The Best Free WordPress Gallery Plugins

WordPress gallery plugins are a great way for photographers to extend their WordPress sites to better show off their work. When a potential customer lands on a photography studio’s website, they want to see samples of the kind of photographs they can expect, and these plugins will definitely help present a photographer’s work in its best light.

There are also a number of premium gallery plugins available on Code Canyon to further enhance how your portfolio displays on the web. Free gallery plugins will generally be able to replicate the features of premium plugins, but may lack a certain amount of visual polish or customization levels.
