SXSW Image Gallery

As I mentioned, I want to give the new WordPress Image Gallery a try. I gathered up some photos from the 2011 SXSW Interactive Conference to use as an experiment.

The results? Easy to set up, easy to edit, easy to add titles and alt text. I don’t like that the thumbnails open in a separate window and that the Back button has to be used to return to the gallery. Putting only two thumbnails in each row would make the images large enough that users wouldn’t be so prone to click for a larger view, but still, that’s a drawback.
