This is my Gallery Site - I have created my own gallery scripts and Macro's - as no Confluence Plugins supports images in a filestructure.
2015-09-20: Changed input for makeThumbs.sh to key=value usage and added orientation magic into it
2015-01-04: Changed input to key=value usage
2014-01-16 : Upgraded to permanent multipage (1 for each subdir and 1 to include all), ThumbSize as command line argument and minor fixes to the code
2013-09-15 : Putting ThumbSize and DisplaySize in the macro call, so these can be changed without breaking older pages

Or use the one in Confluence:
Install the Software and packages needed
Config Atlassian CLI (Set username, password and URL in confluence.sh)
Config Tomcat to support symbolic links (see this currently unsolved issue regarding special UTF-8 characters)
Link from Confluence to the MediaRoot (here called /data/images) - The "media" in the link is used in the "me-image" macro, these must match if changed.
Create a Script directory and place the 3 scripts and the config.txt files into them
Edit the config.txt to fit Your installation
Create the User Macro me-image in Your Confluence installation (remember to set parameters ThumbSize and DisplaySize to the same as i config.txt)
Start adding pictures to Your installation using the updategallery.sh and optional refreshpages.sh scripts
All content (Pictures and Video) are place on the servers filesystem in a Tree Structure, from a Basic root (called MediaRoot in the config.txt file) - This Root is symlinked into the Confluence base Url
For each top directory, a subdirectory or one or more phrases, a collection of content can be placed on a Confluence Page with the updategallery.sh script
When the script runs, it travels an entire directory-structure and :
- Creates thumbnails for the content (image or video) in a subdirectory called something with "thumbs"
- Adds a macro onto the specified Confluence page to show (render) the content (image or video)
- Finally, saves the page into Confluence
Questions and Answers
Q: Is there a manuel maintenance between the config.txt and the me-image macro?
A: Yes, the ThumbSize and DisplaySize numbers must match in the file and macro, otherwise images will give a 404 Error
Q: My Thumbnail Image is not displayed?
A: Check the following:
- Tomcat Linking is allowed:
The server.xml file has to be changed adding the allowedLinked parameter:
- The Paths etc in the macro on the Confluence Page - does it exist in the filesystem
- Permissions on the filesystem
Q: Images are so slow...why?
A: This can be bandwith, server hardware, memory - or the DisplaySize parameter - hence how large an image that must be fetched. 800 is default.
Q: My image just opens in a new window, not popped up or via jQuery
