Also, don't forget step 3 in the readme.txt which checks for product galleries.

Phil,

After an item is sold instead of DELETE from the store it is better for SEO to leave it there, but then you can't DISABLE or HIDE it (it will be invisible to the public). So will your X-Gallery work like this: after sold, transfer it to the gallery by changing the CATEGORY from "STORE ITEMS" to "GALLERY ITEMS" (those are custom labels) and also to remove all the labels that a visitor would associate (confuse) this item with a store stock item, such as (take a look at the attached screenshot):

REMOVE or rather REPLACE:

1. PRODUCTS label replace with EXHIBITS label
2. PRODUCT CODE: replace with "GALLERY CODE" label
3. "Set your own price" text replace with "custom label text" or REMOVE it
4. "Set your own price! The price for this product...." - REMOVE or REPLACE with custom text of my own
5. "Out of stock" label replace with custom label or REMOVE it.
6. If possible without an unreasonable cost involved to include a Google Adsense banner (any banner) on the final enlarged pop-up that displays the exhibit/product in its maximum size.

I wouldn't use this gallery for your purposes.

Can't you just disable inventory tracking so that out of stock products still display?

You can use smarty code to show/hide content when the products quantities are set to zero.

Disabling inventory tracking for my shop is like killing one useful feature in favour of another one. I would rather have a tiny bit separation between stock and gallery or rather photo album functionality.

Recently after some research I realised that I may need something more like a Photo Album rather than a Gallery, since Gallery just displays a bunch of photos next to each other while Photo album has a lot of text around each photo and is more informative almost like a multi-blog where each blog page represents one gallery item.

Regarding "You can use smarty code to show/hide content when the products quantities are set to zero." — I am yet to find out or learn what that is and how to do it, if it is possible at all with my set of mind and skill.

Code:
{if $product.avail eq 0} this is out of stock {/if}
Once a product has sold, you could move them to a separate category (that acts like an archive), for which you could have custom catagory and product page templates for.

Loads of ways of doing it. I don't think you need any kind of gallery or photo album for the job. Just a few templates will need adding/tweaking.

That's what I do, I move sold items to a newly created "Gallery" category and this is what it looks like (attached screenshot):

I could help you out with that. It probably wouldn't take long or cost a lot. You'd just have to map out how you'd like the archive category and product pages laid out visually.
