Foo Gallery is a really easy to use, intuitive plugin that creates responsive, interactive image galleries on your WordPress sites. The galleries are sleek and mobile-friendly to integrate well with any modern site, and are neutral enough not to clash with most designs (but on the off-chance they do, there’s a handy Custom CSS box located on the gallery’s dashboard). The plugin comes loaded with many different gallery templates to ensure that your galleries don’t appear generic (or like they came from a basic plugin), and the galleries are also incredibly customizable and allow for a lot of flexibility in presentation. When they’re ready, the galleries can easily be inserted into any page or post using a shortcode.
One of the coolest features of the Foo Gallery plugin is that it comes loaded with built-in support for Foo Box Image Lightbox, which can be used to create a lightbox effect with your gallery images. To enable this feature, simply download and activate both plugins on your WordPress site. As you create your first gallery, be sure to select ‘FooBox Free’ under the ‘Lightbox’ field, and make sure that in the Thumbnail Settings section, you select ‘Full Size Image’ in the ‘Link’ field. With these settings in place, when you view your gallery and click on the thumbnail images, the full image with a lightbox effect should be revealed and leave you with a very professional looking gallery set up.
