A client ask for some how to show a set of images from a folder in a module. There was nothing available from Joomla Extensions so I wrote this.
I have no idea whether this would be useful to someone but here it is.
Install the module in the normal Joomla way.
The first step is to prepare the images you want to show. The module is intended to show images in a grid layout so ideally you will make them all the same size and aspect ratio.
This is good practice in any case as images resized in a graphics program will always be of a better quality than resized in a web browser.
Name your images all the same and add a number to the end e.g. gjc_logo1.png, gjc_logo2.png, gjc_logo3.png etc..
Create the folder on your Joomla installation and upload them. Fill in the folder path in the module parameters e.g. images/stories/showimages
Continue to fill in the nesscesary info such as the file name, in this case gjc_logo. Don't use the number or the extension.
Then the extension and the number of images to show.
There are many other parameters you can configure as listed below -
