My fears were completely unfounded! The plug-in worked like a dream from the moment I installed it! I cannot tell you how impressed I am at the ease of adding multiple galleries/images to single pages (including the frontpage) of my joomla sites!
Once the site is live and the client has paid I will gladly donate or purchase the pro version. Please keep up the great work and now I want to go explore the other extensions you have created!
This is one completely satisfied user.
