Visual Builder and Albums

You can use this to create the most stunning gallery and load it up with beautiful images and videos from your Instagram albums. Your visitors will be awestruck with the gallery that will be created with it. It’s so responsive that your files are bound to look good in any gadget that it is viewed upon.
Once the gallery is created you may want to categorize your media files into folders naming them differently to mark their nature. inGallery makes that possible too. You can create an unlimited number of albums and introduce them to your visitors and followers in a special way.
Display Style and Customization
inGallery offers you a range of possibilities to make your galleries appear fascinating to your viewers. It offers you with 2 layouts and 5 built-in preview styles for your images. You can choose the number of rows and columns in which you want your images to be displayed.
To look through the gallery you have the option of infinite scrolling. So now your visitors do not have to click on the Load More button or Net Image button and wait for the next image to appear. They can just scroll through the gallery and the image will be automatically pulled into the view.
The unlimited color scheme option makes it possible for you to complement the color of your site’s gallery to match up with the site style. You can also add smooth animated transition to enhance the user experience.
There are 5 premade styles already included in the plugin
Media Sources and Privacy
When you add an image or a video to your gallery, you have the option of choosing what the source of your file is going to be. The options are many. You can unleash your gallery by displaying your content by a hashtag, a URL, Instagram user and so on. This does not mean that you have to limit the source of your images to one source only. You can have an unlimited number of such sources.
The best thing about inGallery is that it gives you all the options to limit your audience from the posts you do not really want to share. So you can use the 2 types of filter (filter of except sources and a filter of show only sources) to control the settings of the visibility of your images.
If you think that you want to share only your videos with your audience and keep your photos private, you can do that too. The reverse is also possible. You can also limit your album items and display only the best Instagram media items to impress your website visitors.
With all these options inGallery ensures that your posts and images are secured by allowing you to decide which posts you would want to share and which to keep private.
Image Support type
The images you share will be displayed to your audience in the form of thumbnails. So all your images in these thumbnails will be shown in a square shape. However, when a viewer will click on the image for a preview it will open in the original ration that it is uploaded with.
inGallery supports popup light boxes. These are customizable popup boxes in which you can choose what you want to display. It can be either a video, an image or all the data related to the image or the particular video.
The best thing about this plugin is that it is powered by Ajax. Your viewers will not have to leave your site by getting restless due to its slow loading speed. They will not have to wait for an entire page to get loaded to view more images. Ajax will keep loading more images without loading the entire page.
Responsive and Compatibility
inGallery is a thoroughly responsive plugin that stands out in all sorts of gadget screen. Whether it is a mobile device, an iPad, a tablet or a desktop it looks absolutely stunning. It is also compatible with all modern day browsers. Not just this. If you want to use the plugin in a site that has to be localized in any other language other than the globally accepted one, you can do that too. It supports WPML very easily.
inGallery has been designed to support many other significant plugins too. One of them is the WooCommerce plugin. It works beautifully on any site that uses the WooCommerce plugin to sell off its products and services.
This plugin guarantees great support in any technical issue that you might be facing. You can also get in touch with them in case you need to fix bugs or anything that includes third party issues. They are available 24*7 to answer your queries related to the features of the item.

So you can get all that the plugin has to offer at such an affordable price. I don’t think that’s too much. Don’t you think?

This is obviously because of the impact images can have on a visitor’s mind.
