It makes the content (albums, photos and movies) of a remote Gallery3 system directly available inside the KDEs local file hierarchy
Just enter "gallery3://my.gallery.domain/path-to-pictures/" in the location bar of for example dolphin or a "File open" dialog. This is the url you use to access your gallery3 system with a browser, except that the protocol (http or https) is replaced with gallery3 or gallery3s.
Prefer gallery3s in favour of gallery3 whenever possible (if you have working https access to your gallery) for using ssl encryption to access the gallery. This way sensitive information like your username, password and remote access key are protected by encryption whilst being sent over the internet.
If you want previews in form of thumbnails you have to enable those in dolphin, thumbnails are usually disabled for remote content due to bandwith usage:
Set the value under > Settings > Configure Dolphin > General > Tab Previews > Remote file above to something like 1MB
These thumbnails are cached locally by KDE, but it takes a while to generate them the first time depending on the size of the original files inside the remote Gallery3 system.
