I had a few complications while trying to introduce Photo Gallery to my custom theme but my developer managed to solve them, so I didn't need to contact Amasty support.
When managers understood all the intricacies, things got faster. Anyway, this tree album structure, creating urls, assigning albums to products, etc. are rather difficult. We had to contact support and ask a lot of questions. The techs were really helpful. They clarified all tricky moments, and checked the set up for us.
Now when the plugin is running, it saves time and provides nice-looking galleries. But I have to mention that module should be better documented, more detailed instructions are needed. Be ready to quickly contact support or put some effort in getting this thing to work.
Also the module is very customer-oriented. They said it helps to increase customers’ loyalty, and so it does! Buyers browse through the gallery longer now, some upload their own product pictures to share experience.
We had to get a few adjustments made but still happy with the module.
Tree album structure is a cherry on top of the cake - it helped us get away with monotonous album management. When you sell apparel – no product without a decent image is purchased, therefore this feature-rich app really made our life easier.
So thanks to very patient Amasty support - I'm not a Magento developer so sometimes I may ask questions that appear to be stupid to most of the skilled Magento users.
