    I've been looking for a solution to creating image galleries and came across this site. I'm concerned the code may not be clean.

    Code:

    Any opinions?

    External galleries that you embed are never really "clean" in the world of webdev. Is there a specific reason you're looking at this version? I see that it connects to Facebook/Instagram/Flickr/Picasa which is a neat feature and could reduce work involved in manually adding images to a new gallery, but I think you'd probably be better off going with a jquery lightbox/gallery solution like fancybox, etc. - these tend to look way cleaner, and are also typically much more lightweight in terms of loading code. :)

    To create an image gallery you can try wordpress. It comes along with some great free themes to create image galleries. plus this will be your own personal webspace other than being hosted on some other site. plus great plugins to keep everything in a flow.

    Yes it is good practice to make image gallery in wordpress because if you add the images in database then it will slow your database or it will take time to load the database.
