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).

I was having a problem with Joomla Works' Simple Image Gallery since to Moo Tools was incompatible with my JA Comments. The pro version of Joomla Works has different engines, but they don't have a pro version for 1.6.3.

SIGPLUS solved this problem. And it's actually even better than Joomla Works with the embedded slider. Also, fits to the browser, or expands to full size is a nice touch. I love this plugin! :)

Hmmm. Joomla 1.6.3
Tried this but cant see functions and Gallery features..
Small app but where are all the features like multiple upload, resizing, name tagging, review, etc.
Permissions for registrede users etc.
sig only add's small features to art. but does not provide you with a photo gallery so it must be misplaced under photo gallery and should perhaps be in photos and images -> Articles images.
Didn't solve my needs..

Even while sigplus surpasses most extensions in the category "Photo gallery" in terms of functionality it offers (and for this reason, I think it rightfully belongs there), and it supports some of the features you listed, it definitely has room for improvement, as every piece of software. If you would like to see a particular feature in sigplus, contact the developer directly, and promote development by making a donation to the project. Also, it might be helpful to check out the extensive documentation sigplus comes with: it has a comprehensive list of all what sigplus has to offer, helping you decide for or against it. Unfortunately, no extension is suitable for all conceivable purposes, but the JED offers a variety of them to let you choose the one you need.

After wasting days trying to get Phocagallery configured to work the way I needed it to, I decided to try sigplus. What a breath of fresh air! I needed a simple, but flexible solution for placing galleries in content. Sigplus more that met the challenge. I had it working exactly as I needed within minutes. (BTW: Not to disparage Phocagallery; it just has too many cumbersome, difficult to configure, and unneeded features for my purposes.)

I've couldn't it done better by myself. So thanks a lot. After trying out several photo albums on a test server with J1.6 this has become my favorite because it fulfils all my needs. I use it for a online magazine with lot of pictures (+10000 and still growing) illustrated with comments (yes, it's possible to add text with the pictures, even on a slide show). SIGPLUS is easy to implement, and straightforward. I re-use one article, so they all look the same. One thing several readers of my website discovered is that they could not see the pictures using Internet Explorer 9. Something to do with mootools or JQuery I suppose, but that will be fixed soon I hope. Any advice for fixing it is welcome. Thanks a lot for the good work! I use also another variant of a photo album software on another website, but this is my clear choice.

i am absolutly overwhelmed and totally convinced! this is so outstanding coool!!!!

The developer helps out - if you shot him a Email he comes back to you in a very very

To be true: I'm so happy and glad to have found this gallery extension!
It's perfect "out of the box" and then you have plenty of configuration options + useful customization options.

I was looking for a clean, modern looking image gallery for my graphic design/art site, that's easy to use and customise. Sigplus is the one! It looks neat and modern on the site, was quick and easy to install, and there's no link or advertising on the galleries. It's free, and Levente Hunyadi is very helpful. I wish him and his future the best!

The extension does everything it says it does. But honestly I was most impress with the documentation on website. So many extensions have the minimum. This one explains everything from the most basic installation to the advance customization. Thanks for the amazing work!

I've used many gallery addons for websites, but this ranks as one of the best! has a great deal of options and styles, auto generated thumbnails and gallery specific overrides. I had an issue with cached images (my fault not the plugin) and the support from developer was fast and very helpful.

I started using sigplus for one project and was very happy with it's easy use and very nice looks. But sigplus has developed, a lot more options, and I'm finding uses fot those nice options too!

The best and most easy gallery out there, when you just want to have a folder of pictures to show in a pretty way, and than some!

Superb addition to any website even if you just want to show your holiday snaps.
Currently using it when creating a website for a friend who is a photographer and as it is very flexible it means that we can display his images in various styles
Would certainly recommend to others and something I will use in other websites
