Photo galleries for Joomla

There are many photo galleries available for Joomla. Here is an overview of those I’ve had occasion to consider.

CSS Gallery
Open source. For Joomla 1.5 through 2.5. Uses neither Flash nor JavaScript. Well written setup guide available. Easy to set up and easy for CMS end users to change images. Adding photo captions is beyond the ability of many CMS end users, however. Artifacts observed on images in Opera 11.62; images displayed fine on Firefox 9.0.1 and Chromium 17.0.

Phoca Gallery
Open source. For Joomla 1.5 through 2.5. Considered best in class by many. Multiple languages available. So full featured that some find it overwhelming.

Simple Image Gallery Extended (SIGE)
Open source. For Joomla 1.5 through 2.5. Multiple languages available, although not the one I need, Spanish. Active support forum. Easy to set up and use, and my current favorite.

RESOURCES
Photo galleries in the Joomla extensions directory. There are so many that I narrowed my search to noncommercial galleries available for Joomla 2.5.
