Gallery 3 Project Modules and Themes
If you are looking for nice, free PHP based solution to host your collection of images or photos, consider Menalto Gallery 3 Project. As you can see from the name it is now in 3rd iteration of development cycle and going strong.
I went this way few years ago myself when found Gallery v.2 to be nice solution for my own Photo Gallery.
At first, simple consumer, I become involved with development of v.3 of the Gallery and since worked creating many Modules and few Themes for my own use.
This is a custom theme built from ground up, adding many extra options. Supports many color and frame packs. I have tried minimize use of JS as much as possible shifting focus on proper CSS instead.
- Tested/designed for 1280×1024 screen resolution.
- DIGG style paging in Albums and Individual Photo pages.
- Requires ShadowBox or Fancybox module for image preview. Support for slideshow mode.
- Over 30 options provided via theme’s Admin page.
- Color Packs support. Included: greydragon, slateblue, wind, carbon, blackhawk.
- Frame Packs support. Included: greydragon, android, book, darkglass, iphone, iphoto, simple, slide
- Download and unpack package into Gallery’s themes folder. Please make sure “greydragon” folder is not duplicated.
- Login as Admin into your Gallery 3 instance and navigate to Admin\Appearance\Theme Choice
- Activate GreyDragon theme
- It is advised to visit Admin section of the theme and review provided options at Admin\Appearance\Theme Options
Supported browsers: Internet Explorer 7/8/9/10, Firefox 3.x, Opera, Chrome
Requires either Fancybox or Shadowbox modules to be installed and activated for popup-style image preview.

When working on optimizing my site the following information did help improving it further:
Long standing GD Theme user. The GD Theme is very user friendly. I was able to create a fantastic gallery for my website using some of the many, many, options GD Theme offers. Thanks for the hard work and dedication to your theme and for allowing us the opportunity to use it. Gene

I've used your Greydragon theme ever since I switched to using Gallery3. It looks very slick; it does everything that I want; it is easy to customise the appearance with its many options; image preloading makes it faster than other themes; the author continually develops it in response to feature requests; and he actively supports it. A very satisfied user and donor.
First I’m new to G3. I was wanting to append my forum with a gallery and after doing a lot of looking and testing I settled on G3.
I tried all the themes I could find on the page at the mothership (Gallery homepage). I settled on graydragon. It’s so close to my forum’s default page it’s spooky.
It’s clean and neat, and so simple to use. Keep up the great work.
I just wish I could find a theme based on anime. Wishful thinking on my part…
I’m a huge fan of this theme. I’ve got more than 90,000 pictures in my gallery3 running on a Ubuntu 11.10 desktop. It’s only for family photos. The GD theme is by far the most polished theme, easy to use and it’s still being developed! The theme options made me feel like a kid in a candy shop. Thanks for a great theme and keep up the good work!
