Project Idea – Nice web gallery for wikimedia commons

I contribute some of my photos to wikimedia commons.

Here is the list of files.
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:ListFiles/Tshrinivasan

It will be nice to see the images as a nice image gallery.
The current method of displaying images uploaded by a user is not so good.

We can get the images and details using the mediawiki api.
We can use “openphoto” to display images as it will take care of all the display part.

We have to create some code that adds mediawiki as a image source for openphoto.

required skills : PHP, API

Update me if any one is interested to do this project.
