And as for the URL you can add the URL address of whatever you want.

  • Gallery width: This parameter is useful because people use gadgets and different devices for the Internet (for 100%, leave blank).This is the fully responsive Picture Gallery.

Why to have a Image Gallery in your website?

It is not a secret that images are one of the best and most effective ways to attract people. They are catchy, colorful, bright. Even a text on an image appears to be more attention-grabbing than just a text on a website. Images speak to our emotions, imagination and our unconscious part as well. Image presence in a website make it more social as it takes a few seconds for the human brain to process an image, which is considerably faster than processing content or text.
Whether you specialize in photography, creative design, journalism or you are a travel blogger, your photos tell a unique story and deserve to be presented in the best possible way. And our friendly and feature rich Photo Gallery plugin will help you with that! Here, you can create your own single and multiple free galleries from your photo library. We offer a responsive Lightbox Gallery plugin. So you will give thorough information about your portfolio.
Adding an image gallery page to your website helps with:

  • Attracting potential customers – As already mentioned images and photos grab attention, add engagement and give a boost in pageviews.
  • Generating more sales – Photo Galleries give more information about your work and affect the final purchase decision.

I tried half a dozen gallery plugins that just didn't make the grade. This one was better from the start, but the staff even improved it during the period that I demo'd it. Lots of gallery layout controls. I upgraded to the Pro version to unlock the expanded image viewing options for my visitors. Bravo!

I've installed this plugin 1 week ago, it has all the features I need and a nice design. The support is very kind and quick in replies, they have always helped me.
04 Dekabr 2019
I did an extensive research on all sorts of photo-gallery plugins for over 2 months and I would say this is the best for the following reasons-- 1) Speed - Our gallery has around 200 images, each one around 1.5mb and it loads pretty much fast. The thumbnail quality can be adjusted too. It also has lazy loading. 2) Support - The best support I've come across. It got a personal touch and they would strive hard to meet the needs and solve issues. 3) Zoom - This is the only plugin which has a proper zoom and an actual size option in the light-box. 4) Random Option - The galley is always fresh as the images could be displayed random each time the page loads. 5) Cheaper - This one is much cheaper and has the same or better standards than Foo Gallery, Envira Gallery and NextGen Gallery. Seems like the plugin is still in the development stage and so has a few bugs, but the developers would make sure that the issue is solved and it works the way we wanted once we get in touch with them. We are an architectural visualization firm and showcasing images in high quality is utmost necessary for us. We are using this plugin for 5 of our galleries and we are using 4 of their galley styles.

While it did work, the photos were stretched and choppy. Bad programming. Also, if you want to do cool stuff, you need to pay. Not mentioned before uploading.
