A::G is already using jpeg EXIF information fields (DateTimeOriginal and
Flash, at least), those could be used - but propably not as flexibly as you're

I actually have no idea of perl coding, but I think I just understood
(just wait for few minutes and I'm screaming for help..) how
to add more fields (F-number, Focal length, Shutter speed value etc.
information my digital camera stores on EXIF) to image information field
:) These might be nice to have by default (maybe commented out and
information on readme how to enable them?).

I'm also unable to get .htaccess files working; does A::G disable (by not
using them) their workability? I have some private folders (A::G is just
about perfect software for my needs of handling pictures in gallery - both
public and private), and now Im forced to use IP restrictions in apache
config file to avoid my private pictures viewed by others. I still would
like to allow certain people to access those images, so .htaccess with
password protection would fit my needs perfectly.

One more request :) Option to allow images viewed in original size. Should
not be hard one, rite? :)

Thanks anyway, after getting this baby working, it's been pure pleasure to
keep up & running. Some complainments I heard from people I
recommended this software because of requiring X11 libraries. By myself I
really don't care, my 'server' runs X11 anyway.
