RC Gallery is a completely free, easy to use, fixed-width gallery plugin for Joomla.
Justified fixed-width layout (other layouts available via an add-on)
Just like you can do with justified text, this plugin gives you an image gallery with clean, crisp edges. Better yet, it does it without cropping or changing the aspect ratios of your images.
RC Gallery looks great on all screen sizes, from phones and tablets up to desktop monitors. It also dynamically resizes as the browser window changes size.
Gorgeous Built-in Shadowbox
RC Gallery includes a gorgeous jQuery based shadowbox, with silky smooth animations done in a way that'll really make your images pop. If you don't like the one it comes with, you can use it with whichever other shadowbox plugin you normally use.
Easy to use
It's easy to add RC Gallery to any article on your site, with just three clicks from the article editor. It'll automatically create thumbnails for all of the images you include too.
You can change the image spacing and the size of the rows in your galleries, and choose whether or not to show the image names, depending on your needs.
While the plugin is very easy to use, its functions are documented in detail in the extensive user guide.
Some high quality add-ons are available, and more are in the works. Check out the available add-ons, as well as other extensions here.
