I forgot to talk to you about this - but the gallery2wiki plugin for 
media wiki looks pretty sweet. It does dynamic galleries based on the 
tags you add to photos. It seems pretty sweet:

I have used gallery before and it's not bad so I think this might be 
worth a try?

It's okay for writing up specification style documents eg having inline 
mockups in a spec or having a list of graphics for one specific purpose 
(e.g. the release artwork mockups). But sometimes it would be nice to 
have a galley of all the artwork of a specific style, e.g., to be able 
to tag all artwork that is a banner and be able to have a dynamic 
gallery of all banners would be awesome! Or to have one gallery of all 
the mockups and iterations of one particular piece we're working on 
would also be helpful.
