    I'm looking to build a photo-centric community, with members just uploading photos and commenting/rating. Perhaps placing tags as well.

    Anyone has any idea of any good scripts? I've found the Board THeme of SocialEngine good:


    But that's it so far.

    Any ideas?

    Yeah well I still want to do it, that's why I'm asking for any ideas for scripts.

    Usually, when a website or app is as large as Instagram, there are hundreds of clone software tools out there. Did you use a search engine?

    I think this will help - http://bit.ly/12X5aOx

    I'm not looking for an instagram clone but thank you for your very helpful comments.

    Are you looking for something to integrate with xenforo or just a standalone site with a single script meant for photo sharing?

    Although forum integration would be nice, I'm just hunting around for standalone scripts at this point :)

    Don't know if it will do exactly what you want, but have you checked out CPG (Coppermine Gallery)? It's can have themes designed for it.
    I have a simple one set up at http://tdperry.us

    Well I ask for this reason.

    I have been slacking in checking out addons lately being that when I am at the computer now a days I am trying to write my own code. However, recently someone (two people actually) pointed me to look at Chris Deeming's media gallery addon and I would think that this would cover what you have described as what you are looking for in functionality.

    I am sure there is a bunch of scripts out there and if I spent some time looking for one I am sure I could find a nice one, however if you plan on having it integrated into xenforo at a later time you will have either be a coder or hire one and I am also pretty sure that it will cost you more than it would to just get that above addon.

    I searched this and pretty much all of the scripts that look decent cost more than the addon so I have a hard time looking for and recommending a script unless for some reason you really just want a standalone script.

    Thanks to you both for your thoughts - I've actually used Coppermine in the past myself, and it's a very good gallery system, I'm just trying to figure out something that would have more "social" feeling and functionality into it. I've looked around in the past for Coppermine custom theme designers but didn't find anything.

    Chris' gallery add-on is an interesting suggestion, I've already bought it for my main site but I'm waiting for user albums and importers before I can use it, but it might be worth a shot along with some customizations and/or stripped down version of the forums :mrgreen:
