Good working plugin for showcasing your online portfolio

I bought this plugin. But the problem occurred soon just after I started using it. When I asked about it they told me that they'll login for checking right away. But didn't happen anything for 4 days. So I had to ask again. According to them, the delay was related to new year holidays. They told me that they'll check this out for me on that day. Also said usually it takes a day or two days to resolve the issue. But I couldn't check their login on that day and don't get anything from them even now which is over 1 week after. I had to wait and waste my time so much. So I decided to write this review.

I thank the developers for writing a terrific plugin that works super fast with Optimole image optimization plugin also running on my site, I'm so happy that my more than 100 portfolio images load fast and display beautifully. Two suggestions for the developers though to make this great plugin even greater: Developers may want to get rid of the pesky semi-transparent background color behind the pagination and close buttons of the portfolio project sliders, as probably NO ONE would want this by default hiding part of their portfolio photographs. Also, I have had a hard time with the documentation, not very clear unfortunately.
