Looking for CMS centered around images

Im planning on starting an avatars website. I need a content management system that allows registered users to upload, rate, comment on avatars. Also I would like a way to prevent hotlinking.

The site will center around a gallery of avatars, but I havent found a true image gallery that allows me to do what Im planning.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Coppermine easily does all of those things you mentioned - although I address hotlinking through htaccess.

Since it sounds like your site might be fee based, or private, look into cpg-nuke, which has Coppermine installed with a fork of PHPnuke, or into Postnuke or PHPnuke with Gallery installed as a module. There are other CMSs out there, Mambo, Geeklog, XOOPS, Drupal, that will give you the membership upfront and allow you to install a gallery within.

have you looked at http://gallery.menalto.com/index.php ?

You could always ask me to program you a custom CMS for a small fee. :wink:
