A few issues...
By , for WP 3.5.2

Installed the lite version to try.

1. Doesn't save FB App ID
2. Social Gallery logo in the free version is a bit 'in your face'. I understand the need to encourage folks to upgrade but still.... make it a bit more subtle!

3. When I click on my social share buttons at the top of my pages, I get a quick view of this plugin appearing. Say I want to share my page to Twitter. I click on the Twitter share button but I get to see the a snippet of this plugin's lightbox appear... before it vanishes and with no share to Twitter. I click on the Twitter button a 2nd time, then it share to Twitter.

4. Clicking on my share Email button, doesn't work at all. I get an error saying "You must specify an "href" attribute to the iframe."
Deactivate this plugin and my social share buttons work perfectly and so it is this plugin which is causing problems.

EDIT: In view of the very positive reply from the plugin author, I have changed the rating to 5.

With epicplugins behind it this plugin will only get better!!

No idea how to work
By , for WP 3.5.2

When I download this plugin all I can see is the settings option, but there are no instructions as to how it actually functions within posts. Or how to use it after going through the settings process. I understand not wanting to have a forum for people who don't pay for the product, but I'd appreciate basic, accessible instructions. Please help!

I installed the light version and all I can see is how to upgrade to the Paid version. I can't add categories

No features in the free version. You JUST have to buy the Full....that's stupid!

I installed the light version and all I can see is how to upgrade to the Paid version. I can't add categories, images should be uploaded in a default size - If my picture isn't 600x800 for example I can't upload, nor my users! This limitation is useless.. The shortcode doesn't work, I managed to put only the Upload form to my page. Nothing else... And I can't ask for help because I didn't pay for the full version. Does anything know where I can get help or just activate another plugin? My purpose is to create a Photo Contest. ( I already tried with Simple Photos Contest - doesn't work; and Gallery Share - couldn't find the shortcode..)

Thank you very much!

Great plugin to create social Buzz
By ,

it´s a must have plugin, if you have a lot of nice images on your site.
and social gallery pages, which are created for you in the social gallery pro version is an ultimate conversion machine if you customize it wisely:

- create Buzz with your images,
- have your audience like, comment and pin them
- see additional social traffic coming to your site
- and turn them to your customers by presenting the best you´ve got on wisely customized social gallery pages
