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.

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

Second To None

Without paying a penny, the customisation options are second to none. Absolutely perfect for small-medium galleries!

Amazing. You cannot afford not to have this plugin installed.

Some things aren’t working

Easy to use and works ok generally but has some bugs. While settings allow you to disable hover icons or the linking of the thumbnail, in reality, the hover icon always appears and the image will always link to the full image file.

Right there for me

I found Foogallery and it seemed to offer the elements I wanted I was nearly there when I ran into tech issues, and in no time, the developer was right there to help and stuck with me until I got it sorted out. This is one satisfied customer. Thank you.

Outstaaaaaaaanding!

By far the coolest, easier to use, most intuitive, and flexible gallery plugin I’ve found. I wasted an entire day trying to find something to work with sponsor logos on a client site. I needed images to be responsive and have custom URL links. Thank you for saving my LIFE, Foo Gallery! I love you and will install you on every site I build from this day forward! Brilliant. Too bad there are only 5 stars for this plugin!
