Not intuitive IMO
By , for WP 3.9.2

Firstly, very disappointed in having an expiry date. I didn't notice it when I was paying for it and would like a refund solely on that basis.

Secondly, I don't find it in the slightest bit intuitive - the developers seem to have used an automatic software design model - like with 'categories' - where's the galleries or albums options? You have to create a new category then add media (making sure you use the new category), then add a cover, then go back to another setting to get the shortcode - it's actually less easy to use than free plugins IMO. It took forever to figure out how to put a video up - even the window used for previewing the media isn't intuitive - I had to provide instructions to users on how to start a slideshow etc. - work I shouldn't have to do with a paid-for plugin.

Pop Ups
By , for WP 3.9.1

Looking for a way to organize my media.
Installed the lite version and was instantly presented with a huge screen to upgrade. Clicked close... Clicked on settings again presented with an add to upgrade.


Might be a great plugin, don't know. Did not get a chance to use it. I will tell you this. It adds it's own media center. I was hoping it would just add categories/tags to current media.

Don't want my admin pages popping up advertisements.

Lacks functionality
By , for WP 3.9.1

As people are saying, lacks user functionality unless you upgrade to paid versions, with ads to do so being everywhere.

Online support s not workin
By ,

and generator button generates only basic shortcodes... If you want to customize it it wont return anything :(
I would survive if there is a list of shortcodes so I can write it on my own.
Very frustrating!

Great if you like LOTS of POP-UPS and SPAM
By , for WP 3.8.3

After constant pop-ups and spam to buy the pro version, I uninstalled it. I wouldn't even waste my time to evaluate this plugin or EVER consider buying anything from the developers.

Awful - Conflicts with Website / Support is Terrible
By , for WP 3.9.2

I purchased Easy Media Gallery Pro - and only to find it conflicts with my theme. I wrote and told the support personnel, with no reply. Then I opened a PayPal claim, only to find the author took my money, but did not help me with a solution / or provide a full refund as requested.

Stay away from this. Money making scheme. No Support and Plugin Conflicts.

No documentation, bad gallery management
By , for WP 3.9.1

It has no documentation for developers, and to edit a gallery I need to go the page/post to edit it. It does NOT fulfill the requirements to be a gallery. (I was using the Lite version)
