Hi all!

My sister asked me to help her set up a simple website for her photography business. Her needs seemed simple enough to me that I thought I could do it with a WordPress site. However, there are a few specific needs she has that I'm having a hard time finding plugins for.

Basically what I need is some sort of Photo Album plugin that allows for multiple albums and the option to password protect certain albums. The reason for this is that she wants to be able to have her customers view proofs of the photos and she wants to password protect photos, especially those of children.

Also acceptable would be a (cheap or free) webservice (Flickr?) that already does something like this and then a WordPress plugin that integrates that webservice into WordPress.

Any tips and help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

Maybe have your sis' take a look at this page: http://www.magix-online.c...uk/online_album.1519.html Does it offer what she needs? I would imagine so. The free hosting (<10GB) came as part of one of my MAGIX Xtreme (from the same company that does Xara Xtreme) programs, but I don't recall from which one of them, and I don't know what program you'll have to purchase as a minimum in order to get these extras.

http://www.magix.com

http://www.xaraonline.com...frontpage.asp?MKCode=4982 is somewhat interesting too.

Edited:
Sorry; only now did I see the word photography business.

Hmm, you could try having different posts as galleries. That way you can password protect the post and conversely the gallery/group.
Or
You could integrate Flikr in there through a custom tag on WP. You enter the ID of the Flikr album in the custom tag and a plugin (you'd have to author one) would pull those photos through the API. That's a "shot-in-the-dark-idea" though.

Thanks for the suggestions Curt, but yeah, it is a business.

That's not a bad idea for a sort of last resort if there are no plugins or other better (read: easier to implement) ideas.

Anyone else have other suggestions?

i suppose my advice would depend on how many pictures she has.. i mean as soon as you start getting into large numbers, aren't you better off with a proper photo gallery thing, like Gallery (http://gallery.menalto.com/).

That's also a really good idea! Thanks for pointing Gallery out.

I just realized that this thread made it in the newsletter.

I went with Wordpress for updates/blog and Gallery for the photo albums. It's a compromise I'm not entirely happy with, so if anyone out there knows of software that easily plugs into WordPress I'd be glad to hear more suggestions.

I looked at Flogr and Plogger briefly but didn't see any mention of WordPress integration. If I missed it please let me know that I need to look deeper. I don't have internet at home so my online time is limited.
