Image Module Galleries

The Image module has basic taxonomy-based image galleries. You configure galleries by selecting administer > image galleries (admin/image). The form for adding galleries (admin/ image/add) looks similar to the form for adding category terms, and with good reason. The Image module creates a vocabulary of categories to manage your galleries (see Chapter 2 for more on categories). You can build galleries hierarchically by assigning a parent in the Parent field and order them with the Weight field, just as with categories.

■ Note The gallery functions are dependent on the Taxonomy module. Make sure the Taxonomy module is enabled before trying to build galleries.

After you have configured the galleries, you can take a peek at what is going on behind the scenes by visiting the list of vocabularies: administer> categories (admin/taxonomy). You will see the gallery structure you created is really a vocabulary managed by the Taxonomy module.
