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).
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! :)
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.
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
short time! HE is very very gentil and has got a superb service! I love the Gallery: it is truely fully customizable and the site ships with a whole documentation, simple usage nice output.
The best - the gallery is very very simple and straigth out of the box to use,
yet it's a damned powerful image gallery! i really love this non-commercial extension.
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.
This one is highly recommended :-)
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!
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
