I think there has been a discussion on this already, try searching this forum for "wordpress".

I don't understand how your search could have ended up in some user's profile ;D

Do you want similar themes for both  like http://swatisani.net/wp/ and http://swatisani.net/pics/ OR you want to stick CPG completely inside WP

I successfully integrated Coppermine into my Wordpress blog.  It's quite simple, but making it match your theme requires some hacking and CSS knowledge. 
Here's the link to my blog: http://www.publichealthcenter.com/blogs/clay
Click on the Gallery link on the right, just below the calendar, to get into Coppermine, or, scroll down and click on a picture. 

I used the integration hack from this site (http://blog.idahocline.info/index.php/archives/2004/08/25/plugin-psngallery2-version-131-available-for-download/).

My goal was to drop most of the spare interface graphics and to make it look like it's part of my blog.  The hack from above hooks pictures from Coppermine into my blog posts. 

I started by using the HardWired theme and modifying it.  The header uses this random image script (http://photomatt.net/scripts/randomimage), which is currently setup to pull from the same source as my blog, but could easily be integrated into the theme, to pull from images in the gallery.  In all, the integration took me about 3 hours.

I did make the title of the gallery link back to the blog, for the sake of consistency.

I didn't really run into any major issues -- in fact, as long as you have access to phpMyAdmin, you're good to go.

It's not a perfect implementation, but it's close enough for me.  I'll probably tweak a few things, here and there, but for the most part, I'm done.

You could easily integrate Coppermine into any Wordpress style.  Just spend a few hours tweaking a theme to match the WP style.
