This is the best gallery plugin for WordPress, Ive been using it for a number of years on several websites. If you like the free version try the pro version its well worth the few dollars. You get a selection of pro grids and slide shows as well as fantastic customer support. Their team get back to you quickly with sound solutions to your design or technical questions. A must have for any portfolio website.

Nice Gallery
By , for WP 4.1.5

Difficult for me to review properly as I only use a fraction of the features available.

Generally a really good and trouble-free plugin. :-)

Like all software it could be improved, for example the manage galleries feature is a little heavy to find the gallery one wants to manage, if you can't remember where it is - I have over a 100 to sort through...
Simplest fix imo would be a complete listing of gallery names/last updated which one could use the browser search engine on.

I also have an compatibility issue with the plugin and my php installation 5.5.24 , which I emphasise is not the plugin's fault - the way the plugin accesses the MySql db gives a warning when the returned string is empty - normally one can turn off warnings in php, but mine resists :-(

Not reliable

I'd love to add multilingual descriptions of pictures.
Add an additional field select the language and enter a description, and a gallery page to embed this way [nggallery id = 1 lang = en]

Almost 5 stars...

This is a fantastic plugin with a great set of options. Fast, efficient and broad. However... media handling for large sets is still less than optimal. It's significantly better than any others I've used and lightyears ahead of the non-management that generic wordpress comes with.

I'd love to see the CSS and HTML5 love given to gallery display aimed at gallery and asset management. It'd turn this great plugin in to a world class, everyone must have it, asset manager.
