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!

A really great component for Joomla! photo galleries, very simple to use and now there are plugins to enable batch upload and lots of other features, I can see this becoming the gallery of choice.

The best thing in my opinion is that feedback is being listened to, with regular releases and improvements coming thick and fast - a great sign of a strong development team and reliable extension.

This is the best gallery I have ever used with Joomla! It has all the features. One suggestion, It'll be great if we can upload more than one image at a time. I mean the support for multiple image upload. Thank you for the great extension

It is possible now with FW Gallery Batch Upload Plugin. Thank you for your review.

I can't say enough about this component. I've struggled to find a decent photo galley in Joomla for a couple years. The FW Gallery almost exceeds all of my requirements. The most recent version, 1.3, is what really pushed it over the edge for me and this is now the component I am using to render photos in Joomla.

This is a very simple gallery component, only suitable for showing one people's photo albem on his blog.

In my test, the worse is, the Lightbox in their Demo does NOT pop-up at all. There is NO option for Lightbox in parameters either.
Owner's reply

Thank you for your reviews! We are glad you like it! We`ll correct soon the lightbox functions and let you know about it.

I just installed FW Gallery, had a few errors of me not reading completely, but within an hour had all my photos displaying correctly in my test site. I intend to use this for all my sites, now.

Clean easy to install, easy to use & looks good in no time at all. Improvements could probably be the use of an editor for the description field sometime in the future but still an excellent addition!!
