I am relatively new to Drupal and am about to develop a tribute site. It will have a few informational pages but it's main focus is photographs.
There are about 150 photographs which have been sorted into about 10 categories. I have these in raw form, and also in a powerpoint deck. My preference would be to display the photos individually, but I'll use the powerpoint if it proves too difficult.
Ideally users would be able to navigate to a category of photos, then flick through them one at a time, or 'play' a slideshow. Also, if it was not too difficult, I'd like to annotate some or all of the photos.
Where should I start with this? I have installed Drupal 7 but see there is a wide range of modules and approaches for displaying photos. I have experience with CSS, jQuery and PHP...
Any pointers much appreciated!
