You can create and manage photo albums on your WordPress website just like posts but on a new custom post type. In this lesson you will learn about creating and managing photo albums without installing any photo-blogging theme or customizing CSS and other code files, the album displays nice right away.

Easy Photo Album is a WordPress plugin that automatically activates a new post type, ‘Photo Albums’ where you can create new albums, insert multiple photos on each album, display them in a cutomizable column wise structure, use lightbox overlay to open photos etc.

All albums are responsive and works with all well-coded WordPress themes. It also allows you to select the number of columns with images you want.


The Lightbox displays image’s most large size possible, resized to viewer’s screen size. Editors can manage photo order with easy drag-and-drop, add text content to tell story of each photograph and more.

Another good thing about this plugin is that it not only provides you a new custom post type but if you want you can show-up albums on other post types (such as posts, pages etc) using WordPress visual editor.
