I got this up and running in no time and it works beautifully. The supporting documentation was especially helpful and so nice to see on an extension that is free!

Thank you so much!

Does most of the things you expect from a professional image gallery - but completely for free!

Just some suggestions: Top of the cream would be AJAX-editing, a more user friendly backend-design and maybe some default settings you can choose from or the possibility to save an own default setting (so your don't have to walk through all the tabs to change everything to reach your desired gallery-layout).

A great extension.
An incredible range of settings
Lots of plugins and modules for expanding available
Free and ad-free, unlike many others, where a distinction is made in a free base and a paid Pro version.
In the forum you can get free help directly from the developers!
The best gallery component at all!

Without a doubt, this is the best Joomla Image Gallery component there is.

I have tried them all over the last 5 years looking for something that has the functionality of standalone gallerys like Coppermine or Menalto Gallery 2 or 3.

There are some improvements I would like to see: especially a way to batch add/edit image meta titles and meta descriptions. (Not enough to lose a point though)

Well done Dev team!

I searched a lot and finally found this! It's very good for collections of photos. Only one thing I don't like: there's an on hover info red box appearing over slideshow navigation... I cannot hide it!!! :-(

I'm a joomla newbie, but install and setup was easy. Need to fill it with images now :-)

From the day I discovered it, I have always found it difficult to understand how such an extensive and fine piece of software engineering could be given away for free!
For anyone who wishes to build a user driven image based website, JoomGallery should come as the top priority.

This is a very comprehensive photo gallery. I need something compatible with my CB based site so at this time I have to uninstall. Despite what the description says I cannot find extensions to bridge the two. (If Im wrong please let me know.)

*Plenty of options

*Somewhat overwhelming - somewhat complex for smaller sites
*Front end uploader appears to be incompatible with CBuilder.

I've used this component since Joomla 1.5 . At first I wanted to find something else, while this had all the features I wanted I was getting very poor performance.

Turns out it wasn't the extensions fault at all. I do all my testing on WAMP and Xampp server over a Windows environment, and it runs terrible there. But note that once it was online, even in shared hosting, such as $7/month hostgator for example, it runs exceptional.

It does have a bit of a learning curve, and some of the documentation is hard to find unless you look for it (such as component module positions) but it's definately worth the time investment. Also, unlike other "free" galleries such as Phoca Gallery, this does not have mandatory backlinks. Try to remember all the work you're getting for free though and donate a couple bucks.

I've run this on live sites with over 60k images and no problems at all. I've also had it with only a few thousand and it does great for any size.
