this is a great plugin.
I found the shortcode examples hard to follow

Worked very well
By , for WP 3.9.1

Worked well for the most part. I just couldn't get the gallery to center in the page, even though it was inside of centered paragraph tags, but whatever...minor thing which cost it the 5 star rating. Was way better and easier than other free gallery plug-ins, that's for sure.

Muito bom

Was a GREAT pugin before 2.0

I loved using this plugin on my sites, but since the 2.0 update and subsequent updates, it has really sucked and I HATE my galleries. I'm now looking for a different way to display photo galleries.

Many thanks to @edanzer for his help correcting my issues. I still feel the plugin is far less intuitive than older versions, but finally for the first time since July 2013, I feel satisfied with how my galleries look.

It does perfectly the job

Recently I acquired a hosting from a friend who retired, and the customer have Worpress Framework with NextGen Gallery installed, after I updated the site, NextGen updated also and works great, easy to use and probably will recommended to my other customers as well. 4 Stars? My only suggestion is to add a quick how to use guide in one of the tabs. I had to spent to much time navigating tutorials and websites try to find out even the basic use.

Newer Versions worked for me...

I have used this and even bought the pro version for my clients. It has worked well for us - better than previously. Only fair I revise since my experience has differed than originally.

*Original Review posted 1/2014*
Used to work but since latest version short codes stopped working properly - i see ALOT of people with this issue and error but noone seems to be doing anything about it... :(
I finally gave up and used a better written program for my galleries.
