There are literally hundreds of options when it comes to photo gallery plugins for Wordpress. Today I decided to test a new one which was also one of the most popularly downloaded plugins with over 4 millions downloads. From what my experience I was very impressed with my discovery as I always do when I find a plugin that works well and reusable for future projects.

Installing this plugin is very easy. Just like any typical wordpress plugin you can either download the plugin and upload it manually or just do a plugin search through your wordpress backend. Under the the “Plugins” option click “Add New”. Then just search for “Photo Gallery” and it will likely be in the first row due to its huge popularity.

I was able to not only install this photo gallery in minutes but I could easily understand how it worked due to it’s user friendly interface. Due to the nature of the project I was working on I needed to have a page filled with albums representing different events. When clicking on the album I needed to display the photos taken at that event. Very simple and very straight forward.

Like most plugins there usually is a catch if you want additional functionality. In the case of this wordpress photo gallery plugin. The cost is $30 if you’re building a personal site and $45 for businesses to get the additional addons which include:

  • social sharing
  • tag cloud
  • photo commenting
  • support
  • theme styling
  • and more!

If you’re looking for a wordpress photo gallery plugin that easily allows you to create photo albums then I would recommend this one. You can find the plugin and download it from the link below:
