Don't count views if the user is the owner of the items.
Prevents Gallery from counting views if the user is the owner of the item. There is also a setting for the admin user not to be counted as well.
This module may be downloaded from the Gallery codex here.
To install, extract the "stop_owner_counts" folder from the zip file into your Gallery 3 modules folder.
Afterwards log into your Gallery web site as an administrator and activate the module in the Admin -> Modules menu.
Go to admin -> settings -> stop owner counts; and select the settings you desire.
That is it.
Needs the latest GIT version as of this writing.
