Horizontal flow

Horizontal flow shows images in horizontal rows, resizing them so all images in a row have equal height without ridiculous cropping. Especially helpful when you use both portrait and landscape images at the same gallery. Ideal for presenting your photographs and really close to the way images are presented by Flickr.

Vertical flow

Vertical flow distributes your images in an equal width columns without cropping them. Works great for portrait photography or other cases when most of images are vertical.

Classic grid

For some cases, classic grid layout is best – like logos, dribbble shots, so on. Awesome Gallery supports it too!

The best Support ever

Outstanding support is not just a buzzword for me. Awesome gallery is packed with a built-in support request feature which allows me to gather all the technical information required to resolve the problem if any. And I am carefully gathering the support statistics to find solutions for repeatable problems.

It is best to use the plugin’s builtin support feature, but if you want – you can leave a comment at the comments tab, or drop me a direct message – I am happy to help all the time.
