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!!! :-(

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.

I have used JoomGallery on a few websites now and have come to realise how versatile it can be. For example, on one website, the home page features a Ken Burns style slideshow with photos randomly selected from the gallery. All this comes with it for free! Thanks JoomGallery!

Guess it is the ONLY gallery with separate text editor for each image - tested almost every gallery - few has well done text options. Make no mistake - it is REALLY huge ! You can play with settings for weeks :o) "Level of difficulty" = MAX. Want extensive options - expect a huge Admin. Wish I could throw a link to my "makeover" edition.....was a challenge to change it, but joomgallery is well programmed. Really waited for JoomGallery 1.7 edition ! OUTSTANDING work - and for free.....

i want to personally commend the joomgallery team for the best extension for a gallery on joomla. integrates seamlessly into templates. the component is extremely light and offers way too many options and views... for free. here is a quick step by step guide:

1. install component using joomla's extension manager.
2. configure endless options and the directories for images next in the component's configuration.
3. link the gallery
4. create a category
5. upload an image

and bam. there it is... bitte sehr dream team!
