unfortunately, the seems to be No collections on the Naglo Quadruplane. What 
a shock.

>      - each image can have its own caption text
>      - images are organized by "Collections"
>      - anybody can add notes to an image or a collection - it is not 
> restricted to Admin (I am stealing Wikipedia's idea here).
>      - images can be linked to more than one subject (eg, several photos

>  I am in the process of populating the data, and so far the database
