      Galleries are top-level data to organize information. Each gallery has its own categories / attributes / tags / albums / photos.

     Tips: some people may ask “why we need gallery?” Well, gallery is mainly used to organize attributes/categories. For example, if you use Cross Photo Gallery to publish both cars and animals, you may need create different attributes for cars and animals, and you also need different categories to organize them.  Gallery lets you solve this problem easily. 

                                                       P7 - Photo gallery

      2.3.2 Disable unwanted fields

Photo has some built-in fields, like author/source/image,etc. You can disable them If you don't’ need.  If a field is disabled, then it will not display on edit interface which belong to current gallery. And of course, it will also disappear in photo list and detail module too.       

        2.3.3  Customize your own fields  
        Photo attributes (e.g. "Camera" or "Model") are used to create inter-dependent photo variations.  After create an attribute, you can then enter specific attribute values for an individual photo (e.g. "Nokia", "Leveno", "Ibm").

                                  P9 -  Customize attributes.  
   Below is a list of data types you can specify for attribute:
   A.  Basic data like  string / int / decimal /  date time /  date /  time /  Boolean / currency.
   B.  Special data like  email /  image / url / text html.

    You can specify a list of value for attribute, user can choose one of them while edit photos.  After creation, these fields will be treated the same as built-in fields. You can add/edit their value, display them on photo list module and  detail module.
