Which gallery plugin is the better alternative for my blog? With more and more competing premium WordPress plugins it gets harder and harder to answer that question. This article takes a look at two popular gallery plugins: It compares NextGen Gallery with SharePrints in order to help you with your decision in choosing one.
There are several other alternatives to NextGen Gallery and SharePrints on the market which I have compared in separate articles. Go to my main WordPress Gallery Plugins comparison to start your search.
Please note that this comparison only looks at the features on paper as reported by either plugin’s developers. It does not and can not tell you if or how well a certain feature will work for you. Because such a verdict would depend on too many variables, including your server setup and personal preference, I have decided to stick to the hard facts for this feature comparison between NextGen Gallery and SharePrints.

In my comparison I track 19 different features for all the WordPress gallery plugins. In NextGen Gallery you can find 13 out of 19 of those features. SharePrints on the other hand offers 12 out of the 19 features in total.

Even if many of the features compared above overlap between the two competing products there is one very important difference: NextGen Gallery as well as SharePrints both provide a unique interface from which you will create beautiful photo galleries in your WordPress blogs. Since it is hard to rate the quality of such an interface objectively I recommend that you try both products yourself before deciding for one.
NextGen Gallery vs SharePrints Price Comparison
WPscoop indexes the exact prixing plans of all compared plugins. Please refer to the table below for a quick overview of the prices of NextGen Gallery and SharePrints.
To find the cheaper gallery plugin for your individual needs please go to my main comparison article. There you can search for the features you need and then see the exact price you would need to pay for NextGen Gallery or SharePrints (as well as other alternatives).
|Minimum (1 Site)||0.00 USD||39.00 USD|
|Maximum (1 Site)||39.00 USD||39.00 USD|
|Minimum (10 Sites)||0.00 USD||129.00 USD|
|Maximum (10 Sites)||39.00 USD||129.00 USD|
Explanations: The minimum price compared above is the lowest price a product is available for, e.g. the version with the least features. The maximum price listed is for a version of the product that includes all features. For plugins that charge per addon it factors in the cost of all available addons. For some products the price increases if you want to use it on more than 1 WordPress site – the listed price for 10 sites shows if that is the case.
