I see what you mean.
It would be hard to accomplish this gallery view
without at least one column having a fixed width.
That could also be in ems, though, but that is not very usual as of
yet, I guess…
But a gallery view would be sure great
I could help with the code.
I’m a visual artist, but I know web technologies.
Is there a version control system for this or you just collaborate on
If so, just drop me a mail
