Looking for a Gallery addon or plugin for WordPress

I’m currently looking for a photo gallery program for wordpress. I’m going to list them and test then as I go, remembering of course to backup everything before I install everything. First one on the list is:

  1. Plogger
  2. Gallery 1.5.2
  3. Gallery 2.0 (newer version of the above)
  4. QDig
  5. Simple PHP gallery
  6. Lazyest Gallery

Going to have a look at Lazyest Gallery first since it looks to be the easiest to install.

Lazyest Installation Instructions:

1. Unpack archive to your the wordpress plugin dir ( /wp-content/plugins/ ).
2. Move the lazy-index.php file (now in the plugins dir) to your wordpress folder.
3. Create a folder for the gallery (if you haven’t got one already).
4. Activate plugin the WordPress backend.
5. Go in the new Option/Lazy-Gallery page of the Admin panel and adjust the configuration
6. If you want icons to be displayed for any folders, just put inside the folder an image (jpg, gif or png) with same name of the folder.
7. If you want categories to be displayed in your sidebar ad this line to your “sidebar.php”:
[code lang=”php”]< ?php lg_list_folders("Lazyest Gallery"); ?>[/code]
You can use whatever title you want.
8. If you want a random image to be displayed in your sidebar ad this line to your “sidebar.php”:[code lang=”php”]
< ?php lg_random_image("Random Image") ?>

[/code]
You can use whatever title you want.
