Cumbersome and useless to a photographer
By ,

This was a very convoluted piece of software - at setup it required me to go through several pages of settings that made no sense whatsoever in the year 2015, or to a photographer. Endless tables with subtables with settings, felt like I am doing DATABASE tables in EXCEL.

At import it loaded a total of 460 of my images RANDOMLY, out of which mess I had to pool photographs for my new albums.

I will forgo fotomoto functionality and look elsewhere.

Media Library
By ,

It does not work with the Media Library and I really dont want to upload 1000 pic a 2nd time.

Lost All My Photos
By , for WP 3.9.1

Lost all my photos (over 800) after a plug-in update. Tried all suggested mods to database with no luck. Poor support to resolve.

Quit playing with it every day
By , for WP 3.9.1

It's not that bad a plugin - not perfect but does an OK job for what some people want. But the author of this plugin needs to realize that people don't want to update this plugin on average every three or four days! Multiply that over multiple sites and his tinkering is costing us tons of time. (And it's interesting that several negative reviews on this same point keep disappearing from this plugin's reviews.. where are all those other one-star reviews that no longer show?)

Too many settings
By , for WP 3.9

This would work if it didn't have so many settings

Way too complicated!
By ,

A plugin is supposed to save time, this was way too complicated for me to pass onto a client's wordpress site!

Does Not Work
By , for WP 3.6.1

There are no instructions / links to get to the settings page after the plugin is installed.

Poor implementation
By , for WP 3.5

Poor implementation.

Consuming too much memory, too much get object for a poor visual result, difficult and complex to setup, ...

A lot of functionnality but far from the 80/20 rules. Too much stuff. in 99% of cases, others plugins will do the job much much better out of the box.

Rgds,

Lots of trouble
By , for WP 3.4.2

I was able to set up an album but couldn't get through the step of importing files into the album. Too much time wasted trying to figure out how to get it to work.
