Last time I used Nextgen it was quirky, but powerful, especially with the right add-ons. Now - since being taken over - it's useless. I can't even get it to display a single image and it's not for lack of trying. Quirky I can work with, this is worse than useless as it stands at present. I did look at the 'Pro' version but their site is so slow it was torture and I gave up.
