How is this different from the Image Galleries module?
There is another module with a similar name: "Image Galleries"
How are these two modules different?
A: Well, the "Image Galleries" module is associated with the Profile
where as this module "User Photo Albums" is associated with the User
, and that's an important distinction.
The User Photo Albums
is similar to the User Playlists
module in that it allows the user to create collections of photos that he/she is interested in even though those photos are on other peoples profiles.
So where the 'Image Gallery' module allows you to upload your images to your profile, the 'User Photo Albums'
module allows you to collect lists of photos you find around the site on other peoples profiles
into interesting lists.
The 'User Photo Albums'
module requires the 'Image Gallery'
module to be active so that there are images available to collect.
