sigplus Image Gallery Plus is a straightforward way to add image or photo galleries to a Joomla article with a simple syntax. It takes a matter of minutes to set up a gallery but those who are looking for a powerful gallery solution will not be disappointed either: sigplus is suitable for both beginner and advanced users.

Even while simple to use, sigplus offers an impressive set of features. Images suitable for gallery preview are automatically generated with cropping and/or centering, and clicking on a preview image brings up a pop-up window overlay (so-called lightbox) showing the original full-size image without navigating away from the current page. Images in a gallery can be displayed in fixed or flow layout, they can be shown on a slider or carousel/rotator, or an image can blend into another using a fancy transition effect. Appearance and behavior are highly configurable including image margin, border, padding, slider/rotator orientation (horizontal or vertical), animation speed, slideshow delay, image sort order, etc.

Despite its versatility, sigplus is completely free. It is a full-fledged product with all features included, there is no need to buy a commercial professional version with extra features or purchase club membership that grants you additional privileges.

Translations included: English, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew*, Hungarian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak and Spanish* (asterisk indicates front-end only). Joomla 1.5 users should install plg_sigplus-1.3.x (and optionally mod_sigplus-1.3.x), users of Joomla 2.5 and later should use the package installer pkg_sigplus-1.4.x (click "Download" for the latest version released in the series to date for maximum compatibility).

Works great for photo galleries, slideshows and gallery previews. Captions and ordering are easy to configure, layout can be chosen/adjusted at will. Pages load quickly, good use of caching. In other words: it does all it should do, and it does it excellently!

It works as stated in the description without fail. easy to configure, and if you need to have captions for your photos al you need is create a labels.txt and save it in the same directory as your photos. This extension is second to none and.... it's free of charge. Thanks so much to the publisher.

Just superb! We've implemented this simple plugin for property management and it works like a charm. Upload images to the folder, use special tags and that's it! Looks awesome too! thank you!

I've just deployed sigplus for the 2nd time. It is awesome!
Even for such dummies like me, this extension is highly enjoyable and easy-to-use.

The documentation also worth a look: the instructions are crystal clear.

After deployment, there are lots of options to customize the look & feel, incl. the size of the preview images, alignment, navigation, etc.

Thanks a lot, Levente!

I needed to place a description for the images in a gallery. I've spent days downloading various extensions... Either they don't have the option, or they didn't work.

SigPlus was quick, easy to install and set up, and worked right away!

Well done to the team!

And Thank you!

As a photographer and digital artist with multiple graphics-heavy websites that require a huge number of galleries, I have tried literally every single Joomla image gallery extension in existence. I thought it would be easy to find an extension that allows a quick, easy grid layout of thumbnails, which open in a lightbox-style popup when clicked, with captions, and can be scrolled through from the popup. Apparently not.

Sigplus is the ONLY extension I've come across that allows everything I need with no hassle. It gives me a neat, easy grid layout gallery with captions. You'd think it would be the most basic thing in the world but for some reason, none of the other extensions, even the very expensive ones, do the job just right. Sigplus is the best at this. The module lets you choose the folder you wish to draw the gallery images from, customize the style and operation of the thumbnails and popup, auto-resizes all thumbnails for you instantly, with the option to choose whether or not you want them cropped or fit, add a text file with captions at any time, and images load quickly.

I am now using SigPlus on 4 separate websites and am am never going back. I paid good money for a number of galleries and none of them did everything mentioned above. Some came close, but were missing one aspect or another. Sigplus, however, is incredibly diverse, takes about 30 seconds to set up and it's FREE. I can't ask for more. Thanks for making such an awesome extension available!

I was looking for simple gallery. There are many but some of them made JQuery error and not working when the thumbnail click. This one was perfect! Very flexible and easy to use. Good work!

This is best of type IMHO.
I was looking for a plugin so that I could insert a few pictures directly into articles. I didn't need pagination / categories / UAC / and all the other complex stuff. But I did want it to look good and be settable for things like number of columns and rows / centering / choice of source image folder / etc and to work in all the major browsers
I won't name the others I tried and abandoned in frustration. Suffice to say that Sigplus ticks all the boxes.
I have not tried it as a module yet. Will report back when I have.

I was trying some free Galleries in the Photo Gallery category. I tried 4 or 5 until I decided to explore the Content Photo Gallery category.

I'm glad I did because I found what I was looking for. This plugin is a must if you want to include a gallery inside your content. The big plus for me is that it's based in folders which I find easier to manage than other gallery components.

Options are many regarding layout and display engines. What can I say ? Excellent !

I had problems display images in a gallery for a responsive website and found this one worked providing that I use the "boxplus light square theme", the other lightbox popup themes didn't display images properly. It can allow a title and description for each image, which I put it within the images folder that I'm loading and that works. I've used pkg_sigplus-1.4.2.16. It's a great plugin and easy to use - I've used it with images that are 500px in width and it loads really quick. I always use GIMP to scale down my images, posterise it to 40 and save it for web and it helps the images file size alot thus making it faster to load.

I have just loaded Sigplus to a new Joomla 3.1 site I am building and although I don't have much experience I found it easy to load and use. It took a little while to realize I had a blank page because I loaded pictures that were too big. Thanks for a great extension. Just what I need.

Easy to install and good documentation on website. We use in a rather limited way to allow display a bigger version of image embedded in the page. Worked well for us.
