Thanks a lot for this great plugin. It is fast, good adjustment options, lightbox is awesome, great support.

It does what it says, great plugin. Only one issue: it loads in lightbox even the logo on our site, therefore we cannot press on logo to redirect to the homepage of our website. Hope that will be fixed in future updates. One feature is missing: the option to display images in lightbox even for custom posts. That option would be great if added.

Provides 3 clean and professionally-looking gallery blocks with a lot of optional features and a responsive lightbox for those blocks and the native gallery block. Native Gallery lightbox can be enabled/disabled and configured for each page individually. The blocks and configuration options are integrated neatly into the Gutenberg interface. The settings page contains global presets, looks nice and is unobtrusively placed into the Settings submenu.

This plugin makes does a great job of adding nice slide show options as a Gutenberg block. Many creative controls to fine tune my shows so they look custome-made for my brand & site. Thanks!

This is probably the easiest to use and most effective lightbox gallery plugin with all options available in your hands. Excellent display on both desktop and mobile, something really hard to find free these days. Unfortunately, it is limited only to gutenberg editor and as a result i cannot use it on my website. I would easily pay a premium in order to have this given that it also provides gallery creation separately from posts or pages (sp that i can reuse created galleries in various places on my website.) Hope this will be the case sooner than later. For the moment an alternative to this is GT3 gallery, very good but this one is even better.
