sorry in advance if I am rated 1 star, because I hope with this to be noticed, and I will edit it to 5 star when finished Hello on the mobile phone, when I open the lighbox and I try to go out with the back button on the mobile phone, my website goes to the previous page, maybe in my opinion it would be better if when I click back it exits in the lighbox, not to the previous page, and added if you click outside the lightbox image it will exit as on the desktop display

I have been looking for a great gallery plugin for quite a while now. I wasn't satisfied with NextGen or Engriva. This plugin is by far the easiest to play along with and it offers all the needed features. Best one out there without a doubt!!

I installed this yesterday so that I could make a slideshow of photos of a recently deceased dearly beloved friend. I had the Gutenberg gallery set up but it really doesn't do what I want. It took just one click to change the layout to one that was beautiful, was a true slideshow where you can move from one image to the next flawlessly. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

I tried so many gallery Lightbox plugins... And this one really stands out! Also, the developer is very responsive and helpful. Thank you for this great plugin!

Many options, good layout, full mobile compatibility, no shortcodes and no additional menus, simple and easy. A few bugs, however: html in image captions is not rendered on published page (only in page editor) both on thumbs and lightbox; no control over image properties - what to show where (title, caption, description)
