I want to create a collection of photo galleries where each gallery has it's own main page with thumbnails, and clicking on each thumbnail takes you to the node for that thumbnail with the full-size version of the image as well as next/prev links to go to other node pages within that same gallery. I don't want to use colorbox or lightbox, all node-based per image entry per gallery.
My current plan is to use taxonomy to specify the different galleries, use views to create the individual gallery homepage, and use a custom content type for each image's node. I'm not sure how to get the next/previous links on the node page to only go to nodes within that specific gallery, and couldn't find a module upon my initial search.
I'll be using Drupal 7. Are there any modules that would do this, or is there a better approach to achieving the result in a way other than what I'm planning?
