Excellent Feature Rich Plug in with prompt support
By , for WP 4.5.2

Have used this plug in on 5 very different sites all requiring images to be presented differently. This plug-in has proved reliable and when I needed support (for the first time) this week - the response was competent and prompt.

Name and SLUG gallery
By , for WP 4.5.2

With this version 2.1.31, when I put the name of the gallery "Morning-with-PČR" and the FTP folder is created with capital letters and accents. The database creates bad "slug" and then can no longer appear on the site.

NetGEN is broken!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO ONE WILL ANSWER MY POST
By , for WP 4.5.2

I am not a high level programmer! I am only a user of WP. I have a problem with update WP 4.5 and NextGEN Gallery 2.1.31 that has come out of the blue. I am using Theme Catch Box. Cannot upload images to any Gallery that has been in use for years and I have used NextGEN for 2/3 years with not one (1) single problem. Now I cannot upload any images even after using the NextGEN reset plugin. Today I have lost the settings selection to configure NextGEN. I can access all of my Galleries and images. Need a simple solution that I can understand. My site is http://www.firstchristianchurchpensacola.org/ . Today a new problem is occurring ie - Your browser doesn't have Silverlight, HTML5, or HTML4 support. Error occurs with all 3 browsers IE 11/10/8, Foxfire and Chrome. ALL are the latest versions! My e-mail address is [moderated]

Extremely Reliable
By , for WP 4.5.2

The Good:
Works as intended. Works great for what its suppose to. In my opinion, this is more geared towards a developer doing this for their client. I would not have my client do this as the process is not straight forward. Lot of options / customization. Considering the support (if your using the free version) is optional, it was great. My issue did get resolved, I did get a responce in a reasonable time considering again, its free and they are under no obligation to do so, as many don't even provide support at all.

The Bad:
As stated above, a little complicated to set up a gallery. Once its set up its farly easy to add it to the page. Adding images to a gallery could be a little simpler, most of my clients don't understand how to do this. The exact difference of albums, gallery's etc is unclear.

Bottom Line:
If your ok with a little complicated to use each time then this is perfect. Its reliable (one client has over 800+ images in different galleries). Most other gallery style plugins crashed under that amount of images.

GIF format not supported, slide show cannot go to next page automatically......

Too many functions need to be improved

Gallery unmanageable in backend
By , for WP 4.5.1

All other plugins deactivated and still going in a refreshing page loop in the manage gallery pages.

Pro version fails to update properly with Security
By , for WP 4.5.1

Wordfence added the new firewall recently and this plugin's PAID versions get blocked by it also blocking the person doing the update.

The support from Imagely through email was initially dismissive and condescending. They also have not indicated they will be looking at ways to overcome this obstacle so if user technical skills are not excellent then they should NOT buy the Pro versions.
