The design for the pro version is really nice out of the box. Especially the lightbox. I love the comment area, the ability to share, the grid layout and animations. This is the reason I ranked more stars than not. The design on the freebie version looks horrendous. It can be fixed via CSS if you are familiar.
Why not 5 stars?
1. There isn't an option ( that I can find ) to change or add other social icons. This has become an issue for my clients and myself.
2. What's up with not being able to search the images??? I spent
Overall it's really nice.
NextGen gallery is the best wordpress Gallery plugin, whenever I have pictures to show i use it. It has saved me a lot of time!, it is also mobile responsive, and looks great, there are heaps of options, even more in the pro version I updated to that is cheap as chips for what you get. If you had to write all this code yourself it would take you like a year! It is fully integrated into wordpress, and works better then any other gallery plugin.
Thanks Heaps to the NextGen Gallery Team

Even the simplest functions seem overly complicated. Switched to Envira instead.
I been a Photocrati/Nextgen, paid user for 3+ years. Love their galleries and therms. I have had multiple problems initially setting it up on my two sites but when I requested for assistance, always got it within 1 working day. Just scanned through my emails and and found more than 60 request for assistance and without fail received assistance with 24hr and sometimes over the weekend and within 3hrs.
All my support request went through their member support site at https://members.photocrati.com/account/ and I believe they constantly check on it.
I was delighted with the rapid and constructive support I received while upgrading galleries from the original Photocrati to NextGEN. The team could not have been more helpful or attentive. Many thanks.
I love this plugin! I have an issue with "Other Options" page being blank when "Huge IT Video Player" plugin is active. Other than that... very nice tool.
I've been quite pleased with the support and functionality of NextGen Gallery as well as the Photocrati theme. The plug-in and theme meet my needs nicely.I recommend them without hesitation.
Very flexible, easy to use.
Yes, hard purpose to build good gallery plugin for WP. Lots of requirements and needs from different users. For me - very good job for such hard task.
