Our paid version only removes the link "Ozio Gallery by Joomla.it", but some of the old flash skins, still contain links to the authors of the flash components themselves.
To remove such links, you are required to purchase a commercial version of the flash component directly by the respective authors.
We are not affiliated with or endorsed by the authors of the Flash parts included in Ozio Gallery.
The extension installation of Ozio Gallery comprises a component and two plugins. These are loaded and activated automatically during the installation.
Ozio Gallery now consists of a single skin called "Fuerte", all other previous flash skins have been removed and are no longer supported. The skin Fuerte is in Java Script, not in Flash, but is also ready for viewing by mobile devices, while the Flash skins could not be displayed properly on mobile devices.
To use the skin Fuerte is necessary to upload your images to an album in Google Plus. This Google service is fast, simple and free. And it's possible to create unlimited albums with unlimited images. There is no need to resize the images before uploading to Google Plus, so it's highly recommended to load the images at their original size without losing time to resize them. Ozio Gallery will find the image and automatically correct the size based on the available space of the gallery on your site.
After loading the images in Google Plus you can integrate on Joomla site, you must create a new menu item with the component Ozio Gallery 3 and the skin Fuerte. In the first parameter of the menu item should specify the ID code of the Google Plus page where the album is. You can view this number of 21 digits in the address bar when viewing the list of albums.
For exemple the page URL is this: https://plus.google.com/u/0/110359559620842741677/photos
the code to enter to view the photos of these albums is therefore 110359559620842741677
You can then enable the vision of your album only from your site and not from Google Plus, it's very simple: you can make private the albums on Google Plus by not sharing "Public" and share them with your circle. Google will show you a special link to access these private albums, at the end of this link you will find the authorization code
In the parameters of the menu item on your site you should select Album visibility -> Limited and insert in the "Google+ album id" field the id number of your private album (19-digit number), in the "Authorization Key" field the code that appears in the share link after the authkey=
as the one selected on the image on the right.
Using the plugin to enter the galleries in content or form
Modifying or creating a new article appears below the Joomla editor the button "Ozio Gallery." Place your cursor in the position where you want the content displays the gallery, then press "Ozio Gallery" and select the gallery you want. Content appears in a code like this: that indicates the ID of the gallery displayed.
You can enter the code of the plugin also in custom modules of Joomla, but remember to activate the "Prepare Content" option in the Basic Options params of the module. The pluing of Ozio Gallery 3 is installed and activated automatically by installing the extension.
If you do not want to have visible menu items of the galleries that you have included in the content or modules or list you need to move these menu items to a new menu. Create a new menu which we will call such 'hidden' here we can move or create our menu items of Ozio Gallery 3 that we want to insert in content or form or list. This menu should remain published and also the menu items should remain published. The module of this menu may not be published so as not to appear on the site giving you the possibility to use also the galleries created in the hidden menu.
Create multiple image galleries on the same site
With Ozio Gallery 3 you can create multiple image galleries on the same site, each new menu item you create can be connected to a different album of Google Plus.
There is also a type of menu item that displays the list of all the galleries created with the skin Fuerte. An index with the image preview of each album, the title and other informations such as number of photos taken. Within the parameters of this menu item "Album List", you can specify which albums to show and set the thumbnail size.
For best results we recommend you create the menu item "Album List" as main menu item and the menu items of galleries as sub-menu of the list.
Album title and photo description
On menu item parameters enable "Show album name", this will display in the top bar of the album the name of the album present in Google Plus. To change this name you need to act on the page of Google Plus, go to the list of albums and save a new title for the album you are displaying in that menu item. After a few minutes in the gallery on the site will appear the new title.
For each image in the album of Google Plus may be associated a description that will appear in the gallery on the site. To enter a description is necessary to go to the album page on Google Plus, view the photo and on the top right click on "Add Caption", after a few minutes it will appear in the bottom bar on the gallery on the site.

Not only mouse...
You can browse the images in the gallery created with the Fuerte skin also by the arrow keys on the keyboard. Or (only for version 4 of Ozio Gallery) with touch devices such as tablet or smartphone the movement of the fingers on the screen to drag to the next or to the previous is supported (swipe).
Display additional informations
A new parameter 'Button Photo Info' has been included in the menu item for the Fuerte skin, if active is shown a new icon in the gallery. From this icon, you can see a box with a lot of informations about the image.
Also present the "Download" button to download the file and the map that indicates the point where the picture was shooten. Some smartphones and some cameras insert automatically coordinate data in the image file, so just upload the photo on G+ and Ozio will also show the position. But for all the other photos that do not have coordinates it is easy to enter them manually directly from the image screen on G+, in Photo details.
To see the location on the map it is necessary that the album on G+ is enabled to display publicly the location of the photos.
The module with the list of categories
You can create the module with thumbnails of galleries, is very simple. In Joomla administration, from Module Manager create a new Custom HTML module, press "Ozio Gallery" button below the editor and select the menu item list that you created. It will thus be inserted into the module the plugin code of that menu item. It's also important to set YES, the module parameter "Prepare Content" and associate it to the position where we want it to appear.
On the DEMO site: http://www.opensourcesolutions.es/ozio/ you can see this module working and it is responsive like all the gallery!
Open directly in full screen your galleries
With version 4 of Ozio Gallery a new template is installed on your Joomla! site. You can use this new template to bind it to one or more Ozio Gallery menu items created with Fuerte Skin. These galleries will be so visible in full screen. In the parameter management of your menu item, in the right column, you can find the parameter "Template Style" where you can select "oziofullscreen".
Map with geolocated photos
With version 4 of Ozio Gallery you can create the Map of photos menu item, this let yoor visitors see a nice map with the markers that point to their photos using the EXIF data or the geolocation. The map shows the photos in albums you've published. You can easily insert the geolocated point of each photo from the Google+ album, in the details of the image. Then, by inserting the map in a "Custom HTML" module, through the Ozio Gallery button below the editor, you can publish the map also directly below the respective gallery.
