You do a right choice. But now, this extension can be use with non-commercial AND commercial use. You can't do a fork, or if you do this, it will have the same GPL licence.

Tks a lot

By far and away the best and most simple thumbnail generator for Joomla.

Except Joomla 3.x of course!

If there was a Joomla 3.x version of Mavik I would pay willingly...

I needed a thumbnail generator with lightbox pop up of the original sized image within articles (not photo gallery) and have been searching for a long time. I'm using Joomla 2.5 so at first I thought Mavik Thumbnails wouldn't work for me. However, after reading other reviews which say that it works perfectly with Joomla 2.5, I decided to give it a try and it DOES work perfectly! I'm working on an academic project which is non-commercial so I was able to choose the highslide lightbox option which is responsive. Thank you for a nice plugin that works!

Installs smoothly and easily, then it is even easier to use!

I love the fact you can add any size image to an article and simple resize to create a zoom.

Awesome... Great Work.

A must have for any joomla site.

hi, many thanks to the developer of this plugin! i have no problems with AVG or javascript, but maybe i use other templateframeworks.
this is great plugin since long time and works with a lot of additional functions perfectly under joomla 2.5 - i dont know why it`s not listed here in JED as 2.5 compatible.

I have used Mavik Thumbnails on several sites since Joomla 1.6 was launched and my previous choice if image resizer was not available for the 1.6.

After an easy setup it just works with no intervention. I do not give it a thought from one month to the next; as a sites manager I could not ask for more. There are some tweaks that I would now like but they are just to make it better and even more flexible; that will be a separate email.

the only problem is using highslide script puts you automatically on AVG's infected site-list because of javascript obfuscation in the code. That means 500,000,000 people won't be able to visit the site.

Really amazing plugin. I tried out many other plugins, but one way or the other, each of those didn't work for me. But this one really did the trick! I just tried my luck using it on Joomla 2.5 site, even tho it doesn't explicitly say it supports it. It worked great!
Thanks to the developers!
