The Review

Going through NextGen for this review was super awesome to see the possibilities that await photographers from the dashboard of their WordPress site. NextGen brings a powerful functionality to your site that gets your images into the website in a variety of displays – you have the option to upload by zip file, individually through WordPress-style uploader or FTP. My biggest plus for the NextGen gallery as opposed to an external gallery site is that everything is managed right in your dashboard AND you don’t have to send your clients outside your site.  Also allows for quick watermarking – super awesome! Some functionalities functionalities I LOVE with my current gallery that NextGen doesnt have is the use of a mobile app to send to clients and print lab fulfillment. Even without the mobile app function – since not everyone utilizes it in business – this plugin brings a great platform for photographers to have aesthetically pleasing and easy functionalities within their WordPress site to further their photography business.    Word has it that print lab fulfillment for NextGen is coming though- which is awesome! And perhaps one of the most intriguing aspects, for me as a lawyer AND wanting to be efficient –  NextGEN Pro Ecommerce allows you to offer automated digital downloads of your images at any size your specify – you can embed your license terms (Commercial Use or Print Release) for your clients, whether commercial or private portrait!
