I am looking for a gallery plugin for a new website I am working on but I'm having trouble finding one with all of the features that I need. I have looked at a few so far, including Coppermine and Piwigo, however most don’t have a tidy, modern, responsive design “out of the box” and there aren’t many responsive themes available for them. I am hoping to find a gallery with the following features:

  • Search (keywords and description)
  • Picture details, including: description, title, photographer and date taken
  • Ability to add comments (either built-in feature or easy to add)
  • Responsive UI (or alternatively a good range of responsive themes to choose from)
  • Batch uploading of images
  • Easy to use interface (to manage and upload images)
  • Ability to add watermarks and/or restrict people from downloading images would be a plus
  • Add an image to multiple categories
  • Well documented with easy theme manipulation/creation
  • User registration would also be good with the ability to add images to favorites etc. however there needs to be a way to restrict the user from uploading their own images

I would really appreciate some recommendations for gallery plugins (free or paid and preferably using PHP/MYSQL) that would meet most, if not all, of the requirements above.
