“Tough to pick just 1 main reason for the rating. The features of this plugin are excellent and the developers are super responsive and helpful. Within 6 months they: implemented a feature request I suggested, helped debug multiple functionality issues that cropped up, spent a lot of time making things right. Highly recommend this plugin to anyone who is in need of image gallery functionality. I used this to create an application that allows members to sign up and create and manage their own user galleries.”
