I have used Ari Sexy Lightbox on all my websites since i first started using Joomla. Its fantastic and very easy to install. I use this to enlarge the images when clicked. Its straight forward and works everytime.
I had an issue as I was using another extention that was conflicting.
The developer of Ari Sexy Lightbox adapted solutions within hours. I cant stress how good the service is. If you use them, rest assure you are in good hands, even if you run into issues. Thanks to the developers for this fantastic product and excellent service

I've been using ARI Sexy Lightbox for years and it's the first thing I install for a new site.

It was also the first extension I actually paid for, but I figured, for the price, I'd give it a try. I'm so glad I did.

Right off the bat, I needed a tweak, and when I asked about it, they provided a new version within an hour with exactly what I needed.

I've also never been able to figure out regular expressions, so when I needed them to display my image galleries the way I wanted, they just gave me the code -- not a link to RTM.

Excellent products, above-and-beyond customer service. Rare -- and very much appreciated.

I can't say enough good things about Ari-soft products. The Ari Sexy Light Box is quick and easy to install and even as easy to configure.

There are too many features to praise. Suffice to say, I recommend it to anyone wanting a professional look to their Light-box.

I needed an usually complex implementation of the Ari Lightbox and their support came up trumps. Excellent customer service.

Installed this product and it worked well. I had a few teething issues at first, and the support documentation can be a little confusing. However when asked for support it was responded to promptly and professionally.

i purchased yesterdy (9€), set up the module in 5 minutes and that's it. so far - very satisfied. it's a really powerful module / plugin with a really beautiful shadowbox-frame-animation effect. it absolutely does what it says. i just use it with flv- and youtube-videos and it runs really smoothly.
but what is really amazing about arisoft is their support: this morning i had the idea to embed the shadowbox-links inside an image-map (sth all the other lightbox-modules obviously can't do yet) - and after trying and failing for half an hour i decided to ask the support. and - really - about 20 minutes later i got the response including the solution to my problem / including the offering for further help.
Best 9€-(joomla)-investment ever.

This is an amazing product with a load of extra's. I had a little issue getting ARI Sexy Lightbox launched from a menu item. I mailed ARI support and with the speed of light I had a response from the support team. They configured and answered my questions promptly.

Thanks ARI soft and keep up the excellent work!

The people at ARIsoft really understand the meaning of good service!

I was looking for a lightbox plugin for joomla 1.6 that can be used anywhere in the site, even inside the slider I had on the frontpage. Fortunately I found the ARI Sexy lightbox and it worked immediately. I had a few extra wishes and the guys at ARIsoft responded immediately every time, it seemed like chatting! :) They even logged on to my site and did some customizations to play HD Youtube content in a smaller window and fixed some interaction between the background slider and the movie. My site is great now and I highly recommand this product, and I havent even found out what else it can do!

As far as I can tell, this is a very good product, well worth the money. And the support is at least as good. I purchased ARI Sexy Lightbox to use it together with a slideshow extension, produced by another manufacturer. However, the two failed to work together. I contacted the ARI support; they responded instantly and after a few emails they had a solution for my problem. I’m really impressed, and like many others before me I would like to give ARI my warmest recommendations.

I recently purchased this package for a client and on installation it worked fine except that I noticed that the effect was applied to every image on the site even though I had not applied the effect to them. I emailed the developers and within 5 minutes received an explanation that the Lightbox was applied by the plugin to every image on the site that had a width or height modification made to it. On explaining that this was not I expected they created a new version overnight for me that would only be applied to those images that had a class attached to them which made it perfect for my application. The package is excellent and the service was outstanding, I would recommend this package to anyone looking for an easy to use and comprehensive lightbox for their site.

I purchased the full commercial version (for Joomla 1.5) mainly because I wanted the plugin, which is not included in the Lite version. Both the module and the plugin installed seamlessly and work well.
I used the carousel option which is very impressive.
The only issues I had were around understanding the plugin parameters, but the excellent and very fast support soon put me on the right track.
There is a case for drawing together all the instructions and details of the various parameters in to a single, easy-to-find location - although I understand this is currently being done.
This is an excellent extension in my opinion and deserves to be widely used. The support is also second to none!
Thank you!

I first used the Carousel and then the ARI SEXY Lightbox. The carousel installed very easy. I had some problems in installing and using the Sexy Lightbox though. But with all the fast and friendly support from ARI Soft I could solve all my problems very easy. Indeed there were no problems - I was doing wrong. Now Module and Plug-In are working properly and according to what I orgininally wanted. I like it!

'ARI Sexy Lightbox' does 'what says on the can'. It is an excellent lightbox.

The modest asking price provides plentiful support. ARI Soft answer every post on their forum quickly, as they do when emailed directly. If you have a problem, they'll help you to solve it, or even update their software if warranted! Like others I've reviewed, they are professional, and provide a superlative service.

Keep up the brilliant work!

It's a godd extension, except when you want to add descriptions to the photos. I still can't found the way to put more than one line, and the process of adding the photo descriptions using a CSV file is not very good. I've tried several times, and still can't see the descriptions in the photos. The back end is also a bit confused. It's a pity.
Owner's reply

Thank you for the review. The extension is used CSV files because CSV file has simple format and new fields can be added easily to CSV file and be shown by the extension. If you have any questions or problems with the extension, feel free to contact us on our forum or by email and we will be glad to help you.
