Milestone 1: Project Focus

Main Problems

Using Gallery can't be said as a very nice experience. The installation process, the functions it provides, are complex to grasp and complicated to use. The main problems are as follows:

  • The interface is not user-friendly.
  • Numerous features are rarely used.
  • Know little about their users.

Intallation requirements--Very complex!!!

Current user interface--Powerful features but many rarely used!
