A hidden gem in NextGEN Gallery is the Link to Page page. It's not really hidden, but it's definitely overlooked often by users.
The default function of a selected gallery within an album is that the gallery displays on the same page where the album was.
Using the Link to Page feature, users can redirect the selected gallery to a specific page.
There are many advantages of linking a gallery to page. For example, the ability to include whatever text and in whatever page layout that you want, separate from the Album page. Or the ability to use a breadcrumbs plugin and have the galleries clearly separated from albums.
So next time you are creating an Album, give the Link to Page feature a try.
