This week’s WordPress article is an introduction to 5 great free photo gallery WordPress plugins.
Why a Photo Gallery WordPress Plugin?
You might be asking yourself why I need a photo gallery plugin when the latest versions of WordPress has a great gallery feature?
The simple answer is you do not need one, if you do not post a lot of images or you are happy with the features the default gallery comes with.
The hard answer is, you need one if you post a lot of images and are not happy with the default settings, features, and layout. For me, this is a big issue on my personal blog and photoblog. There are times, when a photo gallery makes sense, but only if it looks good and easy to setup and use.
With the updated gallery options, WordPress makes it easier to use but its lacking in the options and layout department. That’s where the photo gallery plugins come in.
