Event Gallery is an easy to use gallery component for Joomla. It supports adaptive, 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.
Just one word to the used terminology. Because I initially wanted to display images for events, the used terms are chosen accordingly. Today an event is more a folder containing images.

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.
The actual galleries this produces are stunning and really nice to look at and use.
I needed the ability for people to log in and see their own personal gallery and in the admin for this component you can give each gallery it's own unique password so people don't have to register to your Joomla site to see their galleries, they can be given a password via email or whatever and they can log in.
It come with a 5 star review from me, wish I could give it 6 as the support has been excellent as well, very very good dev team.
It is very easy to work with and the results are great.
I ran into one (small) issue (not caused by this component, but by my hosting firm) and Sven was very cooperative in his support. Even from his vacation address!
TOP component and TOP support!
AS others have said and not wishing to repeat the fact but the features and benefits are truly awesome, a 'word' I rarely used, but in this case it is the only word to use.
I am using and reviewing the FREE version, it has so many feature you would thing that you are paying top dollar for the product.
I am a person that likes documents and these documents are very good, the only minor problem is the use of 'English', but that is not important.
You must try this product, you will not regret it.
There are few bugs where developer could not fix it but he promised he will come up with a solution in next update(The thumbnail of last image in the gallery is too dam big)
Overall its not a Perfect gallery but best gallery in JED but the developer deserves 5 star
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 became a fan of this extension and went with the extended version.
When I encountered some doubts and display issue with my template...great support and documentation assist me along the way.
two thumbs up!~~
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.
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.
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!!
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 ;-)
