Joomla! 1.6, 1.7
There are even some nice goodies like PicLens support or various ways to display the full images in the gallery component, as well as some extra modules and plugins (The Random Image module is just great!)
All I wish to be added some day is the ability to have a "auto-size" lightbox which adjusts according to the image resolution instead of a fixed lightbox size.
Support is incredbile, Jan is always there to answer questions and help you, which really means a lot, especially if you are a newbie.
In comparison to other galleries Phocagallery has the advantage of being 1.5 native, not a bridge and capable. The code is solid, it's simple to use and install and has good features. I expect it to continue to mature and become THE gallery for Joomla 1.5. I used RSGallery2 for a short time and have been using the Gallery2 bridge for years. Phoca doesn't do everything the others do yet but the code is cleaner and new development is happening much faster. I think Phocagallery is the future.
With Phocagallery 1.8.6 you can now rotate images and recreate thumbnails. In addition to the already present features of having as many categories as you want (and nested too) with the ability to have a theme you have a good base to create nice galleries. In the future I'd like to see more powerful theming, and some new modules..
This component is been edited very well! loads of updates and really good future's.
The "piclens" support is awesome.
However there is 1 thing that is not completed, the multiple upload future that's important for me is not working as it should be in my eyes. I hope this will get developed in the future.
It's easy and has great support on Phoca's website, this is far best ever extension I used for Joomla, I wish that every extension I'm using had such a great support and was so customizable.
other than that this extension is growing in new ways with each release and only gets better each time.
I downloaded Phoca Gallery, buzzed through the very well laid out documentation, installed the component, and was up and running with a fully functional gallery, just as advertised.
No headache, no frustration.
Just a functioning gallery.
This is a really nice solution if you want to have a gallery on your Joomla 1.5 website. If you want to have images in your article with a possibility to enlarge them, use this in combination with the phocagallery plugin.
All credit to Jan for his swift help.
UserInterface could be a bit more intuitive, though. Gallery is list of foto's and categroy is a gallery, imho. But once this is clear, no pain and a lot of gain! Well done.
Categories view - list of categories
Category view - images in one category
Gallery - main view with images
Categories - list of categories
Themes - themes
The interface is extremely simple to use and whilst the options available are not overwhelming they are certainly enough to provide for 99% of your needs.
It integrates well with Joomla 1.5's SEO capabilities and requires the upload of images through Joomla's default media manager (maintaining a standard workflow).
