NextGen Photo Plugin

I’ve been experimenting with a plugin called NextGen for WordPress.  This is a powerful and well-thought out plugin for doing galleries and a lot more.  You can see the beginning of how I’m using it if you visit the sidebar of the store and look at the New Prints section.

What I was particularly interested in was whether I could create gallery pictures that would easily link to the appropriate posts.  Answer to that is yes.  And of course you get all the new-fangled fancy thinbox, fatbox, lightbox effects…. and there’s a download for a slideshow based on your gallery that I haven’t had a chance to play with yet.

If you’re interested, you can check it out here: WordPress Plugins.

I’ve really only touched the surface of it at this point; so no reviews or anything like that.  But my first impressions are that this will give me some of the functionality I’ve been looking for in the store section.
