Almost exactly what I was looking for

Went through several other plugins before finding this one! Easy to use and worked great for the very simple requirements I had. Just photos in a grid that, when hovered over, show a title and a blurb over a colored background.

If it had been the first of the 8 or 10 I tried I would have simply stopped right there, saving me hours of implementation and testing with other plugins that didn’t make the grade for one reason or another.

I was looking particularly for a free plugin that did the hover thing with photos, and the free features of this plugin did the trick. I may or may not go to the Pro version in the future, but my thanks to the developer who created a free version that actually works properly and has enough features to be used properly in the non-Pro version.

Highly recommend this plugin!

Fantastic Support!!

Rameez folloved my suggestions to develop the plugin further with special caption, tints and hover effects.
Super nice and fast.

Cool Stuff

I’m using this plugin for a gallery style portfolio. Very flexible and well thought-out plugin.

Very strong first version

I am using this plugin to create grid gallery style portfolio page, with each image linking to a case study page. I especially appreciate this plugin’s balance of simplicity and customization. I have tried over 20 other image hover plugins and portfolio plugins. This one fit my needs the best in terms of 1) having a simple fade-in effect 2) the ability to paste short codes throughout my site 3) completely responsive. This plugin is not completely perfect just yet, and I did find a few kinks. However, Rameez was very responsive and helped me through them. This is a very strong first version of the plugin, and I expect it to hit a solid 5 stars in future versions. Highly recommended.
