Gallery app: get current album category and display related albums

Anyone knows how to do it?

<?php perch_gallery_albums(array(
                    'template' => 'my_template.html',
                    'category' =>  [[CURRENT ALBUM CATEGORY]],
)); ?>

I don't believe Gallery has support for categories.

Looks a must for further versions, any kind of portfolio website need them. Then I have to use Blog instead...

You can implement categories on Gallery, but it doesn't support the newer centralised Categories app.

Then I have to install Categories App? Witch are the differences?

No, it doesn't support the Categories app.

Drew, can you tell me the difference between Categories add-on and centralised?

There's no categories add-on that I'm aware of. Perch itself has a centralised Categories app that handles categories for all core functionality and modern add-ons. Really old add-ons like Gallery aren't set up to use that, but can implement their own category functionality.
