Meow Gallery is a gallery system for WordPress built for photographers, by photographers. It’s light, clean, responsive, and it is using the native WordPress gallery. You can continue to use WordPress normally without worrying about the gallery system, the Meow Gallery will simply make it nicer.
A demo worths a thousand words, so have a look at this page using the gallery: Haikyo: Nara Dreamland. And here is another page using a smaller gallery at the end of an article: Offbeat Japan: Nichitsu.
The gallery comes with popular layouts: Masonry, Justified (like Flickr), and Instagram (square images). More will come depending on the trends, ideas, and requests.
This gallery uses the WordPress gallery system naturally without hacking it, or without imposing its own system. It means you can use the Meow Gallery without any fear, you will not become independent on it, and switching to it with a clean WordPress should be really easy. The gallery is responsive, light and fast. We will never make it overblown with options and features.
Since this gallery works with WordPress in a natural way, it should be compatible with any other plugins or themes (of course, it depends on how those have been exactly implemented).
We believe that choice of the lightbox depends on you, so this gallery doesn’t come with one. We, however, recommend you to use the Meow Lightbox.
The Pro version of the Meow Gallery adds dynamic Infinite Loading, allowing your visitors to load images in the gallery as they scroll down the page, reducing the overall weight of your page and the loading speed.
