Node_Gallery is one of several modules that work together in Drupal to produce a useful gallery of images.
Node_Gallery requires Imagecache so set up Imagecache before Node_Gallery. Installation and configuration of Imagecache is described in Imagecache.
ImageAPI provides an image processing service to Imagecache. Install ImageAPI before Imagecache.
- Install ImageAPI.

You can set up a
Gallery Relationship. By the look of it you select Gallery in the first list then Gallery Image in the second list. After you save the relationship, you are offered a page with dozens of options. I used mostly the defaults.
Node Gallery has only the following two permissions. You will often want add on modules to restrict access to a gallery by user or role.
- administer node gallery
- view node gallery
