Art Feature Carousel
Very straight forward to install, worked first time. Well once I realised where my images folder actually was.

The main thing though is the positive feedback I pick up about the inclusion of this module. I use it for "before and after" displays and it is a real crowd pleaser.

Art Sexy Lightbox
Joomla 1.6 and Picasa friendly. Easy to install, intuitive and easy to use, and nice looking! Good support.
If you are using it to harvest content from web sites that require an email address as a username then you may need to turn off email cloaking.
I needed a good image lightbox for a client's antique chess set collecting web site and also for vanity to show off my own paintings at my jegart blog. A complication was that the client had invested a lot of time in building Picasa galleries and these had to be reused.
The module worked first time and the article plugin would have worked but I needed to contact tech support. The answer was back in an hour and they were very polite when it was my lack of knowledge which was at fault.
As a relative newcomer to Open Source I think this level of commercial development and support is excellent. Artetics have become my first stop for extensions.
