Gallery 1.5 is Here! New Grid Layout Without Cropping

Hello and Happy New Year everyone! 2016 we will start with an amazing update for our Joomla Gallery component. Time to Say "Hello" for new Gallery layout Random Grid and full sized pics without cropping!

Random Grid and Full Sized Pics

Random grid layout is an incredibly big step for our Joomla Gallery component.

The most important feature of Random Grid layout is not cropped thumbnails. Your visitors can view full sized pictures.

In other words, if you uploaded the picture with 16:9 ( Aspect Ratio) on website will be displayed absolutely the same picture, with the same aspect ratio.

The Image width and height, as and on previous Gallery layouts, depends from the container width and number of columns.

The difference between not cropped and cropped pics, you can view here: Gallery Masonry Grid (cropped) and Gallery Random Grid (not cropped). Pay attention, the both galleries have the same pictures!

Without a doubt, we are confident that you will appreciate the new grid layout and the ability to display pictures without cropping. Very useful feature if you need to show full sized photos without cropping. Enjoy!
