Good Support and Nice Products Nextgen and Photocrati Themes
By , for WP 4.1.1

I am new to WordPress and did not wish to experiment a lot with themes or galleries getting started. So I did a little research and found Photocrati offered flexible WordPress themes and an outstanding photo gallery plugin - Nextgen.
I purchased both products.
Both products were easily installed and I began using both right away. I sometimes struggled with both products (because of my lack of experience and knowledge of WordPress). But I was always able to get encouragement and support from someone at the Photocrati & Nextgen company. Becky was especially helpful. I am still learning and trying to improve, optimize, and expand my web site.
I am not a good reference for technical support as I am still learning (maybe I will be a good technical reference in a few months). But my primary interest is photography - not web development.
I am very happy with both products (Photocrati Themes and Nextgen Photo Gallery). The company (Photocrati) appears to be very anxious to hear from customers and eager to produce the best product on the market.
I would highly recommend both products to anyone who is looking for a WordPress Theme or a Photo Gallery plugin.
My web site is:
Best of luck to you.

NextGen Galleries - Great Customer Service
By , for WP 4.1.1

My site went down from an update and I emailed NextGen after service hours. Within an hour of my email for help my site was back up and running.
Thank you, NextGen!

Great Plugin & Support Team
By , for WP 4.1

I've been using NextGEN for a couple of months. I use the NextGEN PLUS edition and all the features work as described on their website. I initially ran into an issue during setup and the support team were quick to respond and resolved the issue.
Months after the issue was resolved, the NEXTGEN team occasionally checks in to ensure everything is still running fine. Definitely recommend this plugin to others.
Thank you !

The perfect portfolio
By , for WP 4.1.1

I'm an illustrator and I needed a simple way to show my illustration in a clean simple style. Nextgen Gallery is exactly what I was looking for. It is easy to use and you have a lot of flexibility for the presentation. Only good words :)

Revising my Rating
By , for WP 4.1.1

I used it 2 yrs ago not so good was cluttered, seem more improved and working fine for my needs now.

No bugs noticed tested all galleries and function with album perfect for displaying my albums of work I do.


I believe most of the negative reviews come from people who don't know what their doing.

Excellent plugin and great support
By , for WP 4.1.1

I have been using NextGen for several years now and I'm quite happy with it.

Two times updates have caused issues with my site, but both times the support has been greate and the issue was resolved quickly.
