Very straightforward, but with a good range of customization parameters. The only minor issue I had in getting it to work is that the photos must be in a sub-directory under images/stories. Once I moved them there it worked like a charm. That little gem was buried a long way down in the very detailed and comprehensive installation instructions. Good documentation of the override parameters too. Well done - I think this is the best free extension for placing slideshows within articles - most of the others are modules only.
