I think I spotted a bug. What is the expected behaviour when an individual who is not a member of a group wants to comment on an image? At the moment they get the option to comment but it comes up with an error. I think if they are not able to comment on the image then they should not get the option.

I think when you are at gallery level and you press edit, it should allow you to edit the gallery settings – Name and description, as well as being able to edit the same for all the files in the gallery.

I was also thinking about how I’d like to see the various galleries viewed inside the group.
What I would like to see is new group menu options of Gallery, Video, Audio and Files, from the group homepage for groups where all four types have been enabled.
From within these main sections, I would like the group manager to be able to decide whether to have a single Gallery for example, or to have multiple galleries. If they choose to have a single gallery, then the gallery directory will be the gallery and it would automatically take its name from the group name. This would be the default setting and would be great for most groups.
For groups that are more advanced the admin could choose to enable multiple galleries and the group/gallery page would display the various galleries created for that group in order to navigate to the images.
This way you keep the focus of the group to be the groups home page, I think it would create a better overall look and feel for most groups, which do not need multiple galleries and the layout would be less confusing for users, who in my world want to the the options easily laid out, ie form the home page seeing where the videos are, where the photo’s are etc as in links they simply click on. For most groups having to go to galleries then see these options is an additional click that is not needed.
Also, I would give the group admin the ability to change the names of the gallery options, so one group might like to call its file gallery the “Library” as an example.

Yes that seems to work.
I notice that when you are setting up a group the enable gallery setting is not enabled by default, however if you edit the settings for a group that does not have a group this setting is automatically clicked.
I personally think that it should be the opposite, it should bed set as yes by default for when you first set up the group and should take its setting from what was first configured when you edit a groups settings i.e. it should be set to yes for groups which have a gallery and set to no for groups where it was not configured in the first place.
An additional feature you might like to consider is the ability for a group admin to choose who can create new galleries and also who can upload files. This should really apply on a per gallery basis. I say this because you have included the ability to upload files. This is great, but some groups I have enable all to upload photos but only admin to upload files. Also group admins may not wish for their members to be able to create galleries.
I also think the global setting of which types of galleries to allow should be cascaded to group admin, so they can choose which types of galleries to have, who can create those galleries and who can upload to those galleries once created. I think at the very least there should be a global setting where site admin would choose the default as to who can create galleries in groups.
I notice there is a new setting of Sitewide Gallery, what does this do? Sounds interesting. Right now it seems to be the same as the buddypress gallery page.

What I noticed is that at the end of group creation I’m getting the error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function mpp_group_is_gallery_enabled() in /homepages/14/d69811276/htdocs/clickandbuilds/CanvaKalaTest/wp-content/plugins/mediapress-master/core/activity/mpp-activity-template.php on line 21
