Currently there are no known issues for this module.
- This module is *not* required if you just want to use Gallery 2 images in forums and other websites. But it makes it a little more comfortable.
- To find out the link to an image without this module, just right-click with your mouse on the image in your browser and choose copy image address. The option may be named a little different in your browser, but it's almost always right-click + choose the right option. Don't confuse the link address with the image/source address.
