  1. Daniel

    I just bought (a first for me) Thumbnail Gallery. So far it has been awesome! I am still yet to use all its features. Much better than scratching around for hours for a free plug-in. Thanks guys. Top job!

  2. Peter

    Thanks for a very impressive list of galleries here. Still, it can be difficult to find exactly what I’m looking for. It should preferably be minimalistic in design and work somewhat like the Thumbnail Gallery. Only, I can’t live with captions and buttons which are placed on top of the artwork. That is a no go. I guess I’ll have to browse through a lot more possibilites before I find what I’m looking for…

  3. Motti

    Nice list. Unfortunately, most are for the trendy Instagramer and not for the pro photographers.

    Most decent themes have their own built in galleries, some are excellent (try Border in Themeforest WordPress themes). There are also a few free ones that can easily be part of the pro photographer blog, one of them is FooGallery, completely free and an excellent simple tool.


    • Julius Nepos

      Yes, I think I can agree with your comments. The article looks like it was written by someone writing a review who never had to actually deal with the mechanics of sorting images for an image driven WP site. Lots of layouts of 5-6 pix each of vastly different trendy things for which you can just arrange thumbnails.

  4. Alex

    Maybe its just me , but a lot of these plugins I can’t find on WordPress

  5. Ayesha (Deluxe Themes)

    Thanks a ton for including Grid FX in this list :-)

  6. Ciprian

    Thank you for mentioning ImagePress, we are continuously working on improving it and adding new features. Next on the list are dynamic metas and notifications.

  7. John Murphy

    Having tried a large amount of different gallery plugins, I decided to stop on Gallery by Supsystic! This amazing plugin contains all necessary options – different types of galleries, categories, pagination option, several layouts for post feed galleries, various animated effects for caption and icons and much more. Easy to use and responsive on all devices!
    Absolutely loved it and highly recommend.

  8. Jessica

    Thanks for the interesting review. I have tried some different gallery plugins, and stopped on Gmedia Gallery so far. It’s powerful yet user-friendly. You can show image galleries, photo slideshows, play music and videos. 14 modules will help you customize media content the way you like. Responsive on all devices. And it’s FREE. http://wordpress.org/plugins/grand-media/

  9. Marsha

    I am looking forward to exploring more of this list, but for the moment I am on a mission. I need to find a replacement before & after photo/gallery plugin to replace one which is breaking a theme. At the beginning of this post you wrote “I really like the before and after image plugin included in the last post.” Since the post is undated and the previous one unnamed, which plugin was this? Thanks

  10. samdani

    It is a matter of sorrow that suggesting link above are n’t related with these plugins . It has been mistaken here ….

    Hi, how are you? I need some kind of plugin that allow me to create a grid of images hosted in a image hosting (such as imagetwist). I couldn’t find one plugin that allow me to do that, do you know one?

  13. Alex

    Hi Rijo,
    Nice collection, must have taken a lot of time to collect so many portfolio plugins.
    Just to add my 2 cents, would be great if you could have a look at my new portfolio plugin and add it to the list if possible:
    Thank you!

  15. Tiv

    This is a nice list, big fan of Plugin & Huge-IT gallery. Still, I believe you’re missing Envira Gallery which is according to me the best!

  16. charly

    I like Final Tiles Grid Gallery.

  17. Mark Henry
