    I am using many Studiopress themes. Looking for a good gallery utility.

    Have been using gallery2.org for a long time but not happy with it anymore. I want to install it as http://www.karnataka.com/gallery/

    I have come across many galleries but not sure what to use.

    I don’t like the lightbox popup as I want to display the description of the photo, the page view counts, want to show advertisements.

    I have used http://www.nextgen-gallery.com/ on another site, but don’t like the lightbox feature.

    Looking at the following,

    http://www.paddsolutions.com/top-pinterest-inspired-wordpress-themes-2012/

    http://upthemes.com/themes/gallery/ – seems to be good but this is another theme, not a plugin.  Not sure if I can install it as /gallery with Metro theme. Having 2 admin logins for main site and gallery is a pain.

    Looking forward for your expert advise.

    regards

    Mahesh

    The default gallery with Jetpack gives you both a Carousel and popular posts

    But I find Jetpack to be very heavy. It adds to much weight to the page. Or am I thinking wrong?

    Its a big plugin but that doesn’t mean it uses lots of resources which depends on your server setup.

    My homepage loads in under 1 second and i use it.

    There’s other features included that are useful

    You can add it on its own if you like.
