WordPress Gallery Plugin

NextGEN Gallery has been the industry’s standard WordPress gallery plugin since 2007 and continues to receive over 1.5 million new downloads per year. It’s easy for simple photo galleries, but powerful enough for the most demanding photographers, visual artists, and imaging professionals.

On the back end, NextGEN offers a complete WordPress gallery management system with the ability to batch upload photos, import meta data, add/delete/rearrange/sort photos, edit thumbnails, group galleries into albums, and more.

On the front end, the free version of NextGEN provides three main gallery styles (slideshow, thumbnail, and imagebrowser galleries) and two album styles (compact and extended), all of which come with a wide array of options for controlling size, style, timing, transitions, controls, lightbox effects, and more.

+ Jason's Comments

A couple of things to be aware about:
1. NextGEN plugin uploads gallery images to it’s own directory, the images are not available from the WordPress image library.
2. The free version has a limited lightbox popup to show larger size of the thumb images. I found the premium upgrade for the responsive mobile friendly lightbox was a better option than rebuilding from scratch with an alternative gallery.
