NextGEN Pro review

If you have been a WordPress user for some time, there’s a good chance you would have heard of NextGEN Gallery, one of the more widely used plugins for building stunning responsive image galleries. To really make use of all that NextGEN Gallery has to offer you, Imagely, the team behind it, has come out with another WordPress gallery plugin that packs in every single extension available for NextGEN Gallery. Known as NextGEN Pro, this plugin saves you the cost of buying separate extensions, and adds a lot of power to your WordPress image galleries.

To begin with, you get a selection of 10 display styles to choose from for your gallery, including mosaic, slideshow, masonry, grid and list. Each style has its own benefits and you have the freedom to choose any depending on your taste, content and overall site design. The same extension also includes the option to add hover captions to your images. Another important feature is that of image protection, which prevents right-clicking on your images.

Then, you get the Pro Lightbox extension, which offers a highly customizable design for the gallery fullscreen lightbox. The extension includes a number of really useful features. You get the option to let viewers comment on your images. Easy sharing on social media becomes possible now, as does image deep linking. To further enhance the social sharing aspect of your images, this extension makes it possible to easily use Twitter Cards and Facebook Open Graph tags.

The e-commerce extension makes earning an income from your original images a cinch. Image proofing is easy with it, while the integration with PayPal and Stripe makes it easy for buyers to directly purchase and pay for them from your gallery.

Finally, there’s a collection of over 15 beautiful Imagely themes that can help you further enhance the appearance of your galleries.
