So old world
By , for WP 3.8.2

Nextgen Gallery doesn't live up to it's name. It was Next-gen in 2001, not in 2014. It has a huge amount of features but these are not easy to use. The user interface is outdated and the last version 2.x breaks my WP admin pages.
Roll-back to 19.x was is the only fix :-(

It is not usable anymore, better choose another Gallery Plugin !
By , for WP 3.8.2

Hi,
Unfortunately I'am not able to give no star here !
Since Version 2.x NGG is simple not usable anymore ...

So finally I switched over to another Gallery Plugin and now my blog is also much faster and usable than before.

I cannot recommend this gallery anymore !

Work Like a Charm
By , for WP 3.8.2

Recently I acquired a hosting from a friend who retired, and the customer have Worpress Framework with NextGen Gallery installed, after I updated the site, NextGen updated also and works great, easy to use and probably will recommended to my other customers as well. 4 Stars? My only suggestion is to add a quick how to use guide in one of the tabs. I had to spent to much time navigating tutorials and websites try to find out even the basic use.

Pro version is a total waste of money
By ,

This plugin is essentially non functional, and I regret wasting my money on it.

This is what happens when a talented developer sells their product to a team of untalented programmers.

Not only does the site load time increase from 1.3 seconds to over a minute, the galleries look terrible. The biggest flaw is the way the navigation controls are forced off the page.

Not working after 1.9.13 version
By ,

I've the 1.9.13 version installed. All the updates after have problems.
One of them is about page speed. My site goes up to 17 seconds download page when normally is between 1 and 2 seconds.

I have no idea why, but when i enable this plugin my navigation disappears and many other elements. When I disable the plugin they all come back. Very Strange.
