- preset slideshow configurations.
- preset overlay configurations.
- automatic browser language detection
- enhanced JCE plugins

Highslide JS is a fabulous javascript thumbnail viewer written by Torstein Hønsi. It is highly configurable and its uses are limited only by your imagination.

Highslide JS for Joomla exposes all of the flexibility of Highslide JS through a clear and concise configuration screen and JCE editor dialogs. The intent is to allow anyone, regardless of their skill level, to take full advantage of all that Highslide JS has to offer while minimizing, as much as possible, the need to get down to hardcore HTML coding.

Incompatible with JCE 2.x

Posted on 26 July 2011

Probably the easiest out of the box to use solution for popup images within an article for JCE. Unfortunately, the latest release of JCE 2.0 is incompatible with this component! A shame!

Indeed! This extension works perfect in my project site. Thank you very much... you made my day!

This extension is incredibly powerful and deep. A little daunting at first, but the documentation is plentiful and is thorough.

The forum is helpful and tracking down any issues that may come up.

The support from the author is outstanding. They were incredibly helpful and patient.

It may take a bit to get your head around all the features available, but once you get it up and running, it's really quite simple to implement and customize.

It works great and it looks super sharp.

Great extension!

You just have to read the document and follow the rules (install JCE first) and then it works very easy to use one picture with this. Makes it look much better :-)

Many Thanks!

Awesome Extension

Posted on 22 February 2010

Highslide JS for Joomla is an awesome extension. It makes the most out of the powerful Highslide package. The developer is also very concerned about problems and provides help very quickly in his forums.

I was initially confused, but after following the installation instructions found under "documentation" down to the dot I got it working.

Mind you, I use 1and1 as my hosting partner, and had to configure the php to v5 before I got this working (1and1 use php v4 as standard unless otherwise specified).

Excellent extension.

The reason this component deserves a top-rating is because it brings the full power of Highslide-JS into Joomla and also because the author gives excellent support on his forum.

Be warned: When I say "full power" I mean it, which means there are a LOT of options. This is not for the faint-of-heart or people who just want an easy setup with no effort.

But if you have no problem rolling up your sleeves and getting right into it, then nothing else that I know of will give you full control over the Highslide script inside Joomla, which means you have tons of options for not only image pop-ups and galleries, but html popups too.

I love this extension!

What I love about it:

The visual options are great. Default popup/slideshow styles are included, which helped me decide which way I wanted to go on using the designs.

There is another Joomla based Highslide extension, but was much easier to understand in my opinion.

I already had highslide JS for joomla and thought it was great, but now that it's updated and it's Fantastic.

ImageFlow for Joomla

ImageFlow for Joomla

Free | Galleries | Ken Lowther

ImageFlow is a picture gallery, which allows an intuitive image handling. The basic idea is to digitally animate the thumbing through a physical image stack. That intuitive handling is automatically caused by the metaphorical use of the well known process of thumbing through. ImageFlow for Joomla was derived from ImageFlow 0.9 by Finn Rudolph. Features: HTML output of the images is controlled by an output template file that you can create. This means that ImageFlow can be adapted to any one of several image display scripts (Shadowbox, Lightbox, Highslide JS, etc.). Currently, output templates are provided for Shadowbox and Highslide JS. By default, Highslide JS is used to display the popup image. Note: Highslide JS must be installed seperately. It is not installed by this module. Thumbnails, with reflections, are automatically created from the source image and cached on the server for quick retrieval. Thumbnail size is specified as a percentage of the source image size. Images are loaded via an image list text file, all images in a single directory or both. JPG, PNG and GIF image types are supported. Thumbnails can be created with or without transparency. An upper limit can be set on the number of images loaded from a directory. Optionally hide or show the image slider and caption line. Scales 100% dynamically. The look and size of the imageflow container can easily be modified via CSS. Mouse wheel support Arrow key support Loading bar Changelog from 1.0.8: * Added auto-step option * IE6 compatibility * Improved scrollbar handling. * Added thumbnail effects (darken, blur, sharpen, grayscale) options * Simplified thumbnail border option. * Improved thumbnail script to temporarily alter PHP memory settings when necessary/possible to allow thumbnail image creation. * Added strip extension from filename module parameter. * Added {username} and 324 variable substitution in directory and image list file parameters * Added Active link on focused parameter * Added multiple imageflow instances per webpage capability * Added Shadowbox2template and Shadowbox3template. * Captions enhanced to allow inclusion of EXIF info for jpg images * Added metadatatemplate to allow definition of IPTC/EXIF based captions for directory load function
