Liked it!!! Makes managing media simpler.

Most things work, some things work unexpectedly

The Good:

Easy to use gallery management.
Easy to upload.
Easy to present galleries and albums.

The Not Good:

Recent images widget eats portrait thumbnails, though shortcode in a widget (which is yet to have all options documented) works.

Hidden images in thumbnail view breaks layout.

Response to support forum has been non-existent when questions are posted. While I don't expect personal service to every question posted on a free plugin's support page, some attention to issues would be nice. Would hesitate to look into a pro license as a result.

Go-to Gallery Plugin
By , for WP 3.6.1

Gold standard for image galleries. The developers keep this well updated so it's one worth putting time into learning & working with. Have trouble with fancybox sometimes, would like to see a complete mobile solution... but there are tons of extensions out there that likely cover these bases.

Buen plugin gratuito

Works pretty good

Except that you need to reupload your images to make a gallery.
And also "Imagebrowser Gallery" paging reloads whole page! Even when I check "Use AJAX" in settings.

seems to have the potential to be something great

NextGen 2.0.7 absolutely does not work for me. In particular, I cannot even upload a single image. A problem that a lot of others seem to be having also. Since, I actually enjoy debugging I decided to try and debug this problem. Here I was really surprised. I thought this program would be garbage. But, it isn't. After reading some of the source code I am impressed. This is some really sophisticated engineering being used here. In particular, Photocrati seems to have implemented a PHP version of Python's Zope framework. I am not sure what happened with the release of 2.0 and 2.0.7 but the actual code is really some good stuff. So, I am giving you guys a 4 based solely upon the future potential of your work - your current work deserves a 0.

Thumbnails and HTML Tags
By , for WP 3.6

The extended view gallery doesn't display album thumbnails and html tags.
