I'd love to add multilingual descriptions of pictures.
Add an additional field select the language and enter a description, and a gallery page to embed this way [nggallery id = 1 lang = en]

It works perfectly.

Almost 5 stars...
By , for WP 4.2.2

This is a fantastic plugin with a great set of options. Fast, efficient and broad. However... media handling for large sets is still less than optimal. It's significantly better than any others I've used and lightyears ahead of the non-management that generic wordpress comes with.

I'd love to see the CSS and HTML5 love given to gallery display aimed at gallery and asset management. It'd turn this great plugin in to a world class, everyone must have it, asset manager.


Solid and stable plugin and great support
By ,

My site has over 5000 images and NextGEN with NextGEN Pro handle albums and galleries and ecommerce really well. It also supports mobile delivery, multiple display options, automatic thumbnail generation, and automatic water-marking and so much more.

I am most impressed by the support, especially from Cais and Becky. The plugin developers seem personally interested in helping me integrate NextGEN and also seem genuinely interested in hearing about my feature requests even if my business requirements are quite specific. Honestly, I don't know how they have the time to take such personal interest.

I often like to build things myself - but when it comes to images and WordPress, NextGEN and NextGEN Pro is so very altogether worth it.

... unzuverlässig, träge.

Great Plugin Highly Recommended
By , for WP 4.2.1

I installed NextGen Gallery and it works perfectly.
I love the fact that I can develop and post blogs directly from LR
One word of warning though.
Don't try to upload your gallery until the NextGen plugin has completed creating the post on your WordPress site.
It can overwhelm your server, and it may incorrectly detect the data as a malicious attack and blacklist your IP address.
Easily remedied by contacting your hosting provider, but it's a pain.
Just slow down and make sure the progress bar in LR has completed before hitting the 'Publish' button on the images you'd like to upload.

NextGen Lightbox gallery working fine
By , for WP 4.2.1

I recently upgraded to NextGen Pro and had trouble getting the lightbox full screen slideshow function to work. NextGen support staff (especially Becky) were great and worked on minor fixes to get my site up and running smoothly. Thanks!

La galère des dev-front
By ,

Tous sautent à chaque mise à jours du plugin, trop galère pour les override/styles.
Mieux vaut utiliser les galeries core de WP et un plugin de lightbox !
