NextGEN gallery has been my go to gallery for myself and clients for over 8 years. I have installed both the free version here and the Pro version with the ability to sell your photos and have only ever had an issue once. Which they were quick to take care of and very helpful.

I highly recommend this gallery to anyone that want to have the best gallery available for WordPress. If you are serious about your photos and want them to look amazing give NextGEN a try.

As you can tell I cannot speak highly enough about this product and I have lots of clients that would back me up on this also.

The first version of v2.0 had a view massive errors... But now it's a stable plugin! give them a chance!


Great support - will keep using NGG+
By , for WP 4.2.4

NGG has started out when nothing else was in the same league, and reached huge user base. There are alternatives now but some features, particularly Lightroom plugins, are not available in any other gallery that I know. This is the main advantage for using NGG for me. I also bought NGG+ and that includes support for the package. Honestly, if galleries matter to you then this annual cost is small, compared. When people complain about $30 per year for the software and then eat at a restaurant at $30 a meal, I become uninterested in their arguments.
I have to say that NGG was the only plugin in the last couple of years that I ever had problems with. One of the updates wiped out the WP control panels, forcing plugin disabling through FTP. However, NGG support usually responds within minutes and was able to point out relevant actions immediately, which ended up being limitations on PHP memory allocations imposed by my shared host and the MySQL version that they were deploying. I contacted the host and they upped the limits on my setup, and NGG worked fine ever since. So in the end the issue was caused by NGG but related to the requirements that my host was not meeting. NGG support was top notch.
I will continue using NGG and keep an eye open for other galleries. My observation is that NGG's light boxes are falling behind a little with the increasing competition, but the core gallery behind is still solid. Even if you choose another plugin for the front end that gives a wider lightbox selection, you can still use NGG as a gallery that connects to Lightroom plugins.
As always do your research and make an informed choice.

NextGen Pro plugin
By , for WP 4.2.4

I invested in this plugin as it allows for proofing images. This is a key feature for my business needs and it does the job perfectly.

The NextGen Pro plugin also integrates perfectly with the FooBox paid plugin which enhances the user experience and it highly recommended.

NextGen's customer support is excellent. My experience so far has been great, they are a very helpful bunch and willing to go the extra mile which often makes all the difference.

I highly recommend the plugin for any photographers looking for a proofing solution or anyone simply looking to add an advanced gallery feature to their website.

Top plugin and top support!

outstanding customer service
By , for WP 4.2.4

Yes, I do wish they'd start allowing us to accept coupons, but have to say their customer support is outstanding and the site looks great! Often intuitive to build with.

If you're in the market, this is well worth serious consideration


NextGen Plus
By , for WP 4.2.4

NextGen Plus is a really good plugin! NG+ is easy to use and the result ist amazing! I make all my galleries with NG+. To create a new gallery, it take only a few minutes time, without reading any manuels or anything else. And the support is perfect. I had a question and got in good useful answer in one day. And the contact with the supporter was really friendly.

The one and only wordpress gallery plugin you will ever need or want
By , for WP 4.2.3

I've been using NextGen on my website for over 5 years now and I have to say I am nothing but completely and entirely satisfied. It is easy to use, easy to utilize if you want to hook it up via a custom script, I had almost zero problems with it.

Oh, and kudos to your support guys :)
