I was a little skeptical after reading reviews for other ARI components, but I'll have to echo the comments about very good support. I posted a question about how to add both titles/captions and descriptions for each photo and the next day there was a change to the component to incorporate that feature. Am using it on one site and it's working great.

I played around with gallery extensions for weeks and always were some parameters for customization missing. When you look the screenshots you will notice that almost all of the original ColorBox parameters can be adjusted within an easy GUI.

3 times I made suggestions how to make the extension even better and the support responded immediately and the new improved versions were available within hours.

The support is unbeatable. When I had trouble with my website I gave them access to the backend and they fixed the problem within minutes.

I suggest it for all.

My fellow Joomlitians,
i tried so many commercial components wasted so much time with crap and non-existing support, that this is the first review is write EVER!

I gave this a try, cause it has been exactly was i needed to finish a job.
Okay - for the normal things it works right out of the box, easy and awesome, no script conflicts - just good right out of box.

Now i wanted to link some images from an image map, and the syntax varies from normal HTML for displaying images, so the plugin did not work. I wrote the support and - guess what? - a few hours later there has been an updatet version which i could use with image maps without any problems.

Always kind and competent - if you need something like this - go for it here!
