Matches all specific needs
By , for WP 3.8.1

This fantastic plug-in has lots of possibilities to customize galleries style and behavior.

Well designed and developed!
By , for WP 3.8.1

When you use this plug-in for the first time you'll wonder how clean and well structured it is. Managing and using galleries is intuitive and logical. The light-box effects are great. There's also a gallery archive which can be embedded via an explicit gallery URL. Every little feature of this plug-in is elaborated and realized very carefully!

Beautiful light box effect
By , for WP 3.8.1

I like that I can set up a lot of gallery parameters like the preview template, the fancy box background color and the number of preview items.
Another cool feature is the greyscale preview mode.

Gallery works great in lite version
By , for WP 3.8.1

The gallery works great, the only downside is unless you pay for pro you can only create one gallery

It used to work for me
By , for WP 3.8.1

The current version of the pro version is not working. And there's no way to upgrade to a support plan even if I wanted to, so not only does it not work, there is no help. Not happy.

Deceptive
By ,

This is the name that appears in the wordpress.org plugin directory:

Fancy Gallery

This is the name of the plugin when you download and install:
Fancy Gallery Lite

Plugin description has nothing about "Lite" only that a premium version is available. Original plugin description says nothing about ability to only create one gallery.

After download and plugin change name to Fancy Gallery Lite, the description technically lies stating that "Fancy Gallery Lite enables you to create galleries ..." when, in fact it only lets you create one gallery.

Beyond the deception, the UI & UX are crap on the backend. The front end is just OK but you can find the functionality anywhere.

Overall, not worth the time.

Complete crap since you only may create ONE gallery in the free version.

Pro Version - No Required Functionality - No Refund

This product by Dennis Hoppe shares its name with an identical (but a much better) product by radykal (Fancy gallery by Radykal).
