This plugin makes does a great job of adding nice slide show options as a Gutenberg block. Many creative controls to fine tune my shows so they look custome-made for my brand & site. Thanks!

This is probably the easiest to use and most effective lightbox gallery plugin with all options available in your hands. Excellent display on both desktop and mobile, something really hard to find free these days. Unfortunately, it is limited only to gutenberg editor and as a result i cannot use it on my website. I would easily pay a premium in order to have this given that it also provides gallery creation separately from posts or pages (sp that i can reuse created galleries in various places on my website.) Hope this will be the case sooner than later. For the moment an alternative to this is GT3 gallery, very good but this one is even better.

sorry in advance if I am rated 1 star, because I hope with this to be noticed, and I will edit it to 5 star when finished Hello on the mobile phone, when I open the lighbox and I try to go out with the back button on the mobile phone, my website goes to the previous page, maybe in my opinion it would be better if when I click back it exits in the lighbox, not to the previous page, and added if you click outside the lightbox image it will exit as on the desktop display

I have been looking for a great gallery plugin for quite a while now. I wasn't satisfied with NextGen or Engriva. This plugin is by far the easiest to play along with and it offers all the needed features. Best one out there without a doubt!!

I installed this yesterday so that I could make a slideshow of photos of a recently deceased dearly beloved friend. I had the Gutenberg gallery set up but it really doesn't do what I want. It took just one click to change the layout to one that was beautiful, was a true slideshow where you can move from one image to the next flawlessly. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
