Where is my gallery?

I love Drupal. I love Gallery. I absolutely hate them together. I’m so frickin’ tired of trying to get these two to work together properly. The module is slow and flaky and I hate it. I would love to use someone like a Flickr or photobucket to manage the photos and then have embedded galleries on my Drupal site. I guess I’ll keep searching through the hundreds of modules for this kind of functionality, but if anyone knows a better way to have a Drupal site with an intergraded and advance gallery, please let me know.
