FooGallery is a WordPress Media Gallery Plugin that allows you to easily create beautiful photo and video* galleries.
Although WordPress does let you insert individual images into your posts and pages, as well as create collections of images in a gallery format, by choosing FooGallery, you get a lot more control over how your photos and other images are displayed.
