttons. Lightbox plugin is somehow very sensitive and most used/known infinity scroll plugins make Lighbox to stop working, but finally after several days of searching I found one that doesn't screw up the gallery plugin.
