SIGE - Simple Image Gallery Extended

Simple. Sweet. Just what the Webmaster needed.

You can easily extract the IPTC meta Title and Description from your image file and have it appear on both thumbnail and the single is great

Ease of use

Very easy. Upload the files, setup the options as you desire and you are done. Multiple galleries, simply copy the first article.


Not Needed.


Simple and straight forward. Basically an options list with extra hints and suggestions.

I used this to: Posting photos of plants from a Cactus Society monthly competition. I import the originals to Lightroom, process them, add Title/Description, export, upload. Multiple galleries from months/years.

VJ Calendar

The Right Choice

I set this up to view multiple private google calendars. When setting up the google service account, be sure to enable the Calendar API.

Ease of use

A little tricky to setup private calendars. The public calendar setup is a breeze.


VJ-Tools very responsive and provided the important details needed to set up multiple privates cals into one view.


The graphical instructions are good. I made a suggestion for a couple changes.

Value for money


I used this to: Small photography club with less than 100 members. They have four different private calendars for their event types. They prefer to use the google calendar because they can view it with their personal calendar on their phones.
