Please do NOT make a purchasing decision solely for using Imgur with JIG

Imgur is the platform for spreading viral images on the internet. Its content is categorized into /r categories that are very similar to subreddits of Reddit. If you are familiar with viral images then you know that there are plenty of different topics available. Why not connect some of those to your site, which presumably has something to to with viral content or a certain type of photos? Justified Image Grid makes it possible to show the latest additions to any category of Imgur, on your WordPress blog. The resulting Imgur gallery will maintain itself over time - change automatically and show the newest uploads.

The r/aww shown as a WordPress Imgur gallery

Whenever you need a batch of cute animal photos, r/aww is the answer. Or add any other category you could think of. They are ready to increase your site's fun factor.

Animated GIFs

This example shows that Justified Image Grid is compatible with animated GIFs and can display them without processing (freezing it). Mind you that this greatly increases your page size as these images are big. These are from r/aww_gifs.

How can my site benefit from an Imgur gallery?

Not all sites need an Imgur gallery. This feature is tailored for those who operate blogs of the "viral" type, where the more interesting, cute and sexy content appears, the better. It's fun to add automatic content by syncing user-managed Imgur categories. They show as a justified, non-cropped gallery. Even Imgur itself crops to rectangles.

What can be shown through an Imgur gallery?

  • Any /r category.
  • Native feed of the Imgur front page.
  • Up to 20 photos are offered by an Imgur feed.
  • Images are served at a normal resolution, thus they are suitable for a lightbox gallery.

How do the settings look like?
