… More WordPress Photo Galleries

For a long time now I’ve gotten quite a bit of traffic from search engines for my super old, and probably no longer working WordPress photo gallery plugin. I appreciate all the attention, but I really believe that with how awesome WordPress is these days, there are much better alternatives.

And without much ado, I would like to present to you a bunch of great WordPress photo gallery themes. Some cost money (usually the best ones), and some don’t. I’m not going to put the prices on here because I expect they’ll probably change over time. But, I highly recommend taking a close look at each of these photo gallery themes for WordPress. These are some of the best:

  • Built in full-screen HD video player
  • Optional homepage slideshow
  • Optional homepage Mac-style image slider gallery
  • Optional homepage Magazine-style post layout
  • Optional homepage blog-style layout
  • A theme options page where you can define background, text, link colors, contact info, site tracking code and more
  • A homepage settings page where you can choose which apps show up on your homepage layout
  • SEO-optimised titles and alt tags
  • Four widgetized areas
  • Click-down navigation for a compact, minimalist masthead

This is a great theme by WooThemes, who does some amazing stuff. I’ve actually purchased themes from WooThemes and been very impressed with the quality, so I expect if you’re a photographer looking for some kind of WordPress gallery, you should find a good set of options there.

    Just in time. You saved me the 2 hours it was going to take me to: casually research WP photo galleries for a new photographer client, give up after google didn’t produce favored results on the first page, and go lay on the couch and play Castlevania.
    Thanks again.

    Awesome! I’m glad it was helpful. I’ll write up another post on some other killer WP photo galleries I found too. I just wanted to keep that one short to see if it was useful.

    Thanks for the feedback. Keep it coming.

  3. Aperture has to be one of my favorite photo galleries out there – the WooThemes guys really add value to the ecosystem IMO. Mark Forrester is so gosh-darn talented.
