Yet another programmer blogging about code

NextGEN Gallery has a shortcode nggtags that lets you dynamically build galleries and albums from images that have tags; Photocrati talk about it briefly on their working with albums page. One thing the shortcode doesn’t do, however, is let you specify a different gallery template for displaying the tagged images. Never being one to shrink from a challenge, my latest release of NextGEN Download Gallery offers a solution.

Ok, so we’re allowed to have one (1) size option for thumbnails in all galleries, and they can be either cropped square, or not. This is my only option?

But what if I want to have a gallery page of all of the lovely staff for my clients website, and their photos have been sensibly taken in portrait format, I do NOT want the thumbnails for this gallery to be cropped, that would be just wrong. And then there is to be a page with a photo gallery of the staff picnic where people have enjoyed taking happy snaps in both landscape AND portrait formats because that is what suits, so I need these thumbnails cropped.
