My One and Only!

Posted on 09 January 2019
For my two photography sites it is exactly what I needed and has been ever since starting with Joomla 1.5. Now with 3.9, is still the King
Ease of use
The configuration was simple. Tons of options and was up and running quickly.
My sites weren't in order when I migrated to 3X. Support quickly responded and saved the day before I had even finished my nap. The Best!
Did not need to use it
I used this to: Complete organization of my two Travel Photography sites, loaded with thousands of travel images, histories and descriptions. Have used JoomGallery for a decade, and now entering decade number two . Works perfect for me. and
Zero. The component won't install for whatever reason. It says something from invalid syntax, no idea what the reason is.
Ease of use
I can't use it cause it won't install. Because of the lack of alternatives we finally had to switch to Wordpress and rebuild the site.
Absolute zero. I posted multiple times in both German and english forum, I offered a donation for a support answer - nothing.
We only had the installation issue and except some forum users with the same issue and no solution, there was no documentantion for this.
I used this to: Had it worked, we would have boght the pro version and we would have used it as a discussion module for our forthcoming magazine cover images. I understand it's free with reduced support, but there was really nothing. Sorry for the bad rating, but what else should I do?

Best gallery

Posted on 04 January 2017
Good structure, clean codes. I have rarely seen free extensions so well made. The component is responsive, the modules only Alfa Test
Ease of use
Clear administrative interface with many useful options. Easily it adapts to your needs.
Quick and friendly.
Pay attention: the online documentation is modest, but on the administrative panel every option has clear explanations. Very helpful.

Greatest Gallery

Posted on 15 November 2016
All features that i need. I have not seen a Joomla extension that is so extensive. And for free :-))
Ease of use
Very extensive with many many options. To each option there are detailed descriptions if one can read :-)
To each question I have found an answer in the forum.
Ok. Only screenshots are from older 2.5.x version. But this is not a real problem.
I used this to: Photo community with 10000+ photos in 500+ categories and full Joomla acl support.
Many functions. downloading of pictures in detail view seems not to work
Ease of use
It takes some time to understand how it works
I didn't manage to register to their forum (I always get an error message when I try). so I didn't manage to get their help.
I used this to: publish galleries of photos

a very very well gallery

Ease of use
yes, if you read doc, forum and Watch videos
each of my questions have been answered on the forum. Thank you!
I used this to: multi-users gallery
Has more functions then I will probably ever use. Very powerful extension
Ease of use
Once you learn the basics, it is very easy to use. It takes a little study (and sometimes going to their forum) to get the flow. As powerful
Have not tried support, but the forum has most of the answers and questions are answered quickly
Documentation could use a little work, but it will get you started
I used this to: At this time I am using it for my personal site, with 2 parent categories and lots of child categories. Hundreds of images.
A powerful component that allows me to customize it for my site. I can create different category of photos.
Ease of use
Very easy to install and start using. Admin has a lot of option and it may take some time to customize.
The forum is rich in content and I found the answer to my question before posting a new message.
Good and well organized documentation.
I used this to: I was looking far a good photo gallery for my client site and Joomgallery is perfect. A Free extension, It's better than many commercial image gallery.
