HI I am trying to find a decent image gallery module / plugin to put a slideshow on my home page.

I tried Pretty Gallery but I can only get thumbnails that you click on to get to the slideshow.
I also tried to download Image Gallery but you need version 1.7 and I have version 1.6.

Any advice would be really helpful.

It depend on what exactly you need but with Orchard 1.7 you could just use Media Library to manage your media, then Media Library Picker Field on your content items to select some media items to form a gallery. This won't give you a proper gallery OOTB, just a list of thumbnails, but you can make it a lightbox or something by overriding the resulting shape templates.

I was struggling with this Orchard functionality and ended up with Juicebox Pro which I've been able to integrate seemlessly into our Orchard site. It looks/works great across all devices.
