Responsive Photo Gallery for Joomla 2.5 & 3.x. Create stunning eye catching photo galleries in a simple and easy 'responsive' way. Responsive Photo Gallery will self adjust to whatever browser or screen size your viewing from. When viewing from a smartphone or a touch pad, you'll love it's finger swipe navigation ability on both the carousel and the main photo. There are only a few module options to set because the power is in the code! Responsive Photo Gallery uses the power of the jQuery Library Script (version 1.7.x or newer), a few supporting jQuery scripts and some basic code as its backbone.
PLEASE NOTE: The jQuery Library script version 1.7.x MUST be used for the Joomla 2.5 version with this extension or it will not work!
Responsive Photo Gallery has been tested to be compatible with IE8+, FireFox, Chrome, Safari, Smartphone and Touch Pad browsers.

One drawback is that it was not compatible with the video gallery app I was using (VideoBox). The photos would not show up in the galleries, just the skin would when I had both the video and photo galleries active. I had to keep the video gallery and find another compatible photo gallery. But i will use this for another site for sure.
Here several months I use responsive gallery. The most important point for me is this extension manages very well the pictures in landscape and portrait. However there is no response from the support. I had solicited the support there several months and a few days ago, that's a shame because I have a code error. Anyway, I recommend this great extension
I personally don't like those two styles with rounded corners, but it is personal choice.
I test displaying gallery from joomla image folder and it worked like a charm.
Also, it is ready to support multiple galleries within a page, so you don't have to worry.
Thumbnails are resampled, and it is responsive.
Well done developers. Thank you.
My only recommendation is to improve upon the image description potential for the gallery. As it stands it uses the name of the file. Though this may be fine for many uses it does present limitations for many. The use of an external file (txt or csv) has proven very effective with other galleries.
Ed handled my issue from the first time and within 1 day he recoded my slideshow to be 100% no-conflict with jQuery and Responsive Photo Gallery.
NO issues on the site found and everything works properly with this great extension shown on my website.
It is a very easy to use module with a great support behind it. Even if its FREE.
I appreciate your help, your time and your kind replies.
Thank you Ed :-)
And not to forget, it is free :)
tomox, thanks for your kind rating and review of Responsive Photo Gallery. Glad everything is now working for you and no worries about not reading the documentations... neither do I ;) Oh, it's FREE because that's the way it should be!
Adytzu... I am humbled by your very kind comments and rating. They make all the development hours worth every sleepless night. Thank you again and please let me know how else I can assist moving forward.
mjason, yes... the power of jQuery and CSS is amazing and thank you for your kind rating and review! The thumbs are generated by... magic! Checkout the helper.php file ;)
caponz, no... thank you for allowing me the time to work through your issue. I'm delighted all is well and that the site owner is happy. That is what it's all about!
To be effective all photos have to be resized to fit nicely into the monitor aspect ratio you are designing for. I found that for sensible display all the photos had to be resized to 400 px in height, but this would depend on yor template. Also if you want descriptive titles you have to rewrite the file names to be the title you want.
Overall really useful if, like me, you just want a basic gallery module. I especially like the ability to just upload more photos, which are then automatically incorporated in the gallery.
The author seems to be very happy to promptly answer any questions, which is excellent considering this is a free extension
