Organizing Images into a Table

I'm a really new user of Foswiki....And would like to organize images into an organized table or something that resembles a square/rectangle.

I successfully installed and enabled the ImagePlugin but found the organization limited to the align="..." tag. So I tried out the ImageGalleryPlugin which created nice thumbnails of the images but just rowed them up and produced a slide show type screen when I clicked on one of the images, complete with forward and back arrows. Then I started with the TablePlugin, and since I've done a little HTML in the past, I thought I could just insert the link for the image within the WikiSyntax |...| for table cell, but that just caused the image to be displayed in front of the table and not at all neatly in the third column where I had wanted to put it.

This is what I want to be able to do:

1. Organize WikiUsers images in a nice employee gallery a.) without having to manually link every single person into the gallery and b.) have it look nice in a sort of structured table, instead of a never-ending scrolling nightmare

2. I'd like to be able to choose individual images from different Topics (I can do this with ImagePlugin) and have them displayed in a nice table in a separate Topic document

I'm not much of a programmer but there's got to be a way to call "all profile images" from web WikiUsers and have it generate a table.... Please advise smile

For the second one, is it the ImagePlugin or TablePlugin or something else that I should be using so that the images display in a movable compact unit like a table?

Thanks in advance!

Display of user images is included in PersonalInfoAddOn (topic PersonalInfoFaceBook).

Another way to show pictures from a set of topics is using AttachmentListPlugin.

Problem with tables is that you need to know how many columns you need, and format the result with this number of columns. This is currently not supported by these extensions.
