I am searching for a good photo gallery tool for use with the builder theme, but all of the plugins I have looked at...and I have looked at almost all of them on wordpress...have some problem for my purpose. If I was more knowledgeable about php and CSS, I might be able to make them fit, but I keep searching for the perfect out-of-the box solution for a really fabulous art gallery display.
In the meantime, I'm using in this first example: Billboard. It would work better if only Billboard scrolled. Here is an example: http://studio98b.dancingmud.net/bh1/. Problem...viewer has to scroll down to see all the thumbnails...would be good if could show only 4 thumbnails and then arrow to get next group. Also, this solution requires creating a page for each art work, which gets to be tedius with a large number of pieces. A solution that automatically builds the pages would work better.
Here is an example using plugin "Bitvolution Image Galleria" which I like because it uses the standard wordpress gallery and automatically builds the pages: http://dancingmud.net/house-gallery/
This would work better if I knew PHP and could modify the attachment page format that comes up when you click on the large image. Also, need to have more space and multiple lines for the captions under the pictures on the main gallery page
Anyway, I'm hoping your ithemes PhotoGallery-1-5 will work with Builder and will give me some really great tools for art websites for myself and my friends:

the photogallery themes are standalone WordPress themes, released before Builder was developed. They do not integrate in Builder. More on the themes here, including demo sites.
nextgen seems to be the weapon of choice for most photogallery sites, there are more here, and of course WordPress has it's own gallery functionality,
hope that helps, a bit,
