Photospace Responsive Gallery


Based on the Galleriffic gallery, Photospace takes advantage of the built in gallery features of WordPress.
Then simply use the WordPress admin to create a gallery and insert it in the page. You may need to adjust the size of the gallery to suit your theme in the settings.

Since WordPress 5 you need to embed the gallery using the classic editor.

Make a note of your settings as with the last major update, you will need re-save your settings.

The Photospace gallery plugin allows you to:

  • Upload multiple images at once
  • Easily order images via drag and drop
  • Add a title, caption and description

Via the options panel you can modify:

  • Thumbnail number, size and shape
  • Size of the main image
  • The width of the main images

Some other features include:

  • Keyboard control
  • Pagination
  • Supports multiple galleries (Displayed via multiple posts)

This plugin is often used on older sites, so it is very helpful that you continue to upgrade it.Even 2.1.0, which had a bug, was addressed immediately after I reported it!It is a necessary plugin. I will continue to use it.

Congratulations to the Devs for creating a superbly simply and lightweight fast loading gallery plugin. I have tried so many plugins some free and many paid but Photospace beats the lot hands down. It’s quick, easy to use and great to look at. Sure it could benefit from a couple of extra options but even so, it works brilliantly just as it is. A full five stars from me.

Very good idea! 1/Use native gallery 2/Show image in the same window (not additional “flash”) I found only like this But! 1.different “Number of thumbnails” for different screens! (And it will be full adaptive!) 2. Controls to be placed in a different location not above of thumbnails, but on the same level with thumbnails, by left and right from them? (this is standard now!) 3.Caption like current theme image formatting
