Retina Support

Foo Gallery now comes with built-in support for higher quality thumbnails on retina-enabled displays. No more blurry thumbnails, just crisp thumbnails that look amazing on all devices.

Video Support

Foo Gallery now supports the creation of video galleries with the FooVideo premium extension! Create galleries with both images and videos mixed!

Albums Built In

Albums are now built in as an extension. Simply head over to the extensions page and activate the albums extension. A new menu item will appear that allows you to add albums just as easily as galleries.

Built For Developers

Foo Gallery was designed to be the most developer-friendly gallery plugin available for WordPress. It was also built on top of a solid extension framework, which means different functionality is separated out into different areas in the codebase. It also means the core plugin is lightweight, but still allowing for the most flexibility.

FAQ

Why are my thumbnails so blurry?

Have you enabled retina support for your galleries? Displays with retina support can show better quality thumbnails when retina support is enabled. To enable retina support, edit the gallery and locate the Retina Support metabox.

Can I add videos to my galleries?

Yes, you need to use the FooVideo premium extension

How do I get albums working?

Simply go to the FooGallery extensions page and activate the Albums extension. If you do not see a button to activate the albums extension, reload the extensions list by clicking the reload button.

Can I build an extension?

Hell, yes! Check out our developer page

Reviews

The last gallery you'll need!

styzer

I haven't explored the whole range of possibilities FooGallery offers, which seems to be extensive, but for a FREE plugin I have found no equal. And I have used many of them. FooGallery is simply perfect for my and my clients' needs. It is fairly simple to use, edit, adding and removing images use the WP Media functions so the interface is familiar, allowing custom URLs and very importantly in my case: ANIMATED GIFS! The support was a bit slow at first (happens to all of us), but the response was humble and friendly, and truly helpful. The developer *quickly created a fix and it was perfect! If you build sites for other people, this kind of support is priceless, as time - and your reputation - are highly valuable. I will be using FooGallery from now on for all my projects (and revisiting existing ones to replace other galleries used). Thank you guys! styzer
