Gallery plugin that's simple because it leans on existing WordPress gallery features provided by http://sethmatics.com/.
NEW TO WORDPRESS? Please read about how the default gallery works at http://codex.wordpress.org/Gallery_Shortcode
We decided that the default gallery that WordPress builds is lacking some very simple features. Enhance your gallery's without having to learn a completely new interface! Upload images as you normally would, insert the "gallery" tag as you normally would, with the plugin enabled BAAM! Your gallery is not in a beautiful showcase. Wait, don't have room on your page for a showcase? No problem, we got you covered! Ad a simple attribute (modal) to the gallery code and define a thumbnail image... now you have a thumbnail that opens an overlay box on the page with your gallery showcase in it. No, it doesn't navigate away from the current page, its very similar to a lightbox effect.
But wait, you want more you say? Oh you mean you use the featured image enhancement from WordPress? Good news, we even offer you the ability to link your featured image to your gallery showcase. It will cause the featured image, when clicked, to open the sexy overlay box for you. Snazzy!
