Thumbnail Cropping, Editing, and Resizing

NextGEN offers fine thumbnail management functionality. You can bulk resize every image in every gallery at once, or go in and finely customize a single image thumbnail to highlight the best part of your image.


 
• • •

Image Tags and Tag Cloud Displays

Add tags to images and use those to display tag-based galleries (ie, a thumbnail gallery with all images tagged “Bali”), or display tag clouds that dynamically pull imaages with associated tags.


 
• • •

Upload Zip Files and Import Folders

NextGEN offers lots of upload channels. You can upload images normally, upload zip files, or upload images via FTP and then just import the folder. The folder import can also be used to import images from the WordPress media library.


 
• • •

Import and Edit Meta Data

NextGEN imports basic meta data and allows you to edit the basic title / description data. There are specific templates that display exif data.


 
• • •

Watermarking

You can bulk watermark your images directly from NextGEN Gallery using text or image watermarks. Assuming you’ve left image backup enabled, you can also recover (un-watermark) images if you desire. Finally, you can apply watermarks dynamically for specific galleries (while leaving the underlying image untouched).


 
• • •

Image Backups, Storage, and Recovery

NextGEN anticipates various image management needs. By default, all images are backed up, which means if you resize them or watermark them, you can recover the original with one click. You can also disable backups to save storage space, and you can customize the exactly location on your server where galleries are stored.


 
• • •

Role and Permission Management for Multiple Users

NextGEN offers fine controls for determining what permissions various users (authors, editors, etc) in your WordPress site have. You can, for example, allow authors to upload and manage their own galleries, while preventing them from touching other users’ galleries or adjusting any global settings.
