    Dynamic Content Gallery looks awesome. I have been playing around on a test site, however, and as soon as I put this on the site loading speed radically slowed down.

    It could be other things, but in general, have people seen this plugin slow down their site significantly?

    Yes, the DCG can have an effect on performance in two areas:

    1. It does a WP_Query, so obviously adds some server side processing overhead. The Multi Option gallery method is less efficient than the One Category method in this respect.

    2. Having too many large (ie poorly optimised) images in the gallery will inevitably affect page load times.
