In this video you are creating nodes that are the gallery, right? and then attaching pictures to the node in a field? so, when you want to add a new photo to a gallery you would edit the node (some gallery) and add a new photo? am i understanding that right?

Yes, that is exactly correct. I actually prefer to use a taxonomy and build views based on those taxonomies (to build a "rolling" gallery), but building them as a single node allows for an easier edit of what is in the gallery for some people. A bonus for this is to add a node reference CCK field and tie the gallery to an event or other content type, pulling the gallery into that field with a similar view and block. Thanks!
