Very good gallery
By , for WP 4.3.1

I used a lot of galleries before trying NextGEN. Immediatly, I have been very happy with this is very powerful and simple tool. Finally I could do all I wanted, the result was nice and I got a very good feedback from my visitors.

I recommanded NextGEN to my clients who are all also very satisfied with this solution.

A few month ago I experienced a problem and as I didn't got the pro version I thought I wont get help, but NextGEN dev team answered me very quickly and solved my issue.

From my point of view, NextGEN Gallery is the best Gallery for WP, a reference and a must have.

The go-to gallery tool, and great support as well.

NextGen - Pro version
By , for WP 4.3.1

I’m using NextGEN Gallery PRO plugin with Photocrati theme and I'm not a high-class specialist in WordPress. Before I bought the plugin, I read carefully the instructions and examples on the Web. So I bought exactly what I expected. Everything works OK. I like NextGEN Gallery especially for two things: The new ligthbox and the galleries based on tags. When I created my website, I asked several times the NextGEN for help. People from NextGEN always helped quickly and precisely. Thank You. This plugin gives the photographers many possibilities. But it is worth to taking a little time to learn about all features. I recommend it.

Needs a lot of work!
By , for WP 4.3.1

This is a really frustrating plugin. Settings don't or only partially work. In gallery mode every thumbnail opens a new page. in completely different modus and often show no image at all. Piece of ....

quick and easy

Not that complicated, easy to use.
Hint: Would be nice to have the ability of moving/copying ordinary media uploads into the NGG. Or did I have overseen something?

Shortcode doesn't works

Shortcodes never worked...

Not the biggest fan. The settings pages are to complicated with no description what is doing what.

And I discovered at least one stupid mistake in the code. I set the gallerie to show thumbnails in 4 columns. But they always broke after the third column. So I looked at the CSS Code to discover that every div that contains a image had a width of 25%. Okay that looked right. 4 columns equals a width of 25% for each image. But then I saw that they added a margin-right of 5px to the same div - and that is - sorry my language - just (a little) stupid. Of course the columns had to break.

I hope they fix that error in the next update.

But that simple mistake doesn't make me confident about the rest of the plugin

Great support

What great support - a few teething problems (all due to inexperience on my part) were quickly resolved.
If only other software suppliers were so responsive!

Bad Choice
By , for WP 3.9

I used NextGen maybe a year ago, some things weren't so good, so I uninstalled it.

Then virtually ALL of my images were lost. Unacceptable.
