It does take some tweaking to get the layout right, but it has the options to make it all work, with good information provided, and loads of features.
The key for me was the front end ability to allow a person to upload to a gallery of their own without special permissions! Or to FTP the files!
Quite clearly one of the best gallery solutions for Joomla on the planet.
Well done for the design and thought that went into it!
If you are looking for a great gallery - this is the one for you!
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.
I recommmend this to anyone that wants a gallery that they can have multiple users use by having them upload via FTP to a dedicated folder, and then just making a page on the site for each person's gallery.
Very nice work!
