Update BP Gallery is available for download. Checkout here for more details.
If you are registering specifically for BP-gallery, please do not proceed with the paid membership, until this plugin is released. As pointed in one of the comments, I do not want to create any ill feeling here. So If you are registering only for this plugin, please wait and let me release it first.
Update: Yes, if you wish you can join Buddydev premium now, as a beta is available in forums(only accessible to BuddyDev premium members). Today, Feb 5, 2010, I will put a more detailed post with the plugin here around 7-9 AM PST. So if you want to be the first one to test gallery. Join Buddydev premium now.

Update: Due to some improvements as suggested by mercime and Bowe, The release is delayed by 1-2 days now. I am sorry, But I need to make sure everything works perfectly before going live and the most important thing for me is ensuring high performance and better code. So pardon me for this inept step, I look forward to update you again tomorrow, if I am able to complete the code refraction and a few major changes I wish to see in the gallery today. After all, I said It is ultimate, so It has to be ultimate with features :). If you have any suggestions for the features, please leave a comment today, so I may be able to include it before going for the first beta.
Bp Gallery is the ultimate photo gallery plugin for your buddypress site. Currently, there exists no comparable gallery plugin at the moment for buddypress. You will love the features. Let me point now.

I will show examples to integrate the gallery with at least 2 slideshow scripts, so your user gallery can be viewed as normal as well as sideshow. Also, I will be providing ready made templates for bp-default(the new bp-default for bp 1.2) and the old bp-sn-parent. Those are just the bonus stuff 🙂 and this is not all the features list, I will update this post again tomorrow with more features, Once I am done with the gallery, documentation/demo.
Update: date:December, 30, 2009
We are almost there with the gallery.Because of the requests I got via email and comments. I have decide to extend the version 1.0. It will now incorporate following features too
- Gallery Can have multiple admins/users who can upload files
- Gallery can be associated with Buddypress Gropus
- You can create audio/video/image gallery
- It can be extended to add any type of media(It may be your doc file or what ever) using custom plugins
- A gallery can be associated with any entity be it group/event or what ever(Group support is inbuilt)
- You can upload files as usual or just use links for the gallery media content
- High level of privacy settings
- and there are a few more options which will allow its wide adoption
If you are looking for a demo, It will be available by 1st January 2009, and The gallery will be available for public download then.
A few other features, I am working, but Not sure will be able to accommodate or not in version 1.0
- Zip upload (say you upload a zip file containing images and It will be automatically added to the gallery)
- Image tagging(The difficult part is detection of correct face/object though)
- Rating of media(allow rating by other users)
- and if you want, let me know in comments, I will go for a few more features.
