I can't import image from Nextgen to porfolio

Looks great on the outside but unusable once installed
By ,

I thought I would try NextGen after having no end of problems with adding a fourth photocrati album to a blog.

The synopsis of the plugin looked very encouraging but the long and the short of it is, it does not work. After installing and activating, all text in the editor buttons have turned white so you can't read them. Even if you could, the buttons are inoperative.

Back to square one....

This is really the best free gallery WordPress plugin period.
Don't waist your time looking for similar solutions.

Better invest your time in getting to know this plugin and learning how it works!

Great job!

Just started with WordPress and the Risen theme

Integrating the nextgen Gallery and Album plugin to replace the gallery provided by Risen was a breeze, and it works first time without any trouble at all.

Only need one album and embed it in a page to use as the photo gallery page.

Then create any number of galleries and add them to the album.

Some mods to the nggallery.css file were useful..

slip a texture_bar.png (70x6) into the same folder (wp-content\ngg_styles\)

div.ngg-imagebrowser h3 { display: none; }
div.ngg-imagebrowser .pic  { border: solid 1px #6A8FAB; border-radius: 3px; }
div.ngg-imagebrowser .pic a img { height: 400px; }
div.ngg-imagebrowser-nav { padding: 5px 0; }
div.ngg-imagebrowser-nav .counter { color: solid 1px #6A8FAB; }
div.ngg-imagebrowser-nav .back { color: solid 1px #6A8FAB; border: solid 1px #6A8FAB; border-radius: 3px; }
div.ngg-imagebrowser-nav .next { color: solid 1px #6A8FAB; border: solid 1px #6A8FAB; border-radius: 3px; }

div.ngg-album { margin-bottom: 20px; background: url("texture-bar.png") top repeat-x; }
div.ngg-album .ngg-thumbnail {  margin: 0 20px 10px 5px; padding: 5px; background: url("texture-bar.png"); border-radius: 5px; }
div.ngg-album .ngg-thumbnail a {  margin: 0; padding: 0; position: static; }
div.ngg-album .ngg-thumbnail img {  margin: 0; padding: 0; border-radius: 5px; position: static; }

div.ngg-album { border: none; padding-top: 40px; }
div.ngg-album:first-child { background: none; padding-top: 20px; }

Nice gallery I use it for basic thumbnails and viewing; I haven't worked with all the functionality, but I'm sure it works just fine. Support is helpful, thanks BTW.

I like
By , for WP 3.9.1

For me it's simply the best pictures manager I've ever seen (and tried).
I'm operating a travel website and 1 year ago I tried loooots of plugins like that and they were all bad except this one. Some were great, but after spent time configurating them they didn't work, so !
I want that my visitors can see all the pictures I published in miniature and then they can click on one to expend. It's so a not really hard job but I it took time for me to find a good one that does the job well and reliably. site - [Site link removed]

I made a donetion long time ago and now I want to thanks them here.

The only bad thing is that for me the image resizer don't work good. Maybe it has been corrected since because it has been long time since I've not try again, I simply reduce my pictures by myself before uploading. It's ok at all anyway !

Thank you !
