In my opinion this is the best gallery for Joomla!
Easy to install and customize... I give this a maximum rating!

Looks as if it should do everything I need and everybody else seems to be marking it highly (always assuming they are not sock-puppets), but gave up in frustration as I could not get it to work.

The main problem is there seems to be no documentation at all and no replies in their forum (except from other users).

Might be good for you if you have the time and patience to figure it out. I don't. There are fully-documented alternatives out there.

If you are looking for an image gallery that will allow you to define subcategories within your gallery, and do batch upload of a large number of images without any problems, prevent the right click save as so people cant save your images, as well a million other configurable display options this is the best image gallery by far. I was building a professional photographer website with 200 - 300 photos per category and needed something to upload the photo collections quickly and effortlessly, the main thing too was that I could show the photographer how to do the uploads himself. I tested 5 other image galleries and all of them had trouble with batch uploading, it was a nightmare. I am so glad I found this component, the guys have done a fantastic job it is a very well designed component and it works great!

I was very excited when everything worked together as it should! :) The seamless integration with CB was most welcome and I was extremely impressed with the depth of control the administration side has. I didn't expect as much for the price tag!

Good job! I look forward to seeing future releases!

Had to play with the css a bit to make it look right but all in all a wonderful extension with LOTS of functionality.

Wow, most free gallery components do not have this granular level of control. I really enjoy using this component. Configuration made sense, and allows for granular control of user access and participation. Also uses EasyCaptcha and integrates with Community Builder, though I am not using it in my current implementation of JoomGallery.
This component is a REAL image gallery for Joomla! 1.5.

Thank you ever so much!

The idea is great, and overall it looks good when implemented. I was able to change the look and feel without too much trouble.

One large bug: it won't let non-registered users view detail images, even when that choice is set to "yes" in the backend.

No support: Despite numerous requests, my questions on the JoomGallery forum have gone unanswered. And there doesn't seem to be any documentation, at least not in English.

Conclusion: This could be one of the very best Joomla! extensions if the bugs can be ironed out. Until then, just mediocre.

This is a fantastic extension width a lot of features. It’s simple to configure and intuitive to use. The modules and the plugins are very useful and look nice in the website. The code is clean. In my opinion one thing is missing. A better image tagging system that allows user to navigate through tags freely.
Nice work. I will use this component and I will donate to “the cause” for sure.
Sorry my English

Oh my god, so many congratulations, the best joomla photo gallery, with no doubts!!

I have searched for a gallery that fits my needs, then I follow a link to a gallery that I don´t recognize the name. When I viewed the features I decided to install, then I was stupid, so great, so many many many features and very configurable!

Another Joomgallery addicted :)

This is the best free gallery for Joomla! but need some improvement.
There is not possible to attach the same picture to different categories. So, if you want one picture for example in 3 categories, you need to upload it 3 times. :(
Owner's reply

Thank you.
You have not to upload 3 times the same picture to refrence it in 3 categories. Have a look at Picture manager->New

My sites are such that there is a central gallery with public categories and members-only categories. And users need a simple front-end mechanism for uploads, edits, and comments.

JoomGallery has been the answer since Day #1 when it was but a release candidate. Would a fancy Java-based front-end upload screen be nice? Sure. But the extension is free. And each user has access to a nice panel with all his or her photos that he or she can add descriptions and titles to later.

And JComments fits in real nicely.

Installed flawlessly and up and running in no time. Easy to figure out and works perfect for me. Users can add/ edit photos no problem, all around fantastic extension.

Highly recommended.

Users that are complaining of IE6 woes (no problem here) fail to realize that IE6 is outdated and has been replaced... twice, by IE7 and now IE8. Any that are foolish enough to still be using IE6 are asking for considerable problems security wise and rendering websites correctly. I add an IE6 warning to my sites that explains the problem and links to update IE.

I found this extension very easy to install and configure. I had a full featured gallery (with user uploads) in about 5 - 10 minutes.

While the gallery is an excellent plugin the ie6 css problem slightly disappointing.
The fix I figured with the ja_purity template is to include a css selector and then

.ie6 .jg_row {

while with this fix there will be a little space on the right. IE6 tend to drop below the layers when it owerflows in with (even known it shouldnt, because 100% is just as it says, full width but not more than that)

I have had JoomGallery for some time now. Overall yes it looks a nice extension. However, myself and several other users have expressed a problem with the detail view when viewed in Internet Explorer.
I have posted numerous times on the support forum, as have others, but this subject just gets ignored. Why? Is it a bug? Once again, a great looking extension ruined by support. I so wanted to give this five stars, but if a problem keeps cropping up, and it is ignored, that must say something. Sorry guys...
