Hi Richard,

I'm not in front of the system at the moment, to see if nested albums work,
but I know that my albums and names appear in the filesystem arranged as
they are in G2 - and hence appear in MythGallery the same. 

You're completely correct about the other issues - it was a quick suggestion
for basic functionality which suits my purpose of having pictures on the

I can have more of a look at it at the weekend if you like - I've not used
it for ages!

There are a number of things that mythgallery wont understand like
descriptions, but it won't understand albums either. It works with
directories, which is ok, but the organisation of a gallery2 album structure
isn't reflected. It would be nice to understand permissions on albums too -
I haven't thought it all through myself, but this is what I would find
useful if others were to work on this.
