WordPress as Image Gallery

Sure. There are quite a few different image gallery systems out there these days that will allow you to do just about anything you want with photos on your site. But what if you only want to be able to easily upload some images and display them in a nice way? Do you really need all the bells and whistles of a full blown gallery system?

I don’t think so.

I just finished doing a quick gallery for Todd to display photos of cars that he has applied graphics too. Mostly used by his local MINI dealer, he needed a way to be able to do exactly what I stated above. Quickly upload images to a page and have them display nicely to anyone (yes, it works on your phone, check it!). And yes, I did it all with WordPress.

For those of you that don’t know, WordPress does a very good job with images right out of the box. And, with proper tweaking of the CSS and WordPress settings, it does even better. Add a plugin for some cool effects like lightbox, and voila! You have a quick and easy image gallery that is easy to use for both the person adding images to the site and for the user that wants to look at the site.

I love WordPress. What can I make it do for you today?.
