Gmedia Gallery - powerfull media library plugin for creating beautiful galleries and managing files (from creator of Flagallery plugin)
I love this plugin. Lot's of possibilities. After a bit of trial and error, I'm able to make beautifull galleries with this plugin. Four stars because it is not really intuïtive (I needed some time to figure out how to import files, add them to an album and create a gallery) and there seems to be no way to delete images from albums.
In realsider module, I noticed that the carousel image and the thumbnail image are using different images for rendering same image of different sizes. So for every single image we upload, the plugin is creating an additional thumbnail image, which can be avoided by reusing and re-sizing the main slider image. thus reducing http requests.
Have not used it very much yet, but I am satisfied With it so fare
nice, lots of work, tho
This is a really nice gallery addon. While it's not a full on gallery plugin, I love the fact that I'm getting a great image showing up in my posts in a size I like.
Other gallery plugins for me, create 3 sizes, including wordpress's own media. While this has it's place, when you want to show a large image without opening a popup window, it's nearly impossible to do.
What I'd really love to see tho in this plugin is an ability to filter by category or tags on the images in the edit post or page area. Like the wordpress media manager, once you have a substantial amount of images it just increases the load time. Imagine opening a new post and having the same thing happening with gmedia. It would be really great to be able to filter them to the category or tag you created for the images so your only loading those images in the category or tag. For that reason alone I don't understand why category or tags are even needed.
Please note tho, I am not using this as a gallery, I use this to post images in articles only, so for me, I'd just like to see that ability added.
I love this plugin tho, it creates a nice, crisp image, it's so easy to setup, and I would even go to the pro version if I knew I could filter those images on the post or page type edit page if this gallery addon did that.
That is the reason for 4 stars, if you want me to change my rating, please add that feature. :)
It save me a lot of tima not havin to wait for the cumbersome official Media Library to load.. My only complain is that I can use it in all places of my theme.
I love the entire process of using this plugin. I think there should be a bit of a how to in the plugin page after installation to walk through how to use it for first time users.
I would consider this one of the best if you can remove the loader in the beginning of the page. That is no good in my opinion. Also, I saw missing images in the lightbox for share, exit, and navigation arrows.
It's quite organized, fairly easy and looks good
