The gallery client is kind of a pain to get working in Fedora but once you do it makes it very easy to batch upload photos to the server. We could make albums for different wallpaper themes (eg a nature album, an abstract album, etc) and within each album you can rate individual photos... could be a good way of picking the best 5 for each or however many we want to package for each grouping.

Like the gallery Idea but why go through all the trouble of package the
backgrounds and ship a large set of images ( Mb )

Why not file an RFE against the application in the *DE that handle
background settings that will be able to browse and preview those images
from the online gallery which the end user can then select and set as
his default background?

This would save bandwith and the needed packaging hazzle..

The end user would also be able to preview the backgrounds online in his
browser and right click the image and select to set as his default


One of my gods has a hammer your's was nailed to a cross
You do the math!
