Note that Showtime Image Gallery Custom Field require Joomla! 3.7 or later.

The best lightbox scripts right into your Joomla! site!

Showtime comes bundled with the most popular lightbox scripts. Each lightbox comes with it's own options for customization. Showtime allows you to set any option so you can customize the behavior and appearance of the lightbox.

Currently Showtime includes the following lightbox scripts:

  • FancyBox
  • FluidBox
  • LightBox
  • LightGallery
  • Magnific Popup
  • PhotoSwipe
  • SwipeBox

Gallery Preview inside Joomla! Content Editor

Don't want to use Custom Fields? Just insert galleries to Joomla! articles text using the Showtime editor button!

Showtime allows you to insert galleries directly into your Joomla! articles text using the editor button. You will get a nice visual representation of the image gallery right into the Joomla! Content Editor. The editor integration is available to all third-party extensions that support Joomla! content plugins!

Standalone Gallery Mode

Create galleries without linking to any content and display them using the Showtime module!

Showtime comes with a full featured administration interface allowing you to manage all your site galleries. You can edit all the galleries you have created (through Custom Fields or Editor) or create new galleries which are not connected with any content in your site. Then just use the Showtime module in order to display your image galleries.

Features Overview

  • Automatic image resizing during upload.
  • Unlike other crappy extensions that resize the images when the page loads, Showtime does this job in the backend when the gallery is created. This makes sure that your site will not suffer from slow loading times or white screens.
  • Fixed (cropped) or natural aspect ratio thumbnails.
  • Optional resize of the large images (images used in lightbox).
  • Option for converting all images to JPEG format or keep the original image format.
  • Option for rendering a module position in the image captions.
  • Drag-n-drop reordering of the gallery images.
  • Gallery images titles and descriptions.
  • Organise your galleries in categories.
  • Configurable lightbox scripts. Showtime includes some of the most popular lightbox scripts and all of them are fully configurable. You can change any of the lightbox scripts options by simply editing the corresponding plugin options.
  • Render galleries in a module.
  • Render galleries in Joomla articles content (or any other extension content that supports content plugins).
  • Render galleries in Joomla Custom Fields (supporting any extension that integrates with custom fields).
  • Gallery previews in WYSIWYG editors.
  • Watermark option for gallery images.
  • Front-end editing support.
  • Asynchronous uploads. All image uploads are performed using AJAX providing a quick, non-blocking user-friendly experience.
  • Chunked uploads. You can upload any image no matter how large it is. Showtime will perform the upload in chunks.
  • Google structured data integration.

Documentation
Value for money
Da ich die Komponente gekauft habe und sie ausgeprochen unpraktisch ist (jedoch leicht zu bedienen) ist es rausgeschmissenes Geld.
I used this to: Ich kann die hier positiven Bewertungen nicht nachvollziehen - unpraktisch und schlechter Service. genau das Gegenteil was hier steht
Owner's reply: The specific user posted this negative review because we decided to not implement a feature he wanted. He also threatened us with a bad review. Thankfully he represents less than 1% of our customers. The rest of them are pretty happy with our extension and that's why we have good reviews.
