Photo Gallery with slideshow function, video players, music and podcast, many templates (players) and powerfull admin to manage your media assets with
At first it did work. Almost fine. Quite slow and heavy, but anyway, trying WP after years Joomla is pain in the butt anyway.
But heck, never ever I could imagine the plug that was working yesterday will silently disappear today! It simply NEVER loads galleries anymore!
The point that in admin page everything works just fine, but in the frontpage - never! It took days of my time to really get it, that the plug simply doesn't work. Period! Piece of junk, yak!
Very bad interface, service has many bugs and won't let you modify galleries after a while. Cannot control uploads.
Don't use it, there are way more better plugins around.
This plugin seemed like what I was after until I realized some of the css is on their server and all the content you upload is as well.
I value the security of my content for clients, this is too bad they've ruined a good thing.
But, keep walking and please, get focus on "filtered galleries" with animation and "esasy effects" -- (both jQuery).

First of all this works great in WordPress 3.5.1 in case there was any question.
Secondly, this is by far one of the easiest to use gallery plugins I have ever seen, but it has some 2 major drawbacks which I hope the author will fix.
1. You can't use images in your media library. Instead you have to upload directly into the plugin. This is fine for someone starting a blog but a pain in the butt for anyone wanting to convert all their images to galleries.
2. You have to use the authors web hosting. Although he/she claims it is reliable, there is simply no way to know AND this opens the author up to some significant liability issues if that hosting fails or the author goes out of business. Also because you have to use the authors hosting there are some significant limits on how many galleries you can have a space you can use unless you pay the author for his hosting. This means not only are you paying xyz web hosting for your site, but now someone else to host your images. As awesome as this plugin no one should have to pay twice for hosting.
As much as I like all the features these two flaws prevent me from giving this a better review. I do sincerely hope these 2 items are fixed because I would love to change this review to a 5 star.
This is by far the easiest hassle free gallery plugin I have used. It provided everything I was looking for and I didn't need to take a class to use it.
1. The back end settings are intuitive
2. It supporst Photos, Audios, Videos and Podcasts
2. Different Templates to choose from
4. Demos are includeed
5. You can insert the gallery into any post, page or widget area
6. You can share your galleries with other WordPress sites
7. You can use the embed code for any other website that is not using WordPress as a CMS
8. All these features come with the free version ! Wondering how good the premuim is
I use worpress for a year now, but this plugin made my mind blow.
By far the best one.
Keep up the good work.
