  1. The Pro Horizontal Filmstrip is still an iframe though, is there any hope of that changing in the future?

    thanks.

    1. We plan on removing the iframes in a future update. All in good time 🙂

  2. Does the new pro have any functionality that allows site visitors to upload images to a gallery? If so, can the images be approved before showing?

    1. Hi Christy,

      NextGEN Gallery can allow any users to upload images (in the backend) if you choose to allow it. There are third party plugins that allow for public uploading on the front end.
