Ok...so I am revamping a site I have so that the front page is all feeds....it is a nightlife site with listings, forums, galleries, etc. I have no trouble sucking info from text based listings and forums to the front page using something like FeedSweep...but I want to syndicate some images as well from the gallery.

Gallery from sourceforge offers the XML...I just need something that will read the content (the thumbnail images in this case) on my front page...most everything I am finding doesnt handle images properly....or has no obvious support for it. Any ideas?

Here is my XML

Just from looking at the way Flickr outputs the images to their RSS feeds, they include the <img> html tag in the RSS like this:
<description>
<img src="http://www.example.com/photos/example.jpg" /><br />
</description>

Your feed doesn't and I think that's why the items only show as text.

I don't know how you'll go about generating the html in the RSS, but maybe you can modify the settings for your RSS file.
Hope that helps put you on the right track anyway.
