What a time saver

Hunting for code snippets to apply FSO to my pages took forever, File Genie does in minutes. Applying File Genie to Lightbox Galleries is an easy and fast way to add a gallery page to any website, and integration into the HTML Editor tools I can easily add new capabilities to my clients content managed websites. 

I wish I'd had this ages ago! Thanks
