Free Content-Plugin to create a simple image gallery based on 'prettyPhoto (x)' display engine (a jQuery lightbox clone). Images from folders or directly inserted into the content/article can be processed with automatic thumbnail generation.
(x) prettyPhoto:


  • supports jpg, png and gif images
  • automatic thumbnail generation and smart caching for better site performance
  • processing of manual inserted images as well as all images in folders
  • in folders option to include subfolders and to use file-filters
  • settings for thumbnail width, height, crop to square, quality, padding, vertical and horizontal alignment
  • different layout options for the thumbnail appearance
  • optional Logo/Watermark for thumbnails with different positions
  • parameter inline overrides for custom settings per gallery
  • captions and image descriptions can be assigned either via text-file for images in folders or by 'alt'/'title'-attribute in img-tag
  • display caption for thumbnails (above, below or on the thumbnail-optional)
  • limit the number of thumbs to be shown in content/article (all will be displayed in the 'prettyPhoto' lightbox)
  • custom global description text (per gallery for all images-optional)
  • custom link popup text for all links (optional)
  • thumbnails only-mode (no 'prettyPhoto' lightbox is used, just the thumbs are displayed)
  • prettyPhoto only (stand-alone, no thumbnail will be generated)
  • plugin keyword free selectable for easier conversion from previous used galleries
  • css class-suffix handling
  • valid xhtml

I just wanted to show some images in an article, with my own descriptions. It says works with captions and it does.
Ease of use
Unzip it to your tmp folder and install from there.
No need to.
Clean and simple.
I used this to: Own website.
This is such a great plugin.

i see its almost discontinued now and this is such a shame.

Please make it for Joomla 3 as well.
less queries that SIGpro. Good flexibility in customizing. Has watermarks. I like this ppGallery!

Such a gem in fact!

pPGallery is a very quality stable extension with many options and one of the best engine (prettyPhoto).

It's much much better than Simple Image Gallery Free and for my needs pPGallery works better than Sigplus.

Support is excellent.

I only hope author will make a version for Joomla 3x one day...

Great !

Great plug in, works out-of-the-box.

Just what i needed.
This plugin works very well, is easy to use and looks nice.

I use it since 2010, and now migration under 2.5, still runs perfect.

My front-end users are happy, so am I!

Thank you!

Perfect! (almost)

Exactly what I've been looking for. I needed sth. that makes a gallery out of links to images that I insert from a database request, not simply images from a given directory (pPGallery can do that, too, but I don't need it ...). Nice preset effects, easily customised.

Only issue I had was that the thumbnail spans had a greater size than the thumbnails. There are constant numbers of pixels added in ppgallery.php, near line 363. Why these are added is beyond me ... I simply deleted those constants, now everything's fine. Thank you!
A decent plugin that is simple to configure and does the job. Another benefit, the support pages are easy to find and give examples of configurations to follow.

works perfect
