I had been using it since the first version came out. Every new version is simple better than the last one, I just don't know if its possible to update the module to new versions without losing the images that are already created with older versions. I tried but the old modules created by older versions just disappeared when I used the new version. Anyway this component is really great and the best option to put images on your website.

hi Cepae..

you can update the module manually, by extracting the module's contents to you hard drive, and then upload the files via ftp to SIH's directory in: (siteroot/modules/mod_sih) replacing the old files..
this should keep your existing copies of the module.
thanks for the review and top rating :)

I spent quite some time looking for something like this. Found a few that either errored, or wasn't customizable. This module is great. Very well done. I will probably look to use your other ones as well. Thanks

This is a easy module to use and does what the author says. One great thing is that it has an option to center its position within the module. So many other module extensions don't have that option and some still don't play ball when you try and change the code to align center. The transparency option and mouseover is handy and so is the ability to include whatever link you want under the pic.

Thanks for the easy to use extension.

I downloaded it and it works really perfect! Less than 30 secs I had my image where and how I wanted. Being fighting many hours with the module random image and the image never appears. With this one, what i said, max 30 secs and you have your image. Great work! Thanks for this great module!!!

This extension really does the job. Fast installation, fast setup, great results!!! I'll no longer use banner module.

Suggestion : It would be great to get a setting for the image "title" tag. The "alt" tag only work with IE.
Owner's reply

thank you for the great review and rating :)

now v1.5.8 assigns the alt text to both the alt and the title tags.. thanks for the note ;)

Currently doing my wifes retail site....
she has used a flashy template from gavick that uses an very 'slick' image slide type module....
when she asked for a single picture to be shown in a module position and wanted it to link to a page...

This is a great little module. The only modification I would find usefull is a button to search and select your images.
Owner's reply

thank you for the great rating :)
as for the modification, i want to add such thing myself, but unfortunately i can't because of the module restrictions in joomla, to do such modification requires me to make a component, which will make this extension less simple and more complicated.

Easy to install. Does what it needs to do. Even a beginner (me) can do it.

Suggestions for later improvement:
- make it easier to add the image, for example as the editor does.
- it would be nice if you can add more images

Apart from those two suggestions, nothing but praise!
Owner's reply

thank you for the great rating :)

as for your suggestions, making it easier to add images is not possible unless i make it a component, which will make it even more complicated.
as for adding more images, you can copy the module as much as you can, i think it is better to do so, so you can control each picture's position

thanks again
