I think I’ve tried almost every WP gallery and slider plugin available. This is by far the best gallery for showing lots of photos in a gallery format or a slideshow. Great pre-built skins and lots of options without being overly complicated. Absolutely LOVE this gallery plugin. Thank you!!!

This is the best gallery plugin I’ve tried, and I’ve tried quite a few.

Hello! I want to use the plugin on my website, but when inserting the shortcode it doesn’t work. I am using WPbakery to assemble the pages. Is there another way to do this? Perhaps an insertion plugin that works.

I am using and works wonderfull. (Note: can not work with lazy load) Very easy to use with powerfull settings. If have Social media share tools, comments and LIKE, it will be PERFECT!!! Good WORK… Thank You.

This plugin is awesome. Loads of control over how things look, clean, works really really well and easy to use too. If that wasn’t enough the support is fantastic. I have one pro version and use the lite version on a few sites too. Brilliant!
