“Save as Copy” feature for albums

With the “Save as Copy” you can quickly create similar albums. Save your time, add multiple albums with the same configuration and avoid setting up everything from the beginning.

Title characters limit in the slide description

When browsing the component configuration, you’ll find the “Title limit” field in the “item elements options.” This feature allows you to set the number of characters in a slide title that will be shown in a slide description.

EXIF data reader

Component’s users can now add the metadata information that will be added to images.

The EXIF feature is already a standard used in digital photos. Defining the metadata, you enable reading relevant info about a given image.

In the left corner of the image appears a link, which is used to display data in the popup window. The user in the component options can specify how this information will look like, how it will be shown and in what order.

Compatibility with Joomla 4 Alpha

DJ-MediaTools is fully compatible with Joomla 4.0 Alpha version. We suggest installing our slideshow and gallery extension and finding out how it works with this version of Joomla.

It's another component of our collection that works with Joomla 4. We’ve already added the Joomla 4 compatibility for:

  • DJ-Events
  • DJ-ImageSlider
  • DJ-MegaMenu

Of course, there are many more features in the latest release of DJ-MediaTools.

  • The latest DJ-MediaTools version is available for active subscribers in the downloads section. You can update DJ-MediaTools directly from the component if you have entered the license keys.
