DGallery WordPress Plugin
Although I love the ease of which WordPress allows you to create image galleries in the backend and assign them to posts and pages.
The actual result on the front facing website of the image gallery usually lacks excitement…
I have created the DGallery WordPress Plugin to do just that, it uses the regular galleries generated in WordPress and dresses them nicely with a jQuery script to resize the images to fit the width of the content in which they were created in.
This was inspired by the Google+ photo album which shows in almost the same manner (but about 10 times better) – although in their case most of the images get processed (and cropped) on the server – this plugin delivers the images as is – and uses jQuery to do some moderate resizing to fit.
By specifying the number of images per post (in the regular manner) the script will try to fit the “medium” sized images in to that requirement.
You can see below a demo of 12 images to fit 3 in a row – and I am also using the “Fancybox for WordPress” plugin to show a nice popup of the images:
