Gallery2:Theme Ideas

From Gallery Codex

Here are some cool websites using products other than Gallery. We should create themes that look like this!

http://fotki.com/ -> The second most-popular image hosting site after Flickr. Has a UI that is several orders of magnitude more functional than Flickr's.
http://dbowman.com/photos/ 
Very clean template for MovableType (someone is working on this).
http://zimbra.com/ -> hosted demo 
AJAX based email webclient, great usability, desktop look and feel
http://my.opera.com/community/albums/index.dml?show=rat , http://my.opera.com/zielski/albums/showpic.dml?album=215&picture=825 
Very clean photo page

Very nice / fast (server and navigation) flash theme (and great pics!)
http://rebelpixel.com/photos/ogie-bday-2005/ 
don't differentiate album / photo view, show a large photo on the left, small thumbnails on the right. similar to the PG theme. but a lot of users request a theme that doesn't have the album view. they want to go directly to the photos.
