This extension looks great and is full of nice features, which is typical for vtem products.
And it is bug-ridden, which is typical for vtem products, too.

I reported a bug by giving some screenshots. The only response that I got until today is typical default reply of vtem support. They seemed neither to read my reports properly nor to investigate the issue on their component nor to solve it.

VTEM gallery could be a 5-star-extension, but currently it earns only 3-stars in my eyes: first star minus because of bug, second star minus because of support that always starts troubleshooting on customer instead of investigating the extension precisely and because of putting customers off instead of replying to bug reports professionally.

This is not remarkable for a commercial product. I have already experienced a lot more commitment and user friendliness on support of many non-commercial products out there!

this has got to be the easiest gallery to set up.Its possible to upload all the images at once and it creates a complete gallery very fast. I had quite a lot of images and by uploading them all at once I was able to create a large gallery in minutes. Its got many options for format and is easy to create titles for the gallery
