InnoDB for Image Gallery Tables

Dear all,

 

For photo gallery tables (named: gallery_album, gallery_image, gallery_relation), I have seen a recommendation to use InnoDB engine in preference to MyISAM. I thought MyISAM would be the choice for all tables but tables for transactions. Do you agree with the recommendation to using InnoDB for photo gallery tables and why?

The fact that InnoDB supports transactions and foreign keys and MyISAM does not is enough for me to always use InnoDB. The table-level locking that MyISAM does has also brought applications to a halt, where many people are waiting to write to a particular table that one person is selecting data from even though they are working with different rows. MyISAM still locks the entire table.
