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.

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

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

I am very happy for this ultra-flexible brilliant extention.

I successfully did everything I wanted. The result looks stunning.

For many beginners could be quite difficult to edit css, js and extention' template files to achieve the desirable result, but advanced users can customize it easy.

However I highly recommend author to do Top margin parameter, cause when you enlarge module, large empty space consists above the photos.

Thanks many for this wonderful work!

Even if I fing that conjuction with shadowbox and lightbox do not work (under my command ;), since I make it work with slideshow I give five stars. For me this is one of the best looking gallery presenter. with a little hack (I remove background color and frame) it look like it's born on my site.

Thanks guys, and best with your work!!

Excellent image gallery...

Only a tiny problem I am having in here, when i click either of the thumbnails, I want the image to open in the same window (somehow re-size and enlarge) but no matter how I try it still opens in a new window... any thoughts? Is there a plug in I need to install or..

thanks again

Owner's reply: Imageflow works in conjunction with many other extensions that produce image popups. Highslide, lightbox, shadowbox, etc. just to name a few. So, yes, you must install an additional extension to produce the popup image. More information is available at the website.

Hey, great product, succeeded where others were lacking.

Personally I liked this product because of all the extra features that it provides, I found it very easy to set up and use, and, when I did have a problem (I didn't like the border), I found the answer in the FAQ page on his website, so solved it near immediately. I also had another problem where my menu started appearing beneath the gallery, but I simply added a z-index: 1 to the css file and it resolved it immediately! Such a simple solution that even I could do it :)

I would have given this a 5 star rating but I really wanted the images to open in a new window, I think this is probably a really easy fix, so contacted the developer, and have high hopes that it will be resolved.

All I can say is thanks to the developer, top product, when I had tested so many others which I didn't like, or couldn't quite do what I wanted. I figured it would be easy to find a simple image gallery component, but I tried loads, and was thinking I might have to use a commercial one, when it was not a core feature of the website I was making (hence I was being a skinflint). This product solved my problem, with ease, and most importantly put a huge smile on my face.

Truly excellent

The fluidity of image loading and display, combined with clean customizable graphics and great integration with highslide, with the added benefit of low level customization make this a fantastic application with tremendous flexibility and potential. Easy to set up, lots of information on the joomlanook forums, and Ken's presence there and dedication to supporting these applications is exceptional.

Fantastick extension

Posted on 18 March 2010

First of all I just want to thank Ken of joomlanook for all the help with this extension. The support on their forum is excellent.

This was exactly what I was looking for!!

The latest version allows multiple galleries per page, exactly what I needed. Easy to install, use, configure ... a perfect extension. Thanks so much.

I received prompt reply. Peoples are genius. Initially I struggled a lot due to documents which cannot be understood (which can be reloaded, reviewed for change) when I contacted the admin, they helped at their farthest possible extent. Very co-operative. Best Module I have seen so far in accordion, and that too free ! Great Looks ! I don't have any words to describe it further. They just rock !

Cool Extension

Updated for Joomla 1.6/1.7/2.5 1.6+ version installs from a single installation package. Version 2.0.10 corrects a security vulnerability that is present in all prior versions of Highslide JS for Joomla. Anyone with a version prior to 2.0.10 should upgrade to the most current version as soon as possible. New features - fully supports Highslide version 4. - 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.
