Works nice, seems well supported.
By , for WP 4.2.2

I switched from Royal Pretty Photo when that plugin stopped operating correctly, and this was a seamless transition.

Terrible on mobile
By ,

This plugin does NOT work on mobile. I have an iphone 5, and if you click the photo it opens completely off-center from the screen. You can't even scroll around and try to re-center without the image disappearing again. Such a disappointment, because it works fine on desktop.

Complete crap

no instructions, you cant even see where the plug in goes once its installed. this needs to be removed

Great Plugin Simple, Easy to Use

This is exactly what I need.. something with little overhead, to just lightbox display a single image when needed. Thank you very much!

Where's the documentation?
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin comes with no instructions. The profile for it here on WordPress.org is half filled out. There's no way to guess as to how a gallery works, or pretty much anything that isn't an image. The plugin doesn't open .FLV files whatsoever.

Pretty Good Photo Plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

Plugin works well once installed. Just follow the simple instructions and everything works as it should.

Suggestion: it would be great if there was a way to somehow incorporate this plugin for galleries too.

This plugin is only halfway finished
By , for WP 3.5.1

I won't go so far as to say this plugin is garbage, because I'm sure the developer is trying, and it may be their first plugin. But it doesn't work on galleries, which is usually why you want to use a lightbox, so the plugin is only halfway finished. I'm taking the time to write this review because it is SO very lame for the developer to tell people to go write code to handle galleries when another prettyPhoto plugin exists that handles galleries just fine. That plugin is "prettyPhoto Media" 1.4 by binaryhideout. If you want to use prettyPhoto, just go install it because it works fine on galleries: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/prettyphoto-media/


poor customer support
By , for WP 3.5.1

The customer support for installation of this plugin is atrocious. almost none existent. Yet they complain that the same question keeps being asked. While at the same time they havent thoguht of creating a step by step guide to using this plugin after installation.
its one thing to be creative, and its another thing to be able to get someone to use your creation.

a step by step tutorial is what is required, rather than just assuming everyone knows where everything goes.

For example: a step by step guide to using prettyphoto in a Theme you have just purchased. (this includes explaining WHAT page to insert code)
