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.

Just one small problem for me : autoanimation doesn't work, so I can't use it like a slideshow. Maybe because a jQuery/Mootools conflict ?
the command option makes kinda helpfull, create categorys of gallerys, and the effects are just beautiful.
Im very happy with this gallery , thanks to the developer for share it =]
There was however one specialist thing I needed which I could not find documentation for so I decided to email the developer with my query.
I was incredibly impressed to check my emails 30 minutes later and find he had replied with a detailed explanation of how to do what I asked.
great plugin, loads of variety and options, excellent documentation and perfect support!
I have just one problem with default lightbox theme(displaying only 30% of full view image). I solve problem picking Pretty photo light rounded theme.
I think that the problem is in template I use.
