I am planning my new website with Drupal 7. The site will have two core features: blog and photos. Blog is no problem and for photos I know how to implement most of my requirements. Except one ;-)
I plan to add a content-type "Photos" (or "Media"). Each photo will be stored in its content. These contents are categorized using a taxonomy so each photo can be in multiple terms (aka albums). For example a whale can be in "Underwater", "Big-fish" and "Salt water". Views with contextual filters will render the "album"-views etc. So far no problem.
What we don't know how to do yet is bulk-upload of images. Any idea would be great. If there is a gallery module or profile that handles that taxonomy thing / dynamic albums it would be an option to.
Idea: Maybe I can define a "Bulk-Upload" content type which is for uploads only. This conent-type has an "image" field set to "unlimited". When creating such a content a Rule will be triggered which creates multiple "Images" contents for it and deletes the "Bulk-Upload" content afterwards. ...sounds possible but a little tricky.
Thanks and cheers, Marc
