    I've been searching online and can't seem to find any photo gallery type message boards. Basically, it's a message board but instead of users posting messages they can upload photos.

    Anyone know of one? I'm looking to install one on my server.

    Well this forum allows uploading images, so that's a solution. Unless you're wanting purely photo messages and no text allowed. That would seem odd though.

    I happen to be a fan of Flickr, is that the kind of framework you're looking for, i.e. a social networking site with emphasis on photos that also happen to support user comments? If so...

    One excellent product is Menalto's "Gallery" 1.5.8 which can be integrated seamlessly within PHPBB2, one of the most popular forums out. Download the integration zip files here after downloading Gallery. Very impressive looking.

    If you have PHP and alot of time on your hands to customize a proprietary solution that actually uses Flickr's API to save your disk space and bandwidth, try this.

    ...if not, no clue, sorry!
