    Excellent extension - powerful and easy to use.
    First of all - it's component (not only module) with many options, like a categories and tags (native Joomla MVC). You can change number of rows and width / height of projects preview, also possible to set options like "More details link", "Link to project site" and "Open in lightbox". Inside project you can insert many images (or video) with slideshow, description and link (with button style) to project site. It's small part of options, that you can use with this wonderful extension. I think, that this is the best portfolio component at this moment on JED.
    Oh.. about support - it's really helpful and friendly!

    Very useful and easy to use extension. I needed something that can add video and sub-folders of images in the portfolio. This is the only extension that allows you to do it. I could not find another one with the same features.
    Support is super!

    Out of the box this extension works well. The front end looks and functions beautifully. I encountered a few glitches with the way I have it set up on my site and the developer was extremely helpful in solving the issues quickly. I highly recommend this one!

    The extension is a very useful tool which I liked from the very first start when I used the free mode. After a few hours I had bought it!
    A few issues I had with the template covered by the awesome support team!!! I have to say I'm very grateful.
    I have bought also the Skyline Menu Pro, another excellent extension! I recommend these two.
    Thank you very much guys for this beautiful job...

    Great support, I had a problem with my template, floating the gallery and the description of the project and been solved in reasonable time. Thank you very much.

    These guys now what programming and design is. Many times that does not go together but this is awesome. A great profolio! I had some new ideas for importing Vimeo clips automatically and they made a custom design for me with all features I need. Great component and even more greater service.

    Finally! Somebody made a Joomla Portfolio component that behaves dynamically, is beautiful and allows for multiple tag based display options. The way it stacks images of different proportions is smooth and lovely. I got immediate support with an issue unrelated to the component itself for my htaacess settings. Wow!

    I was looking for a solution to create my new portfolio, I have tried different modules or components and at the end I chose to try this.
    I tried the free version and after a few minutes, I decided to buy the Pro version.
    Excellent support, I had a problem with my template and after that they fixed, I asked another customization and these guys have solved all 2 times in less than 24 hours.
    Great extension and great support recommended!

    I was looking for portfolio extension for my futur website.
    This one is very excellent and the support is fast and very competent.
    Just I would like more easy customization.
    But I recommend this product if you want a good portfolio.

    I've looked for a solution of this kind for quite a while. Tried one component (commercial one) which was a total disappointment and the support was equally poor. Contact ExtStore with some doubts in mind and they gave me all the information and reassurance I needed even before buying the component. After buying it I had two small issue (one was not even related to them) and they solved both in less then 24 hours.
    This is the kind of support I wish to get EVERY time I pay for a product.
    Great guys, great product, highly recommended :)

    I was looking for a portfolio extension and i decided to buy this one.I am 100% satisfied from this product and more than 100% satisfied with the support.I was facing a problem which as it was proved was a problem of the template and these guys solved the issue and help me finished my project.
    Highly recommended , worths every penny you are going to spend.
