    I’m having trouble with this module getting it to recognise any PNG file format Which all my Images are in. I have put the PNG in the Image type in both uppercase and lowercase and all it says is”No images in directory……

    Any suggestions?

      Please check the image folder location.

      1. Open the file (helper.php)
      2. Go to line 51 (if (is_dir($dir)))

      In this line we are checking image folder, Please debug this line to find the folder location.
