Authentication on Albums (and sub-albums)

I know this is still a new project and such, but in my opinion I would really like to see two more features added into it (at some point).
1) the ability to restrict albums to roles so that only people with those roles can view the photo album and the photos inside the album.
2) the ability to create sub-albums so I can do something like "Family/My Birthday/Photo1.jpg" etc...

Otherwise from what I see about the improvements and the photo gallery I think it totally rocks. Here is to wishing you guys well in getting merged in with the Core BlogEngine project!

We definately plan on improving security and what to introduce a common model that allows anything to be secured correctly. That we we can implement subscriber only contentm individual content, etc.

We want it to apply to everything - posts, photos, pages, etc.

i've created a work item for the security item - thanks for the feedback.

We have an existing work item for sub-albums - we will get to it one day!

It would be really neat for the security item to use the RolesProvider that BlogEngine is already using. That way if people (like me) switch away from the BE roles provider and use the ASPNETSQLProvider we can continue using that.

Just my random thoughts.
