Event Gallery Popular Component

Upload - Show Off - Sell

Event Gallery is an easy to use gallery component for Joomla. It supports flexible and responsive layouts and provides a unique way of presenting images. If presenting is not enough enable the cart! Let users browse through your images and buy them.

Event Gallery 3 adds a full cart&checkout process to the gallery.

===============================================
PHP 5.5.9 introduced a bug which causes images to look very blurry (https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=66714). Disable image sharpening in the components options until this is fixed.
===============================================

But back to the initial description. The extension market for Joomla gallery components is pretty crowded. Because of this I decided to build another one ;-). Initially I wanted to present images for specific events. In addition people should be allowed to add comments to images. But requirement changed over time and more and more features where added.

Just one word to the used terminology. Because I wanted to display images for events, the used terms are chosen accordingly. Today an event is more a folder containing images. Maybe I'll change this in later versions but currently it is like that.

Main Features

- Joomla 2.5 / 3.2 / 3.3 compatible
- Supports responsive layouts
- Includes Google Picasa Webalbums and local stored images
- ICC profile support
- Image processing like sharpening
- Password / User Group protected folders
- Five configurable ways to display images
- Comments for images
- Integrated Lightbox support
- Image management using the back end
- Supports FTP uploads
- Multiple file upload with modern browsers
- Cart&Checkout for images
- swipe support for the lightbox and the lightbox is fixed in the screen
- Social Sharing (Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Direct Download, Pinterest)
- Watermarks

===============================================
Since the install package is pretty large make sure your upload limit is high enough. If not just the download link to install it using the Joomla Extension Manager.

If you encounter any issues please let me know. Usually they can be solved in a couple of hours or even faster. Please check the requirement section in the manual to sort out possible issues as soon as possible.

If you want a nice modern, non complicated component that supports multiple categories and the ability to display a categories page, then Event Gallery is the answer. Amazing and quick support.

My only wishlist items would include, more styling options (shadow, radias) without modding the core CSS, ability to set lightbox large photo size, and to have a progressive uploader for large images and not relying on php limits.

I have used many different photo extensions. This is by far the best. The layout is crisp and clean. The photos display nicely with many different layout options and functions. You can have this installed and configured withing a matter of minutes, And when I needed some help on the article plugin, support replied to the ticket within minutes and sorted my question in a single response (I just missed enabling one of the plugins). I highly recommend Event Gallery!

Very great product that was created out of need. As they say, necessity is the mother of invention.
Sven has created a wonderful program that is simple and effective.
Even during a recent support issue, Sven was willing to work late/early hours to help resolve the one and only issue we have ever had with the product. In the end, the issue was with our website that we were installing the product on and not the product itself.
we will recommend this product to all of our customers who are looking for a photo gallery product with (or without) a shopping cart/store.

Extremely impressed. Excellent documentation, extension was very easy to use, youtube videos to show how to use it, I am so impressed with how fast the developer responded to my support ticket, on and on and on. Really one of the best extensions I have used in many years of Joomla development.

Your extension is absolutely gorgeous and neat. It responds to the needs a lot of photographers could face. I have searched the web for such a tool. Or they are services with month fees, or they are tools (extensions or closed CMS for e-commerce but don't have the photographs feel and touch in mind, or they are galeries without a cart).
And compared to galeries, yours is one of the rare that proposes full screen zoom, minimalistic buttons and the clic anywhere function on a zoomed photo to switch to the next one.
The e-commerce side is a breeze.
I give to everybody the advice to give some $ to have the Extended version of this component because the extended features are the icing on the cake. Especially the excellent support from the developer.

For a free extension this totally rocks, the layouts are awesome.

The only addition I would suggest is the option to specify the image used as the gallery thumb, it's a bit temperamental.

But overall a total thumbs up, if the client was prepared to spring for the extended I would have got it within 30 mins of installing it!!
Owner's reply

I'm glad you gave those 5 stars! The option to define the main image for a gallery is already there. Get in touch with me if you need a hint ;-)

I have really tried all major galleries and this one is the best i have found because of the really modern design and way it presents images.

Also the fact that you can sell photos with the Cart&Checkout feature make it irresistible. The support is great and fast too. I had a minor issue with Facebook share function and Sven not only helped me but did even more from what i requested.

Great extension, very straight forward to use with no bugs at all, such an elegant design and excellent support, I totally recommend it.

This is a very nice component that does the job well out of the box.
But this does not means it has limited functionality, if you spend some time you can configure it to suit your needs!
