Components use zope.components to provide as much reusable as possible components.

First we have photo resources. Plone already manage this for you:

  • Folder and Large Plone Folder can contains Image

  • Topic can be criterized to list only Image

  • Link can be sources of photos throw and services.

Next you have the business component: IGallery. This interface is implemented at two levels:

  • As named adapter over IATLink to get photos from picasaweb or flickr.

  • As browserview to control the resource (@@gallery)

The picasaweb and flickr services let you embed a flash slideshow to display your photos. Views are already available to use those services:

  • @@gallery-picasaweb-slideshow

  • @@gallery-flickr-slideshow

But they are not integrated in the Plone UI.
