Release announcements: 2.2.6   2.2.5   2.2.4   2.2.3   2.2.2   2.2.1   2.2   2.1.2   2.1.1   2.1


There are four different types of packages you can download. Choose the one that is the most appropriate for you. If you accidentally download a package that is too small or too large, you can always replace it later.

Typical - The base application, 8 themes and a selection of popular modules. Enough to satisfy the demands of most Gallery users.

Full - The base application, 9 themes and 68 modules. Every cool feature we've got.

Minimal - The base application, 2 themes and 3 graphics toolkits. Everything you need to publish photos, and nothing more.

Developer - Same as the full package, except it includes all the developer tools so that you can work on improving the code.

If you download a package that has modules you don't want, you can uninstall the extra ones. If you choose a package that's too small, you can always install more modules later. It's totally safe to joyride a module for a while then uninstall it so feel free to experiment.

Preinstaller - This is a small application that will download and unpack Gallery2 for you. If you're on a slow connection or you use FTP, you may find this tool very useful. Read the preinstaller instructions for more details.

If you're upgrading from Gallery 2.1.x or older, you should download one of the packages (above) and unpack it on top of your existing version and then open up your Gallery in your web browser. Gallery will prompt you with an interactive web based upgrader which will walk you through the upgrade process.

If you already have Gallery 2.2.x, we provide patches and zip files containing just the changes to make your upgrade process faster and easier. Make sure to use these files only to upgrade from the exact version specified. If your version is not listed (such as a 2.2 Release Candidate) please download one of the packages above and follow upgrade instructions in README.html.


Gallery features come as separate modules. You can download and install modules to add more features to your Gallery, or you can disable features if you don't want to use them. In order to use a feature, you must install, configure (if necessary) and activate it. If you don't wish to use a feature, you can deactivate it.
