I wanted a module which could speed up the website and keep it lean of photo bloating download problems. SEO fast loading pages with compact and easy display for a photographer. This module is going to have a hard life with many pictures so it has to be good.

I tried some of the others and they all simply looked bad with few options.

The new website is a rush job after another hosting supplier had a crash on their servers. It's a WordPress to Joomla+EasyBlog conversion.

Everything works well and then we hit the problem of what to do with the photos under real life editing. This module solves the problem for me.

I would like one feature: integration into EasyBlog. Each blog entry can be associated with a directory perhaps by the ID number of the blog. The photos can then be picked-up by a sub-directory of the images folder.

I could then just say to the photographer: Go populate your associated media blog sub-directory and the photo display will just work in the module position you want in the blog.

I may well code this myself but I would like any such code to be feed back in to this module.

The is a total dream to implement for almost any level of Joomla novice. I do develop my own plugin modules and can appreciate the quality.

Many thanks for GPL on this module.

I've been able to style it to feet all my nedds, but there is only one little thing : if the INI file could be integrated into de administrator area, it would be perfect. Thanks fo this great module.

This extension took some time and effort in order to get the best from it but it really is worth the effort.

Once I worked out how the various settings work and the numbers that relate to them, the module did exactly what I wanted. The ability to add a background image is also useful and the amount of control is impressive.

However, the very basic instructions are helpful to get started but they don't offer much help with the finer points which is a pity - a brief manual would make it much more appealing.

For instance, the INI file holding titles, descriptions and links must be in the same folder as the images - there are no instruictions for this. Similarly the speed is set between 0 and 0.3 whereas the numbers relating to offset and radius are in (?) pixels so you need to keep this in mind when positioning the carousel since they default to 0 for automatic setting.

This extension has huge potential and it is good to have such an extension that doesn't use Flash, especially now that websites are starting to leant towards handheld devices - Android etc.

I give this full marks because it does exactly what it claims and it works :-)

This is a wonderful module. I want to limit the use of flash on my website and it's perfect. But I would be perfectly pleased if the module could display in a vertical way... But anyway, it works perfectly (even in IE6...)

I use multiple modules of ARI-soft - this is one of them. They work great - fast and highly customizable via CSS rules!
Moreover, outstanding, fast support - even in weekends! Certainly worth looking into!

This is a fantastic module. It takes a little understanding of all the parameters you can set, but their tech support is fast, patient, and wonderful. I don't mind having to learn something if I have an willing teacher, and with ARI-soft I do. I have now gone on to purchase their Sexy Slideshow so I can put images behind the carousel. Could have used a free one, but wanted to put some money in the pocket of this developer. Kudos!

This plug-in worked first time, sat the same in Chrome, I.E., Firefox, Safari and Opera and was flexible enough to make all the changes I need to get it to fit it with my website.

I had a problem and contacted ARI. They responded VERY quickly and sorted the issue.

Highly recommend this plug-in AND the developer!

This is an excellent extension that really adds top class style to a website. And the support from ARI is superb. I needed to tweak the extension slightly for my own needs, and had an updated version back from ARI support, that included the changes I needed, within an hour. These guys cannot be faulted, best support I have ever known.
