    is there any plugin or way to add pictures by link to nextgen gallery?
    instead of uploading photo to hosting adding photos by url hosted in other place.

    once added url system will create only thumb image and on the image adress will be written only url.

    Need possibility about caption also.

    I don't think your going to find a way for NextGen to grab images off of an external site.

    Do you own the site? Grab the pictures from there to make it easy for yourself. If you don't, it isn't really very nice to "leech" images from another site. It can even be illegal.

    Why do you want to add the grab the pictures from another site?

    There is a caption template, which can be used like so (replace * with the gallery id you want to display):

    [nggallery id=* template=caption]

    The caption will be taken from description portion of the image data. You can actually stuff html and just about anything you want in there too.
