Lots of free templates are available here

I recommend expose for multimedia including video and photos of the galleries below.



Download the zip file to your computer.
Log in to your Joomla site and go to the extensions menu
Choose install/uninstall
browse for the zip file on your computer and choose upload file and install
You will get a message to say install was successful.

Thats it. The gallery will appear in the Components menu where you can set it up. Follow the instructions there.
For a good template: I had always used free templates but in my last site I opted for a premium one from Joomlashack (template name: Aqualite Noir) and I am very satisfied of it, especially it has a really cool drop down menu and the template works very well. The only downside, it is not free.

They have other templates, here see them all

I can recommend this because I have personally tested it; I would not dare to recommend you other templates I've no knowledge of.

Forgot saying, JoomlaShack also has free joomla templates. If they're similar quality to their premium ones, then they must be a good choice too.

Morfeoshow is also a very good choice for photo gallery. Unfortunately it cannot deal with videos.

How to add my photos and videos...
Make sure you install the component as well as the mod. This one com_Expose4.6.3

After it is installed Expose will appear on the components menu. There you can make categories upload your photos etc.

Expose system check
This scripts tests many of the basic requirements for the Expose component to run on your hosts system. It's not a catch all, but it does check most settings that the gallery requires.
If any of these tests fail with a Warning, the Expose gallery could run on your server. Sometimes little changes in the settings need to be done.
When any test fails with a Fatal Warning, the Expose gallery will not run on your host without changing the server configuration files, which usually, only your host can do. A possible solution at warning or fail of the test is provided at this time.
If the component, after a successful report, still doesn't function, we suggest to search the forum at for a fix.

Open in new window

Go to your menu and hit new. You will see expose in the list click this and give it a name alias etc. Make sure that published radio button is is checked. Hit save.

Expose should now be available from the menu on your website.

BTW it will still work with the warnings above (these are normal)

YEs it is working...But the problem is i am not able to add new photos or videos...
Can you log in to Exposé's album manager?
coolguy2009Author Commented:
Yes..But not able to see the add options...

Under the Description box hit the Create Collection button and enter a name. Then Hit the create album and enter a name. Once this is done the upload buttons become available.
