WordPress Themes Blog Oh! Blog


For anyone who uses WordPress as their blogging platform, there arises a need for an effective and working Gallery plugin at some point of time. If you are a photo blogger, the need for Gallery plugins is even higher. Although, after the release of WordPress versions 2.5+, a gallery feature has been integrated into WordPress, where once you upload some images on a post or a page, WordPress allows you to insert that group as an image gallery into your post or page.

In spite of this fact, sometimes using a plugin is much more efficient because not all WordPress themes contain CSS styling for the gallery feature and also, some plugins make your galleries visually better and much more accessible. So, in order to save the trouble of browsing through different gallery plugins on the Internet, I have compiled a list of the 10 best WordPress Gallery plugins. I have also inserted a poll under this post, where you can rate the listed plugins and help other users to make a better choice.

NextGen Gallery Plugin


The famous NextGen Gallery is a full integrated Image Gallery plugin for WordPress with a Flash slideshow option. Features include custom templates, AJAX thumbnail generator, sortable Albums, Zip file uploads, Watermark function, Lightbox Effects, Sidebar Widget, Flash Goodies and much more.

Cleaner WordPress Gallery Plugin


Cleaner Gallery gives you complete control over your WordPress galleries. It provides a valid XHTML solution and supports many different Lightbox type image scripts. The plugin creates valid XHTML code and only uses the images that you want to resize. You can also control the display of your images through CSS styling.

Lightbox Gallery Plugin


This plugin changes the view of galleries to the Lightbox view and also displays the associated metadata with the images. The caption for each image is viewed through a tooltip when you hover your mouse on a thumbnail.

FlippingBook Gallery Plugin


FlippingBook WordPress Gallery is an excellent way of working with images in blogs. You download photos, and the plugin creates a small photo gallery out of them. If you need to post several pictures, you don’t have to make large posts. Being joint together, pictures can be put in a beautiful Flash album-book and don’t take up much space. It’s very convenient to look through the pictures, leafing through the pages. You just have to double-click to print images out. This is a real interactive book which is nice and easy to use when you turn its pages.

PhotoXhibit Plugin


This versatile plugin uses photos from your Flickr, Picasa, and/or SmugMug accounts as well as allows you to upload and build Albums to help you build inviting Photo Galleries on and through out your site. Features include independent gallery creator, ability to customize each gallery’s appearance with a styles editor, easily create and upload Albums with a single thumbnail or two different size thumbnails and much more.

AWSOM PixGallery Plugin


Upload your images into a folder on your server, put a code in a post or page (which Pixgallery can generate for you), and immediately have an automatically created gallery with thumbnails, watermarks, pagination and more in a matter of few seconds. This is an easy solution to adding an Image, webcomic, or photo gallery to your WordPress install.

Falbum Gallery Plugin


This is a WordPress plugin that allows you to display your Flickr photos and photo sets on your website. It can be easily configured through the WordPress administration area and uses Flickr API to display images, EXIF data, tags, and also notes.

Check it out here :- Falbum Gallery Plugin

Lazyest Gallery Plugin


This is an excellent Gallery solution with features like automatic thumbnail and slide creation, comments on images and folders, JQuery Slideshow, Galleries and Sub-galleries, Widgets, EXIF data display, Adding captions and much more.

WP Photo Album Plugin


This plugin is designed to easily manage and display your photo albums within your WordPress site. Plugin features include managing and creating albums, moving photos to and from albums, uploading and deleting photos, adjustment of thumbnail and full view picture sizes (set default max sizes for each).

Check it out here :- WP Photo Album Plugin

Inline Gallery Plugin


This plugin offers a way of including arbitrary amounts of images in your blog posts. The plugin does no processing on the images (except for getting the image metadata), so it’s lightning fast. You can have multiple galleries per post and the plugin is integrated with the WordPress’ WYSIWYG editor. The Admin page uses AJAX for gallery browsing and caption editing.

I hope that this post has helped you in choosing a Gallery plugin for your WordPress blog. Why not vote for the best WordPress Gallery plugin and help others decide too!

    Shameless self plug. I’ve written a plugin called WordPress Gallery. I think it’s pretty cool!

    WordPress gallery provides a simple interface for uploading images, editing them and having them displayed on the front end of your site via a shortcode or a function call.
    The front end gallery can be configured in the following ways-
    Height and width of your gallery.
    Transition effect.
    Transition time.
    Optional lightbox effect to original image.
    Uploading images is done through a simple interface that allows you to upload multiple images at once (only limited by your server’s execution time and maximum file size). You can then edit the image to adjust crop, scale and rotation. Any changes you make to an image can be easily reverted back to the original image at any time.
    If you have an Amazon S3 account your images will be uploaded there saving bandwidth and storage costs.

    You can check it out here.


    Would be great to get some feedback!

    Just fyi,

    There are two that have not been mentioned: “gallery and caption” and “jquery native”. These both update the existing wp gallery rather than supplant it. Transitions are sexy. gallery and caption adds the ability to theme wp caption images and do things similar to inline gallery (multiple galleries per post).

    @urban art:-
    Not automatically, but you can achieve what you want using custom fields in NextGEN Gallery. I managed to create “page galleries” using this technique.


    Hope this helps.

    Wow, this is a super list and great to see the poll results, too. Thanks so much for compiling this and posting it for the rest of us.

    Some good ones here that I’ve never seen before. I’m trying to find one that pulls in images from posts automatically, and the image links to the post when clicked. Shouldn’t be hard to find but it is… Thanks for this list!

    Hey! There is another and one of the best on my mind flash gallery. You should include it in this list. Named GRAND Flash Album Gallery – multi category flash skin based photo gallery with powerful admin. Thanks!

