Photo Uploads

Image handling in Drupal has long been a distributed effort between several cooperating (or competing) modules. The Image module (http://drupal.org/project/image) was the universal solution in Drupal 4.6 and 4.7, but with the advent of CCK, several new modules appeared that leveraged this new, more flexible system. Because the Drupal community's development trends are headed toward websites built around CCK and Views, we're going to build our site around this newer approach, building on the basic functionality of CCK and Views.

ImageField (http://drupal.org/project/imagefield) is a module that provides a reusable image upload field to CCK, which we'll be able to use to upload our photos.
