This responsive WordPress gallery plugin aligns your thumbnails into a justified grid using jQuery.
It can replace the standard WP galleries as [justified_image_grid] with lots of new features and options. WordPress will manage the galleries and this plugin will display them.
Or alternatively you can load images from Facebook, Flickr, Instagram or use NextGEN gallery as an image manager/source.
Or just make a responsive banner of Recent posts using their featured images! Also works with custom post types. Filter the thumbnails by tags or any taxonomy!
Control every aspect: row height, appearance, special effects like desaturation, color overlay with magnifier icon, borders, multiple captions, free and premium lightboxes, mouse activated animation…
It’s easy to install and comes with 18 presets out of the box. The setup is a breeze with two admin areas: the plugin settings and the Shortcode Editor (you can edit your previously generated shortcodes!).
About 200 settings are spread over a tabbed interface in two admin areas for quick access.
The settings are available to change on a per gallery basis, extending the global settings and presets. No coding skills are required. There is no need to remember shortcode attributes/values because of the Shortcode Editor that has examples and contextual help.
Your download includes an extensive 50 pages PDF documentation with full settings reference, troubleshooting guide and clickable bookmarks – table of contents. There are also some narrated HD videos available.
An excellent, fast-response support is provided with guaranteed reply. It covers installation, technical and compatibility issues.

Continuous updates have been released and are to be expected as new feature suggestions and customization requests spotlight areas to improve. Also when 3rd party script authors release new versions. Bugs are to be eliminated when found.
Support is taken seriously, all efforts will be made to make an incompatibility go away. Also I listen to customer opinions and feature suggestions.
Note: The images and WordPress theme seen in the preview are not included in the download. Also this is not Pinterest style. The plugin is not compatible with purely AJAX-based sites and animated gifs as thumbnails. You can make feature requests in the comments section.
