Would not recommend installing this plugin unless you know how to fix things. If you do decide to, make sure you back everything up first. Hopefully they will release an improved version asap as previous versions of the plugin were good.
I wasted an entire day trying to get NextGen to look half decent on my site and failed utterly. Thumbnail galleries would not line up in columns. I tried some .css fixes, read dozens of complaints from other users and finally concluded that the current version of NextGen is not usable.
In desperation, I tried Envira Gallery Lite. Within a few minutes, I had galleries up and looking very clean. It does exactly what I want, except for some customization, for which I will by the full edition.
When you get fed up with NextGen, look at Envira as an alternative that actually does what it says it does. (Note: I have no relationship with Envira other than being a user).
Extremely poorly tested plugin. Install at your own risk. Crashed the entire wordpress installation during installation itself. Had to manually do a lot of tweaks through cpanel to get wordpress working again. Wasted half a day of time.

It broke down whole site. And even after removing plugin manually, the warnings still there.

This is complex
I wish that there was less than star for rating
In the last updates next gen gallery bring me problems in my database. I bought the extension photocrati plus but still errors, i contacted support but they didn't do anything and after two months waiting I think they won't do it.
I would like to use a different plugin for images but in my website it is very necessary users can upload their own photos, i was using public uploader
BTW I upsated today the next gen gallery and still error
NextGEN Gallery: Tables could not created, please check your database settings and no solution whatsoever, I think I am goint to replace this plugin
I bought pro version. Table wp_options had size 2Gb after 1 week work with NextGen. Site has been crashed. Is it plugin? No. It's a killer of sites for your money
Love it / hate it.
I tried NGG on one site, it worked like a dream. It was a relatively new site and I was wanting to install a gallery where users could vote on an image.
After a happy first experience, I then decided to install it on my main travel blog.
Bam. No access to /wp-admin. Site still up and running but no admin access.
I logged in via FTP and deleted the folder for the plugin.
This gave me access but with many error messages.
I deactivated and then uninstalled every other plugin changed themes etc.
After removing all other plugins I reinstalled NGG and then tried to uninstall it immediately.
I keep getting an error when I first log in
"wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/nggallery.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in wp-includes/functions.php on line 4198
Warning: fread() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /wp-includes/functions.php on line 4201
Warning: fclose() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /wp-includes/functions.php on line 4204
Then when I try to make changes to some settings (not all) I get

I decided to do a test install on a third domain which was relatively new and I had only written two pages and a post. Crashed that one also.
I had copied the content of the two posts so it was a relatively simple process to wipe the entire site and database and start from scratch.
I then installed NGG as the first plugin and it loaded ok.
Now it could be said that it is not directly an NGG issue as it is evidently a conflict with one of the other plugins. Maybe the order in which they are installed.
My feelings on this matter is: the other plugins I use are aware of NGG when they are installed but NGG does not have the same courtesy to check incompatibilities on existing plugins.
So what I now need, is a list of every change that NGG makes to existing files/code and also every database entry so I can manually delete every one.
If I get this, then maybe I would possibly consider upgrading from a 1 to something higher. But with all due respect even though I would have given it a 5 star on the first site, the fact that it destroyed my other two sites... I can never now give it a 5 star
Any list of database entries and code changes would be appreciated.
Site crashed after I tried upgrading a couple of times from 1.9.13 over the past 12 months. Version 1.9.13 was great. Have decided to move on.
