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.

I do wish I had the option to pull the title and description from the tag when I place photos in an article.
Also, there seems to be a limit to how many images I can include in the "label" file. Human error (me) has not been ruled out.
I had this installed on my clients website. i loved the picture display and so did my clients!
It's so easy to install and setup. The layout display is fantastic. Adding/removing images is a breeze through the image media manager!
Thank you Developer! You've done an absolutely fantastic job with this sleek, lightweight image gallery plugin.

Really great plugin and module. Thanks so much to Levente for his awesome work.
The other thing I like (and this is why I found it in the first place) is that the code is W3C compliant.
Keep up the good work!
