Default Joomla! newsflash module is poorly implemented

Joomla! awarded CMS offers a powerful admin control panel for articles presentation through Newsflash, Latest Articles and Category modules. The problem is that the code for viewing the module in the front-end is poorly implemented. Actually, the back-end offers 3 different views and a lot of fields about article presentation with options to be visible or not. But most of these options are not implemented in the module view.

The other tools

Photoshop has a great "save for web" command to batch optimize pictures with a few clicks. In linux world I wasn't able to find such a powerful gui program for batch optimization. The alternatives were Gimp "save for web" plugin, but lacks batching for that specific functionality. Phatch is a very good graphical solution for batch scaling, transforming etc, but the final result wasn't what i expected. The picture size had not been minimized enough. ImageMagick is a powerfull tool for the job, but no GUI...
