There is nothing really "excellent" to say (Except it's a free extension, of course). You have basics options, and that's why i'm excepting with that kind of extension.
However, there are some problems. There isn't basics transition effect (Like a fade effect), not a great problem, but it got my attention. In fact the real problem for me is the way that extension shows titles and text of an article/item. It's really not highlighted. You can still read titles and texts, but on my website, pictures as far bigger than the text area, and it decrease their visibility. The readmore button has the same problem.
That's a pity, but it doesn't make this extension a bad extension ;)
I resolve using images with quality and works great.
Have an option that is great, in K2 If I put the Item future, this module automatically create the slide show. Was the only I find that do that. Save me a lot of work.
Thank you Skyoftech team. If all goes well I will donate. Thank you
