Adding image galleries inside your Joomla! articles is now super-easy and simple, using the magical "Simple Image Gallery" plugin for Joomla!.
The plugin can turn any folder of images located inside your Joomla! website into a grid-style image gallery with cool lightbox previews. And all that using a simple plugin tag like .
So for example, if we have a folder called "my_trip_to_Paris" located in images/stories/my_trip_to_Paris, then we can create our gallery by simply entering the tag into some Joomla! article.
The galleries created are presented as a grid of image thumbnails. When your visitors click on a thumbnail, they see the original image in a lightbox popup. The thumbnails are generated and cached using PHP for better results.
So let's briefly see what are the main advantages of using Simple Image Gallery: a) You don't need to have an additional gallery component to display a few images, b) you don't need to tell your visitors "to see our photos from Paris click here" and c) you focus more on content writing and less on administering the images!
The plugin is ideal for news portals wanting to display some product images, for example, inside their articles. Or for people who quickly wanna show their summer vacation pictures. With Simple Image Gallery, you can have as many galleries as you want inside each article.
Please note that if you want to create a gallery from a subfolder located inside your "image gallery root folder", simply adjust the plugin syntax to reflect the remaining path (after your set "root folder"),. Make sure you write the path to your target folder without any slashes at the beginning or the end of your path.
You can see a demo of the plugin here:

I Need to say one more thing:
KEEP UP MAKING THESE GREAT PLUGINS!!
This extension creates a standard "photo album" style layout with litebox features! Perfect!
I wanted to test the functionality of the Mambot first so I installed the free version and love it. So much so I'll probably buy other items like this from the same developers.
Thanks for providing such a great tool. If I had a spare $20 right now (pay day tomorrow) i'd buy the commercial release.
5/5 stars only has a couple of minor issues with XHTML coding which causes my HTML Tidy program in Firefox to show a couple of warnings nothing major though.
My 'average' vote here is for the SIG standard, I would give 'above average' rating to the pro version.
