I have been using Joomlaworks' Simple Image Gallery plugin for years (not connected to this one as I understand) but then I needed to insert a gallery into a module and found that it didn't work.
This module did the job, ultimately, but it needed some tweaking.

The problem is that if you deselect "maintain aspect ratio", (say you want a square thumbnail for all images), instead of cropping them, it creates squished thumbnails.

Luckily, it also creates a permanent thumbnails subfolder in the image gallery folder. So I worked around it by replacing its thumbnails with ones I cropped to square myself.

It worked for a single gallery but I wouldn't want to have to do it on a mass scale. For that, I give 3 stars only.

This is a good product, with a little room for improvement.

Firstly, it does what it says it does, and does it elegantly. Very impressed with the simplicity and setup.

It could use the following IMO:
• Auto Linking to Sub Folders (so that under one user name, they might have 2 folders under their username, and when they go to the root folder gallery, they can see a link to the sub folders.
• Better handling of thumbs. It would be good to see them keep dimensions by setting a MAXIMUM height and width, rather than setting it to one specific size. This would allow for a more dynamic page, and not distort all the images on the page, if you have different dimensions then it will go by the width you set.
• An option on layout too would be good - to have the ability to set a width, and maybe instead of point 2 above; this option wold allow us to set the width to 600, set the thumbnail to 180, and we would see it automatically make 3 columns of thumbnails.

Don't get me wrong, I like it - I just would love to see it a little better!

Highly recommended for all users.

This is by far one of the quickest modules I've downloaded for my Joomla site without having problems or difficulty figuring it out. I love the look of it, BUT, one thing I've noticed is that the thumbnails of each image are resized to different proportions which make the images look funny. If there's any way to make the whole image fit the thumbnail window or if I can just crop it, then please let me know.

Thumbnail option will be add in the next version.
