This is a wonderful plugin, easy to use and configure and works like a charm just right outta box! And I found it even simple to tweak (if you know your way around, of course), unlike other plugins I tested who had bad and confused code.
So, beautiful plugin and nice coding, I warmly recomand it!

From looking at most of the joomla galleries this one is the best for simple gallery displaying! I had some issues with other ones, but not this one. Thanks for publishing this.

Cheers Josh Lewis.

I've tried a few gallery extensions, but this is my favourite: creates clean standard code, looks and works smoothly and slickly, and is very easy for Authors to deploy in their articles.

One suggestion for future versions: some configuration options for thumbnail generation, e.g. specified dimensions / zoom, cropping from specified edge / corner / centre ... just a thought ;)

I use this plugin with some neat tricks in my SOBI2 template and it works great and better then all other gallery approaches I tried before. The author was very open to feature requests. Thanks for introducing the regex support. This plugin rocks!

I tried almost every free image gallery plug in available on this site, and PP Gallery has been the easiest, most hassle free install and article integration of them all.

For a straight forward, simple image gallery with great lightbox features, this is THE extension to use!

After almost giving up all hopes to find a easy, simple but elegant way to speed-up my article gallery construction I was lucky enough to find this one. Works right out the box where others failed due to bugs or conflicts.
Powerfull settings are available and I do hope that the developer will continue to keep it lite and fast.

I've tried a batch of galleries and all I wanted was a simple collection of photographs on a page and while this has the flexibility to offer more it gave me just what I was looking for and took minutes to be up and running. Perfect, thanks very much for this.

The gallery didnt work in IE. there was an error thrown on $("a[rel^=\"prettyPhoto\"]").prettyPhoto({'.$ppparams.'}); in the ppgallery.php also the theme didnt work. In firefox it is good.

Thanks for the report,
this plugin was tested with IE6, 7, and 8, but you never know...! I'd like to solve those issues, can you contact me via the pPGallery-Forum or Bug-Tracker (you can use the 'Support' link above)?
