Best Joomla Photo Gallery

There are so many photo galleries out there for joomla 1.6 that it can be a though choice to download the best one. The thing is that there is no best joomla photo gallery. There are a lot of good gallery extensions and in the end it comes down to personal preference.

Best Joomla Gallery – Simple Image Gallery

The best gallery plugin for Joomla 1.6 that I found is called Simple Image Gallery. This is one of the most downloaded extensions on the Joomla website. I’ve tested almost all joomla photo galleries and I found that this one is way better then all other ones. It opens the image in full screen and has “Next” and “Close” functions. It cannot get simpler than that.

Features:

  • most easy to use Joomla Gallery
  • very fast
  • free, non-commercial plugin
  • released under GPL license
  • received the best reviews by users

How to install and use it:

First of all download it here. Install it in the “Extension Manager”. After installing it you will have to enable it in the Plugin Manager. Now write a new article or edit an existing one and enter this: {gallery}imagefoldername{/gallery} (for example if there is a folder called “cars” in your images folder  then simply add {gallery}cars{/gallery}. This will add all images from the “cars” folder into the gallery.)

Alternative Gallery – Ozio Gallery

However there is another one that looks nice, that I wanted to write a review about it. It’s called Ozio Gallery.

Features:

  • one of the best looking flash photo galleries for Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 1.6
  • 3D effect
  • it’s free
  • released under the GPL license
  • positive reviews on Joomla.org

Even though I don’t use it on this website, I’ve heard a lot of good things about it. It was created by Joomla.it and it simply is a working 3d flash gallery.
