What customers are saying!

“Tough to pick just 1 main reason for the rating. The features of this plugin are excellent and the developers are super responsive and helpful. Within 6 months they: implemented a feature request I suggested, helped debug multiple functionality issues that cropped up, spent a lot of time making things right. Highly recommend this plugin to anyone who is in need of image gallery functionality. I used this to create an application that allows members to sign up and create and manage their own user galleries.”

“Thanks to this plugin I was able to create an aerial photo community website in no-time. I encountered some bugs and minor issues during the setup process but the support by the developer was excellent. 5 stars!”

“We are so pleased with this product, and the support from the author has been over the top. We will recommend buying from the author anytime. When you have payed for your product, the response and help you get via mail is really a 5 star support.”

“ImagePress is the perfect solution for what I needed to make. It was easy to implement and the one difficulty I had (totally my fault, I simply overlooked a setting) was solved by the author’s prompt, courteous and precise customer support.”
