Event Gallery is a gallery component for Joomla!™. It allows uploading and manage your image collection and display it with several layouts. It fully supports responsive web design and delivers adaptive images. Besides this simple use case, it offers the ability to sell your images directly on your website.

There are two versions available:

  • Event Gallery Core

    The free version! This is NOT a demo! The feature set of the main component is not limited. You just don’t get the bleeding edge version and limited support.

  • Event Gallery Extended

    The full version! This is the bleeding edge version offering a bunch of additional modules and plugins as well as support. On top, you support the future development of Event Gallery. You can compare both versions by following this link: https://www.svenbluege.de/joomla-event-gallery#compare or with the table below.
