nextgen-gallery-newsToday's release is another milestone in our ongoing efforts to reduce and remove as many bugs as we can which impacts a wide range of users.

In addition, we are releasing a feature that was one of the most popular feature requests of all time for NextGEN Gallery.

Now all users can import their images from the Media Library!

Please note that this will act as if you were importing the image from your computer. Meaning, it will make a copy of the image from the Media Library and then resize and create backups as you have set within Other Options.

Backup Before Upgrading

Please consider backing up your site (both server files & MySQL Database) whenever updating plugins.  Here are some backup recommendations.


Download NextGEN Gallery from or visit the Plugin page in your WordPress admin area to utilize the auto-update feature.
