If you’re using Jetpack’s Photon CDN, this plugin will extend the service to galleries created with NextGEN Gallery. Just activate it and gallery images are automatically served from Photon.
NextGEN Gallery’s image size settings are respected, meaning you can update your gallery image sizes on the fly without regenerating images.
Leveraging the WordPress.com’s cloud, your galleries should load faster and use fewer hosting resources.
- Upload jetpack-photon-for-nextgen.php to /wp-content/plugins/.
- Activate plugin through the WordPress Plugins menu.
Great concept, but I would not recommend installing. Plug-in does nothing (does not work at all) plus it apparently has been abandoned, as there have been no updates in over a year.
not working any more. it’s a crap
Seems easy. Installs easy, doesn’t conflict with anything.
But, I can’t find out if images load faster. The Pingdom score doesn’t show the site to be faster.
So, I’ll keep testing it, for now it is a 4 but could easily be a five once I verify that it is working. I have 2000 images in NextGen galleries and I hope they are loading faster.
