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.
- 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)
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.
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 ;-)
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.
