I tried most of the so-called “best WordPress gallery plugins”, and returned ALL of them. Either because they were buggy or didn’t do what I wanted them to do. I found this gallery because it was being used on another website. I bought it and, not only is this gallery awesome (so is FooBox), the support is second to none. Settings are clear, it’s simple to set up and configure a gallery and it looks good! The abundance of features makes upgrading to PRO a no-brainer. Don’t waste your money on another gallery, save yourself the aggravation, use FooGallery!

Great product, fantastic support
Highly configurable, and the developer has been really great with advice on customisation. I’m really pleased with FooGallery!
I absolutely loved how easy it is to make the gallery look different than every other gallery on every other site.
A wonderful fit for users who need a lightweight plugin that creates beautiful galleries without the need for custom styling or coding.
Been Great for Years, Time to Upgrade
I have used FooGallery on and off for a few years depending on my needs. I actually have had lots less issues, especially around cache stuff, than other popular galleries. I have been thankful for the free version, but my needs changed, so now onto the premium version.
Great plugin; best option to display images in WordPress. It’s responsive too.
What is FooGallery?
FooGallery is a responsive WordPress gallery plugin. Here’s a breakdown of just what that means.
FooGallery is a photo gallery plugin, meaning it allows you to create beautiful galleries on your WordPress site. You can upload photos, media files, and even videos, and use all of these to build your galleries. It’s quick to customize and the PRO version offers you more advanced settings and preset templates, as well as plenty of other features. Upgrading to PRO will give you access to one of the best WordPress gallery plugins around.
Best of all, FooGallery is responsive. It adjusts automatically to fit the device from which it is being seen, whether this is a computer, mobile phone, or tablet. It’s one of the best WordPress gallery plugins on the market, regardless of whether you’re using the free version or one of the premium plans – both give you access to some amazing features!
FooGallery is a WordPress plugin. It’s quick to install and easy to use on your WordPress site. We’ve made sure that it is compatible with the latest version of WordPress and Gutenberg. Because of this, the FooGallery plugin will work when you update your site. Plus you can find the FooGallery block in the Gutenberg editor.
Is FooGallery easy to use?
Yes. FooGallery’s settings are intuitive, simple, and self-explanatory. The default settings give you a great-looking Responsive Image Gallery without having to change a thing. But of course, you can easily create different and unique image galleries by simply adjusting the default settings of the plugin.
Using these settings you can create a unique gallery style that works for your WordPress site. Simply choose the gallery layout you like and work with the effects and advanced features, to create your perfect image gallery.
Another feature that other WordPress gallery plugins often lack is the possibility to import files from other gallery plugins. FooGallery Migrate, a separate free plugin on WordPress, allows you to migrate your galleries from other plugins to FooGallery, saving yo uthe hassle of recreating galleries while keeping the look and feel of your galleries as close to the original as possible. Find out more about migrating your galleries.
The user-friendliness of FooGallery is one of the most important features of our WordPress gallery plugin. Choose from ready-made layouts, or tinker around with the settings to create your very own responsive image gallery — FooGallery has it all!
Will FooGallery work with my theme?
Yes, FooGallery has been around for a long time, and has been tested with most popular themes available for WordPress. We are confident that it will work well with most themes in the WordPress ecosystem. If you find a problem, then please contact us, so that we can work with you to resolve the issue.
Are galleries responsive?
Yes absolutely! That is one of our most important features. FooGallery comes with a bunch of gallery templates (layouts) like masonry, justified or portfolio. All of our layouts are responsive. We also have retina support built in, so your images will look crisp and sharp on devices that can handle high resolutions.
What about SEO?
SEO is very important to you and to us! We know that having crawlable images can boost your SEO, so all our images have alt-text and title attributes. We have also integrated with the most popular SEO plugins (Yoast, RankMath, AIOSEO) to make sure your sitemaps include your gallery images. This means your images can be found by search engines, which means more potential traffic to your site.
Do your galleries impact Page Speed, or Core Web Vitals?
A fast-loading gallery is one of the most important features when looking for a WordPress Gallery Plugin. And do you know what? Many gallery plugins are not concerned about this, or make no mention of it at all. We took a different approach. We rewrote our code to speed up page load times, and also improve visual stability across all of our gallery layouts. Obviously, some layouts perform better than others, but all of them have been optimized to be as good as it gets. We developed our galleries with Core Web Vitals in mind, which led to dramatically better scores for the 3 key factors:
- Largest Contentful Paint – galleries load and appear quicker for your visitors
- First Input Delay – you can interact with the gallery sooner
- Cumulative Layout Shift – gallery images shift around a lot less than before!
Why do you need FooGallery?
If you use WordPress and you have galleries on your site, then you need FooGallery. This plugin focuses on displaying your images to their best advantage. It’s versatile and lets you create a gallery that suits your needs and showcases your images. If you want to build your gallery on a single site, making use of features such as infinite scroll, FooGallery will enable you to do just that.
In addition to this, FooGallery can help improve your SEO. Because it was built with page speed as the top priority, and has built-in lazy loading, your galleries load lightning quick, and all your images are indexed by search engines. FooGallery is also responsive, which helps ensure that your site is mobile-friendly. These days, more than half of internet traffic comes from mobile devices, and search engines are sure to factor this in when ranking your pages. Plus, galleries that aren’t responsive are just plain frustrating for mobile users. Even with the free version, you’ll be able to see improvements in your SEO efforts very quickly.
FooGallery works best with a lightbox plugin, like FooBox Pro, which gives you added features such as social sharing. Using a lightbox allows users to open the images in a responsive lightbox above the gallery. This is useful because your visitors don’t have to navigate away from the gallery page in order to view the full-size images. FooGallery PRO also includes a built-in lightbox!
Does FooGallery include video?
Yes! FooGallery PRO gives you the ability to import videos into your gallery. You can create a video gallery or combine video and images in a single gallery. This advanced feature is a great option for anyone wanting to boost their website traffic with the use of video.
The import tool makes it simple to pull in videos hosted on YouTube, Daily Motion, or Vimeo, to name just a few. You can also import videos from your Facebook feed. This means that you don’t need to host the videos on your site, cutting down on bandwidth and avoiding slow page load speed.
Who is FooGallery designed for?
Everyone! Well, everyone who needs an image gallery on their WordPress website. It’s straightforward enough for complete WordPress beginners to use FooGallery and all of its features.
But really, it’s designed for people like photographers or bloggers. It’s also a great fit for anyone focusing on content marketing. In other words, it’s ideal for those who need to display a lot of images or videos on their pages. Photo galleries can tell a story like no other medium. They also provide some shareable content to populate your social media feed. If you already have a WordPress site and have struggled to implement images in it, FooGallery might just be the answer you were looking for.
Features like albums, filtering, and pagination make FooGallery an ideal choice for anyone with an image-rich site. These advanced features allow users to find the images they’re looking for quickly and easily, as well as let you upload them effortlessly. So if you use a lot of photos and videos, no matter what your profession or interests, then FooGallery is the WordPress image gallery plugin for you.
Creating the perfect, visually attractive gallery can be challenging even for experienced web designers. Using the right WordPress photo gallery plugins can make this entire process much simpler, starting from the upload and ending with picking out the best gallery filters. Choosing FooGallery lets you create exactly what you had envisioned, and much more! You can also use the Gutenberg block to incorporate your gallery into a post.
What do I get with the Free version?
FooGallery Free comes with everything you need to create beautiful galleries. But if you want extra features, FooGallery PRO might be a better option for you. You can have a look at our feature comparison to find the best fit for you.
