Perhaps I'm just old-fashioned, but I love the simplicity of the file system as storage backend for my pictures.
I store them on a NAS and I run Picasa and Photoshop.
I'd like openphoto to act as a frontend and my existing set of folders and pictures. It can automatically scan the file system and create thumbnails and keep in sync with FS changes.
I do not like the idea of having to import (and duplicate!) my pictures.
For those already using other Google services, support for Google Drive in openphoto would be a plus. It's just another cloud storage option.282 votes
I'm unable to find this in the documentation so I am suggesting additional login choices (google+, twitter, linkedin, yahoo, etc.) for visitors.279 votes
All the installation instructions for openphoto i've seen so far heavily depended on unix / Command-Line savvy users.
Lets assume 1.) you are not one of those and 2.) you have a shared hosting account, where you would like to setup openphoto.
A simple package containing a php-based installer which you could upload to your ftp space and install es simple as open yourdomain.com/openphoto/install.php would be perfect.
Simply as wordpress does it with the 1-2-3 installer.247 votes
Another option for File System is to sync local filesystem with Amazon S3 for self hosted installs.
Currently the only options are:
Amazon S3 + Dropbox

I'd like to be able to store my photo's on Microsoft Skydrive, instead of Dropbox, Amazon S3, etc. Some API information: http://windowsteamblog.com/windows_live/b/windowslive/archive/2011/12/07/skydrive-apis-for-docs-and-photos-now-ready-to-cloud-enable-apps-on-windows-8-windows-phone-and-more.aspx125 votes

Raw photos (CR2, NEF) should be supported for viewing the images, and for converting to jpeg while using the raw photo as the source.
The jpeg should contain all EXIF data found in the photo.
This might be best implemented using a plugin architecture to cut down on driver/binary dependencies for those who don't require it.96 votes
Guest passes like flickr. I know signing up isn't very hard, but it's still a heck of a lot easier to just click a single link.93 votes

I am really excited about your software for Ubuntu.
However, your installation scripts look daunting to use! The standard Ubuntu repositories seem much easier to use. It would be nice if openphoto was available and updated in the Ubuntu repositories, and you told us about this on your website.
"Ubuntu One" is similar to Dropbox for sharing files. You get 5 GB for free but you can buy more.
Being able to store my photos on the Ubuntu cloud would be a plus.63 votes
Ability to go to fullscreen mode when viewing so that
- one photo fills entire screen and
- click to right or left side of the photo goes to previous or next photo.(Also keyboard shortcuts: left,right, esc).
- Cursor is hidden if the mouse is not moved.
- Slideshow feature so that no user input is required to change between photos
- Background can be chosen but should be either dark grey, black or white.
This way you can actually see the photos very well, which is the most important feature of the photo gallery.61 votes
