Functionality
The valuable features of FW Gallery are:
- import of XMP as tags images,
- gallery management by tags.
Ease of use
Good after handling which can be long because the documentation is poor and not always up to date. Indeed FW Gallery has undergone chaotic evolutions over several years, but now everything is OK.
Support
Documentation
I used this to: I use FW Gallery to publish on the web an inventory with photos of the objects and comments on each photo.
The menus on tags (imported XMPs) allow you to display objects by all category levels.
Functionality
Habe nach der kostenlosen Variante, die kostenpflichtigen Ergänzungen gebucht. Keine der kostenpflichtigen Ergänzungen hat funktioniert.
Ease of use
Wenn nichts funktioniert, dann begibt man sich zuerst auf die Suche nach eigenen Fehlern, von einer einfachen Benutzung ist also keine Rede.
Support
Die beim Kaufabschluss beworbene bedingungslose Erstattungsgarantie wurde verwehrt, wegen reduziertem Aktionsangebot.
Documentation
Im Kleingedruckten steht, dass Angebote vom Rücktritt ausgeschlossen sind, beim Kaufabschluss wird nur mit Erstattungsgarantie geworben.
I used this to: Ich wollte das Programm für die Bildergalerien meiner Fotografen-Webseite benutzen, kann es aber nicht verwenden, da es scheinbar mit irgendeinem anderem Plugin nicht kompatibel ist. (ich benutze z.B. SmartSlider 3)

Error in fronted

I try to install gallery in 2 sito but say error every time. Support is very fast, but we haven't solve problem.
Ease of use
When I try to open gallery in my site not show foto, display error 404.
Support
Documentation
I used this to: To insert photo in my site; The demo component is very pretty, but I can't run un my sites.
Functionality
Eigentlich eine nette Gallerie. Hat allerdings reichlich Probleme mit großen Bilderbeständen über 1000 Stück. Läuft dann nicht mehr sauber.
Ease of use
Die Einrichtung geht so. Könnte schöner gelöst sein. Zumal die Übersetzungen teilweise total falsch sind.
Support
Versprochen wird viel, gehalten wenig. Bei jeder neuen Version etliche neue Fehler. Und man soll für jeden ein extra Ticket aufmachen.
Documentation
Existiert nicht wirklich. Ein paar wenige Anhaltspunkte, das war es leider. Doku kann man dies nicht nennen.
I used this to: Ich nutze es lange für eine große Gallerie. Aber nachdem die 5er Version nie wirklich sauber mit meiner großen Datenbank lief, und das Geschäftmodell jetzt so umgebaut wurde, das man für jede kleine Funktion extra zahlen soll, war es das. Ich zahle nicht Hunderte von Euros p.a.

Best Gallery Extension

Functionality
The functionality of FW gallery is the perfect solution for publishing multiple galleries with sub galleries because of its tree structure i
Ease of use
Very intuitive. I find it easy to use and it allows me to set up multiple showcase galleries to offer a great user experience
Support
I have been using fw gallery since the early days of j2.5 and I actually never had an issue needing support. It has worked like a dream.
Documentation
The documentation is comprehensive leads you correctly to al steps necessary to pick up the works of the gallery and its options straight aw
I used this to: Sites needing multiple category galleries and gallery trees for the purpose of showcasing products. For me it is an excellent product! I highly recommend it over other gallery extensions specially if you have a large volume of categories and items to display. It is very versatile

Molto bene

Functionality
Poche trenta foto nella versione free, ma ultimamente vedo che tutte le gallery di joomla fanno così.
Ease of use
Molto semplice da configurare, intuitiva e veloce. Si configura bene, anche se la traduzione lascia un po' a desiderare.
Support
Documentation
I used this to: Il sito di allestimenti feste di un'amica. Serviva una gallery che mostrasse i suoi lavori.
Functionality
It presents picture albums with captions and nothing else. Exactly what I need for a non-commercial, private family website.
Ease of use
The absence of commercial and social media features makes it very easy to set up and use.
Support
Didn't need it. That is perfect support.
Documentation
It is simple and the documentation is simple..
I used this to: Presenting large numbers of family photos in many albums on a private, non-commercial website.
Functionality
Very good.....my only niggle is that it does NOT have a search facility, which surely is a basic, essential feature for large galleries.
Ease of use
Very easy to use....you shouldn't have any problems setting this up...all self-explanatory.
Support
No experience
Documentation
Very good
I used this to: A database of astronomical images

OK
Ease of use
Easy to use and nice templates!!!
Functionality
Overall pretty good. But I needed to provide admin access to a new usergroup and wasn't able to do this. No permissions in Global Config!
Ease of use
I consider it very easy to use. The only thing you may want to read up on is how to batch upload zipped image files.
Support
It's a free extension & support is non-existent. That's fine, but I don't see a community forum where users can share notes and help others
Documentation
Information can be found, though largely not necessary since the extension is easy to use. But there is next to nothing on permissions.
I used this to: Photo gallery on a non-profit's website. It's used mainly for the organisation's events and does a good job, mostly. The downside is that permissions could not be assigned to a new usergroup. I don't see permission settings anywhere. This is a major minus point for my purpose.
