image gallery - filtering on metadata
The Image Gallery webpart would be much better if you could filter what images it shows from one or more metadata columns.
We have a library of over 500 images which are based on the countries we operate in and the services we provide. I would like to see options for either...
1. Allow us to create a page for each service and country and display just thos images or...
2. Allow the users to dynamically filter the Image Gallery directly on the page (meaning only one page is required)
The latter would be far better as it would mean less work for me (a bonus!) but would be more practical for the users
Further to Simon's suggestion, metadata (e.g. Title, description which are OOB metadata) recorded in file properties in the library where images are stored should automatically populate image details when presented in gallery. It's crazy that this information must be re-entered manually for every picture included in the gallery.
Ideally, the image gallery needs to work same/similar to document library or list web part, but using the cool gallery layout options rather than those available in doc library and list web part
