Looking for gallery add-on

Permalink
I'm thinking about rebuilding a site using C5, but it hinges on whether or not I can find a way to easily do a certain task. It's a historic site and the majority of it is basically a collection of photo and doc archives. I really need to automate the importing of images into galleries as much as possible. The way I would like to have each page, is a single thumb to the left, and then a fairly large text caption area to the right of each. Enough to have a few hundred characters min. In other words, I'd like that all showing on the thumb page. This seems to be a rare feature. I've looked through all the gallery add-ons and I don't think I've found one that can do that. Most are just focused on the visual orientation of the pics, or maybe just allow a caption drawn from the file name. Also, I need to be able to dump a batch of pics in at one time. Has anybody seen anything like this?

If you can code a little, that would be fairly easy to do with my Touch Gallery add-on
https://www.concrete5.org/marketplace/addons/touch-gallery1...

It uses filesets so you just batch upload all your images to the file manager, you add them all at once to a file set and you select the file set when adding the gallery to the page.

As for the longer text, you can add a file attribute to your images and make it a WYSIWYG text editor. Then you make the gallery use that attribute for your text. That's the part where you need a little bit of code. Probably about 5 lines of code.
