This is exactly what I've been looking for... A script/plugin that has perfectly fused Social sharing, deep linking of images (for SEO) & a lightweight/clean lightbox that works great on Mobile & desktop. But I purchased it because it does WAYYYY More that the 3 simple things I was looking for. One of the biggest surprises I had was the social sharing feature. It works perfectly! I had a client share a single image from a gallery to their Facebook. The format was clean & simple. But the results were amazing. When a Facebook user clicks to view the image, it takes them to my website where the gallery is & opens the lightbox to display the exact image that was shared. My website traffic spiked over the next 24 hours as my clients Facebook friends clicked to view the image. They spent an average of 2 minutes on my site & visited an average of 7 other pages before returning to Facebook. I'd term this method of social sharing a huge WIN! This is by far the most versatile & easy to use plugin. They also make great recommendations of other free & premium plugins to enhance the usability of WP Media Library. Bravo! You've done a fantastic job on this plugin. I'm sure this will become my go to script for galleries & portfolios to display images, videos, & custom posts.

My background: I've used dozens & dozens of gallery & lightbox scripts & plugins. I'm a programmer, so I've coded scripts into plugins & themes to get the functionality I wanted. But I've always been left looking for new scripts, because the next project needs something a little different.

I am a wedding photographer that is interested in having full control of how my users view my website. It was very important for me to have a quick loading gallery that also opened the images quickly in full screen to showcase the quality of the work. I think hands down the JIG thumbnails + Photoswipe is the best way to showcase photography on WordPress. The fact that it easily integrates with real media gallery is the icing on top making WordPress feel like an actual full photography website. I have been running some tests and Google definitely likes the way that JIG is serving up my image thumbnails with alt tags and descriptions. It even links to the high resolution version, so it's a win for search engines and my users! I have been recommending it as “the best WordPress gallery” to all of the Facebook groups I am part of!