  102. Peter left a comment on December 16, 2009 at 9:46 pm |

    WP Photo Album has not worked with the last three releases of WordPress and it looks like the developer has stopped supporting the plugin.


  103. Mark left a comment on October 25, 2009 at 2:11 pm |

    Thanks for the useful list! I personally really like NextGen Gallery Plugin and Featured Content which is not on this list.

  104. Penny Gamer left a comment on October 1, 2009 at 10:00 am |

    I’m sorry, but these are all pretty terrible. NOT that I can create anything better, but the gallery support for WP is pretty bad. It’s frustrating, really.

    I wish someone would create a plugin that would let you…

    – select images
    – set backgrounds
    – auto generate thumbnails
    – apply javascript transitions

    Am I missing one? Anyone?

    Just to present the WordPress Chatbot plugin, with “robot style” voice. I’m got plenty of plugins and I’m looking for advise to monetize the stuff…

    I’m surprised you haven’t found the superslider-show plugin which uses slideshow2/mootools java script.
    http://wp-superslider.com/superslider-show you might want to add it to your list.

  109. Adeje left a comment on May 29, 2009 at 4:48 am |

    I have been using “featured content gallery” on my travel website. I like the end effect and that there is no requirement to resize etc.
    I will check out the NextGen plugin now.

  110. The Frosty @WPCult left a comment on May 27, 2009 at 12:07 am |

    From what I can tell, Next GEN is the only real Gallery plugin. The others just add script or modify the WordPress built in gallery uploader or output.

  111. Mike left a comment on May 17, 2009 at 11:32 pm |

    Nice entry. I also suggest Sidebar Photoblog a simpler (but powerful enough) plugin for begginers.

      Being mainly a Joomla user, the gallery componenet I use most is Joomgallery. It’s very flexible and has a lot of features, but can be very hard to understand the admin of it. As for chagning the look of it, you need coding knowledge really.
      I’m considering moving to wordpress, as I hear that it’s more user friendly for the ‘non- technical’ amongst us.
      Can anyone recommend this, or am I barking up the wrong tree ?

  113. Quân left a comment on April 18, 2009 at 10:38 am |

    NextGen Gallery is the best plugin for me!!!
    If I have to choose only one, that would be it

  115. Chen left a comment on April 13, 2009 at 7:32 am |

    Nextgen is no doubt the best.. the lightbox gallery is surprisingly looking good…

    I was wondering if anyone can tell me where can I get a plug-in for the voting functionality that is used on this site. Thank you very much

    Next Gen is the best WordPress plugin on the Internet. I highly recommend it to anyone using digital images on their blog.

  119. Neil left a comment on April 6, 2009 at 9:12 am |

    @Max:- You can use the lightbox effect with Nextgen Gallery 🙂

  120. Max left a comment on April 6, 2009 at 4:21 am |

    I am currently using NextGen, will there be any conflict with older post if i change to lightbox gallery? Anyone tried before?

  121. hyipinvestor left a comment on April 4, 2009 at 7:14 am |

    THE PATTERN that it is necessary! Thank you! Long ago searched for!

  122. Tommie Hansen left a comment on April 4, 2009 at 12:07 am |

    There is yet to be a really effective image gallery where you store the images on your own server.

    Nextgen Gallery is still too much of a hassle when inserting large amount of images in different galleries, it’s a pity that it’s the only viable choice currently.

  123. Fakhra left a comment on April 1, 2009 at 7:33 am |

    WordPress gallery in this blog is very useful and beautiful.

  124. Jenny left a comment on March 31, 2009 at 8:54 am |

    I still dont know which one to use. They all seem great tho.

  125. Flick left a comment on March 29, 2009 at 4:56 pm |

    Just wondering if any of the plugins featured support multiple categories? I remember testing out NextGEN and did like it, but alas there was no support for multiple categories at the time. Not sure if there is now?

  126. DeViLnoAnGeL InFo left a comment on March 29, 2009 at 6:47 am |

    i like lightbox gallery plugin, looks very awesome, gonna try it now with my blog. Thanks jai for letting us know some of galery plugin.

  127. S.K left a comment on March 28, 2009 at 11:37 pm |

    I use Kpicasa gallery which is very good for pulling images stored in Picasaweb. You can use either Lightbox or Highslide javascript tool for rendering expanded images.

    “Shashin” is also very good for Picasaweb images and it has many options.


  128. Portland Web Design left a comment on March 28, 2009 at 10:43 pm |

    The Nexgen gallery is really cool, especially with the smooth gallery mod. It makes for a great way to showcase something.

  129. Jazz left a comment on March 28, 2009 at 3:38 pm |

    How about Plogger? Does that compare to the software listed here? You can get a 3rd party wordpress plugin, too.

  130. Kjetil left a comment on March 28, 2009 at 4:51 am |

    Just to get this overview is a great help!
    I’ve been trying out NextGen gallery for some time, but have some minor problems. No doubt it’s an incredible plugin, but now I can try out some others.
    We’ll see where this ends :o)

  131. marcel left a comment on March 28, 2009 at 4:31 am |

    @PIF:- Hi PIF,
    Lazyest Gallery can read existig uploaded images.

  132. PIF left a comment on March 27, 2009 at 1:58 pm |

    Which one of them is able to read in existing uploaded images?

    This is the biggest problem I have with WP – existing uploaded images cannot be found by other image plugins.

    • Jennifer left a comment on September 18, 2010 at 11:25 am |

      I see the gallery images on your site. When I click on them you get that nice window with the next and prev links on either side. I have NextGen installed but I don’t seem to get that, when you click on the image it closes. How did you get that???
