I'm closing this issue for now because from my point of view the core issue seems to be sufficiently dealt with.

We now have a new website for kphotoalbum.org. Closing this task :)

That's not too bad! Needs a bit of work, but I think it's a solid foundation. I'll hand this over to VDG's icon design pros now. :)

@johanneszarl I think its almost the new website is almost done, I just need to fix one bug in the theme. Not sure I can finish it before the end of next week. Sorry for the delay, I'am quite busy with life and other KDE related stuff :(

I've improved the texts a bit (see merge request), removing some paragraphs as I saw fit.
It's on KDE's svn server: svn+ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/home/kde/trunk/www/sites/kphotoalbum
Apart from that, I currently have no idea (yet) how that Jekyll thingy works … but probably, the existing PHP code of the news page could be used here?!
Unsplash is not okay :(
The KPA demo database could also be used, to be accessed via kphotoalbum --demo. The images are also a bit dated, but I think we won't have a copyright problem with it.
@tleupold Okay. But i reeaalllyyy have no idea, how i can convert the news site...
I never used KPhotoAlbum, but it looks like very similar to Gwenview. You can view a images in KPA and Gwenview.
Like you can view files with LibreOffice Writer's "open" dialog and Dolphin.
It's very nice that somebody volunteers to rework the site. It's definitely dated. I cared about it the last few years, but I only worked on it under the hood and never touched the design … the most important thing is the News section I think where we announce releases etc. The "Getting involved" part is nice when it comes to the active and former developers, but I don't know if we need the rest here. Perhaps, one should simply advice somebody who wants to join us (a rare case ;-) to log in on our Freenode channel and simply talk with (one of) us. Same for "Testimonials", I'm not sure if we need this. As of "Documentation", I think the only really relevant thing is the "3 Minute Tour" to show what we have/can do, but it definitely needs a makeover. The rest can probably be linked, but the wiki stuff on KDE's servers is most probably also a bit out of date (we simply lack the manpower …)
Exactly! :). I see no Reason to stop supporting KPA.
@KonqiDragon: Seems like you never used KPA (or thought about what you're writing here). It's not "old", it's actively developed and up-to-date. And it serves a complete different purpose than Gwenview. Gwenview is a viewer, KPA is a tagging and archiving program. Don't compare apples and oranges.
It seems like KPhotoAlbum is made for a different usecase than gwenview. KPhotoAlbum seems more about managing and tagging photos than gwenview, which is more like a basic viewer with a few editing features.
Why do KDE need to support the old KPhotoAlbum when we have a modern Gwenview? Let's just stop supporting KPhotoAlbum.
@ognarb Anyway it would be great, to get some help whit the Screenshots.

The text will need some minor correction. For example the default categories were: Persons, Locations, and Keywords and are now Event, Places, People and Token.
@johanneszarl okay, i will do it.
