I have always been a big fan of the Gallery2 system. I tried many times to build a slick looking photo gallery in Drupal. However my biggest issue is that Drupal is lacking a mass import feature. Drupal is great if you are building a photo gallery from scratch and don't have many photos. My issue is that I had over 8,000 images to import. Because of this I utilized Gallery2 as a backend to build my gallery and import the images. Then I imported the gallery into Drupal using the Gallery2 module.

When I first imported the gallery into Drupal I had a lot of extra gunk. It basically looked like two seperate websites suck on top of each another. After some theme and module hacking I was able to make the gallery look natural in Drupal. I will always be working on my gallery, but feel free to check out almost finished gallery.
