Estensione Superlativa

Posted on 17 December 2020
Ozio Gallery ha davvero tante ottime funzionalità, ma soprattutto è una fotogallery responsive ma per davvero.
Ease of use
molto facile da usare, infatti si chiama OZIO ;) una volta installata, basta seguire le semplici istruzioni che si trovano nel loro sito
Ozio ha nel supporto la sua forza, ALexRed mi ha aiutato in maniera davvero cortese e soprattutto ha risolto. Eccezionale.
Buona la documentazione, niente da dire. Le spiegazione sul post installazione è chiarissima anche per i neofiti
I used this to: La uso per tutti i miei siti, e non saprei come farne senza. la metto un po' dappertutto sia in articoli sia in homepage, sia come modulo classico
Does what it says. Adds photo galleries to your website from Google Photos albums.
Ease of use
You have to make the galleries as menu items which seems a bit cumbersome, however I have a lot of galleries so it makes sense for me.
I think Alex answers directly and is always very helpful to show you how to fix things.
Excellent documentation which is needed, you have to read it well.
I used this to: I used this to add photo galleries to my site from albums in Google Photos.

slow loading

Posted on 28 August 2020
basically does what it should. The loading time to display the albums simply takes far too long.
Ease of use
once it is set up, it is relatively easy to use.
i only use very simple whitelist filters nothing else
Without a Facebook account there is no way to contact support. :/
available. is enough for what I need, but could certainly be a bit more detailed in parts.
I used this to: hiking club, hiking club, hiking club, hiking club, hiking club ......
It's one of the best Google photos integration with Joomla........
Ease of use
Very easy to set up and use. Got a few layouts to choose from... And works as expected.
Awesome support. Prompt each time. Simple documentation. Gets the work done.
I used this to: School website.. works great. Their support is just awesome.

Only had some minor issue with accounts with 200-300 albums... Since Google photos API does not have paging/filter option...

Ha molte funzioni, prima fra tutte è quella di essere "Responsive" con foto anche di dimensioni elevate.
Il caricamento delle foto su google
Ease of use
Una volta inserite le credenziali google tutto fila liscio. Estensione dalle molteplici caratteristiche.
Il supporto è eccellente. AxelRed ha risposto alle mie esigenze molto rapidamente ogni volta che era necessario il supporto.
I used this to: Album fotografici sul mio sito personale e album fotografici per il sito Web
So far so good. I have used it for the past 1 month now and I can't complain. It is working just as I expected.
Ease of use
The extension is easy to use owing to its easy to follow installation and launching instructions.
I used this to: showing Google photos on my cra portal in a responsive and nice way
One thing I like about this extension is the ability to create a hidden menu of the items, which can then be accessed using a call function
Ease of use
With the documentation provided, the extension is definitely easy to use. I find the installation process simple to be completed by a novice
I paid for custom assistance, and I must say AlexRed is one great guy. He came through with some modification tips.
I used this to: creating hidden image menus for my beauty blog with images integrated directly from Google
Still new to Joomla, and this extension is one of the reasons I like it. It came in handy when integrating Google photos
Ease of use
Well, it is generally easy to use. The documentation helped in troubleshooting issues I faced during installation.
The author was responsive to my request. All of my concerns were addressed promptly. I hope they continue with the same attitude.
I used this to: Adding car photos on my vehicle classifieds blog. It was necessary to integrate some photos directly from Google to avoid copyright issues.
Worked perfectly. Challenges related to image manipulation in similar extensions/plugins were absent here.
Ease of use
The extension is easy to use, generally speaking. However, once in a while I had to refer to the easy-to-understand documentation files.
The documentation is easy to follow because it uses non-technical terms for an ordinary user like me.
I used this to: Periodical integration of celebrity photos on an entertainment website
The extension performs its functions as expected thus making it easier to properly integrate relevant google photos into the blog's posts.
Ease of use
As developed, the extension is easy to use compared to other similar plugins/extensions.
I used this to: inserting select Google photos into my blog to make category slides
