    Hi, I'm using the latest Next Gen and the latest wordpress, my thumbnails come up distorted in Internet Explorer 8. They look fine in Safari, Opera, Firefox, etc. Not sure why this is doing this in Explorer? They pop up when you click just not sure how to fix the distortion. Thanks for any input.

    I'm having this problem, too in IE8.

    Used this post to cobble together a solution:


    Here's what I did:

    Edit your NextGen plugin nextgen-gallery/css/nggallery.css file

    Add this style setting
    width: auto;

    .ngg-gallery-thumbnail img

    Works great.

    Suggestion: incorporate this change into the next update to the plugin.

    Although the fix I posted about above works fine, it is susceptible to being "un-fixed" if there is an update to the plugin that does not incorporate a fix for this problem.

    With that in mind, you can also effect a change to the CCS for this plugin by using another plugin "My Custom Css" (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/my-custom-css/). This is a very useful plugin for making any kind of CCS custom styling you want/need. It saves any added custom CSS in a separate file that will not be overwritten by theme or plugin upgrades. I needed to add some custom CSS for another different fix, and found this gem of a plugin. I highly recommend it.
