If you’ve been anywhere on the internet lately, then you know that the online experience is becoming more and more visual. As a WordPress designer, this means that it’s critical for you to include photos, videos, and other visuals to your site to make it more appealing to your users.
Often this means using multiple plugins for different forms of visual media, doing numerous uploads, and navigating complicated workflows in order to get your images and videos to look their best. If you find this to be too time-consuming and complicated, we’ve discovered a gallery plugin that we think you’re going to love.
MaxGalleria is an image and video gallery plugin for WordPress that is unlike anything we’ve ever seen. This single plugin lets you manage both image and video galleries using the same workflow, making the experience streamlined and simple. In just minutes you can create and publis your gallery to your WordPress site.
Why We Love It
There are a number of features that we think set MaxGalleria apart from any other WordPress gallery plugin. We’ve already mentioned that it allows you to manage images and videos using the same process, but here are a few more things that we love:
- Responsive Design—MaxGalleria galleries are fully responsive on any type of device, so that your users view your galleries the way they were intended to be viewed, no matter what device they’re viewing them from.
- WordPress Media Library Integration—MaxGalleria is fully integrated with the WordPress Media Library, which means you don’t have to re-upload images or videos that are already part of your WordPress site. And, because you’re using a well-known interface, it’s easy to learn.
- Streamlined Workflow and User Experience—creating and managing image and video galleries really doesn’t get any easier than MaxGalleria. The user interface is simple and straightforward, and is very similar to what you’re already doing on WordPress.
