Easy to set up and configure, this is a great Joomla component that does exactly what it should, without being over-complicated. Fast and helpful support if needed.

We needed a very powerful and flexible gallery for my wife's scrapbooking graphic design website. We wanted to allow users to upload their own images, commenting, voting, etc. There are several commercial galleries in use on similar sites, but either they don't work well with Joomla, are too expensive, or not feature-rich enough for our needs. FWGallery is an excellent gallery, but with the Front End user upload, commenting sadd-on and latest pic module FastW3b has created a gallery system that will do what we need for a very reasonable price (FWGallery is free, small fee for some add ons).
Fast response for support and they seem to listen to our requests for features (like the Front End Manager). Setup was quick and easy, literally a few minutes and we had a gallery up and running. Gallery is very configurable, with the only problems being when used on a dark template - some text (black) dos not show well. Other than the few cosmetic issues, it works and I am comfortable building our graphic intensive site with FWGallery.

You did a great job. I wanted a component with voting system and this does the job excellent. I had a few problems with the configuration, trying to figure out how the resolutions settings appear but now its all set. I did not give 5 stars to this componenct because it has a flaw. Although it supports the voting system, you cannot interfere with it - neither you can delete, reset or change the votes of each picture (it would be nice to see which user has voted)

Basic installation is fast and effortless, unpack it and use it ;) What I like very much is the possibility to install additional plug-ins that makes many complicated tasks so simple - check out the facebook plug in :)

This does exactly what I wanted it to do. Excellent app. I had a problem with pictures being removed if i renamed it, but support was good, and we resolved it by not using spaces in the filename.
Very grateful - recommended.

This component creates a sleek design. But be advised that it does not currently have a way to order the galleries. So if you want to display all your galleries and want them ordered in a certain way. It does not currently have this capability. Would have given "excellent" rating for this feature.

The product worked exactly as shown on their demo. I would have like some better documentation so I can figure out how to configure some of the options on the back end, however I figured it out. This extension is very simple to use and adds some style to your website.
If you have 10's of pictures to upload at one time, it will take a while to do unless you pay for their batch uploading module.

Hello to everyone!

Thank you for your review! Now it is possible to extend the functionality of your gallery with the help of FW Gallery Comment Plugin (that allows usage of JComments, JomComment components and Disqus system).

This is very simple, lightweight but still much power full image gallery component i ever seen. Best features i liked are thumbnail, watermark, image comment to explain about image and THE MOST IMPORTANT is images can have different dimensions. So u need not break your head to make all images of same dimensions to view them properly. A small remark i would like to make is "During image slideshow, image name (not image file name) is added with description at the bottom of the image. I think only description should be displayed ". But this is not problem at all. Many thanks to for developers for such nice J15 component making available absolutely FREE OF CHARGE. I can not rate this component more than EXCELLENT. My apology
With Regards,
Nilesh Kulkarni

I was looking for a simple and easy to use gallery that my client could manage. This is a very good quality extension. Basic to use and looks professional on the site.

Two thumbs up for a great easy to use gallery and the fact that it was free was a great bonus.

I have tried a number of Joomla photo galleries and have found all of them to be lacking in features or are very complex to configure. FW Gallery strikes a perfect balance. It provides the features that my clients need, without being overly difficult to use, which is important since most of my clients chose to maintain their own sites.

The only thing I'd like to see is the ability to resize thumbnails after they have been created. Other than that, I think it is perfect for my needs.

Keep up the great work!
