I tried a lot of different galleries, but i prefer Rapidgallery.
Easy to use, and a professional look.
Great support via the forum, and very cheap...

Great functionality
23 Sep 2013

Very easy to use, yet great functionality. I've tried many different galleries extensions and this is the best I've found for small to medium sized galleries. It doesn't have a category component or view categories type page which are helpful for larger galleries.

Great Extension!!!
28 Feb 2013

I am enjoying this product.
What I found really useful is the easy way to customize the style of the gallery. I didn't like to buy extensions also because I was thinking it was a waste of money but not this time. Now I feel more comfortable to buy them.

Also the support was nice and professional.


Beautiful and Simple
1 Jan 2013

A very elegant extension that works beautifully on my site. Very simple to set up and use as well and a great way to be able to incorporate a lot of images in an unobtrusive way on a single page. Well worth the very low cost to purchase it and then some.

The video tutorial and text documentation on their site are very well put together too and explains everything you need to know about the product in simple and easy to understand way which is the mark of true professionalism.

10 out of 10 from me. :)
