really nice tool to add stylish slideshows to articles, for example (and of cause also in module positions). Lots of transitions, very happy with it.

If you would find even some time to add a nice Ken Burns effect to the large amount of nice transitions you have already, that would be great, as Ken Burns is different enough from other transitions to warrant adding one more - I think at least ;)

I played around with all extensions of this kind but this was by far the best one. I had some special requests and wasn't able to make it. I gave the support access to the backend and they made it work within minutes. The support is unbeatable!

I suggest it for all.

This is one of the few extensions that I can recommend to others. Good support and list of features.

Thumbs up also for clean markup and fast response to feedback.

One thing I'm waiting for is basic alpha fade transition and hopefully it makes into next version (now using 1.2.5).

I needed a Slide Show that worked always, and this i the best for my solution.

Best thing is that you can get pictures from several labaries, by typing the polders name.

I needed a new parameter in the module.
After a request in their FORUM they made 'Link' ...which is used as redirect link. Now i have the possibility to link the guests to a certin URL.

I was looking for an extension to allow a slideshow to be created from Flickr and all the other free options on here didn't work how I wanted them to (mainly I didn't want them to be clickable and go to Flickr). I decided to give this one a go after looking at the demo. Initially, the extension didn't work for me but a quick message on the support forum and the ARI Soft team fixed it. Only then did the big problem for me appear. The extension doesn't retain the original image format and resizes the images to fit the box. For example, if you make the box 500px by 300px, every image will appear at that size and shape, no matter what it's dimensions are. For this to work you need to have all the images you show be close enough to the size you make the box and you can't mix portrait and landscape formats.

ARI Soft did try to add this functionality after I brought it to their attention but were unable to at the moment, and following on the excellent customer service they have already shown, refunded the cost of the extension when it became clear that it was not suitable for me.

If they do manage to sort the resizing problem, I'll be straight back as everything else about the extension is spot on. Until then, my search continues.

I choos this extension because is very powerful: many transition to use, very easly to configurate, not expansive. The Support is very fast and good. Moreover Support has helped me to correct an error that I do in the template of the site. Claudio

Exactly what I needed, a very stylish header slideshow with so much transition effects you can hardly choose one. Instant support from the developers. Really easy to setup and use. More than satisfied with it.
