I need some input or advice from those of you who are more experience in web design and development. I have been working in the industry for 3-4 years or so and was recently approached by a friend of mine to go in with him on a business venture. If for nothing else, it is a means of income for me on the side and a portfolio piece.
All that said, the site will essentially allow users to login/register, allow them to upload images with information about the image (location, things/people in the image, etc) and allow for users to search and comment on the image to identify or give insight on the image.
I thought maybe Wordpress would be a good option but am not sure if this would be the greatest option. I am assuming a database would be needed to obviously store the images, user info, etc. but was hoping you guys could provide some good insight.
