Hi all. I'm new to Radiant and want to use it on a simple project I'm doing for one of my brothers, a graphic designer. The site is approximately 5 pages (Home, About, Design, etc..). Each of the pages will have a bit of text that should be editable. The home page will have a brief 6 image gallery of his best work while both the photography and design pages will include more in depth portfolios.
Essentially, since I'm new to Radiant, I'd like to get a head start by learning which extensions and systems of thought would work best for such a project. Once the site is done, my brother will be managing the upkeep of content. Pointers to good extensions for: galleries, photo upload, code editing, etc would be greatly appreciated. I'm a programmer and am very fond of writing my code in a rich environment with syntax highlighting and other helps. It's going to be a bit of a stretch to just use white and black, so if any of you have found a better way, let me know. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
