Pinterest is not only a fabulously popular social bookmarking app, but they also popularized the masonery style layout…so much so that many people refer to this kind of layout as “pinterest style”.
A masonry layout makes lots of sense when you are sharing images which come in many different dimensions, plus it just looks cool. We’ve used it in a number of our own themes, but we are often asked how to easily create a pinterest style image gallery in a WordPress blog post or page…like this demo which uses the Nextgen Pro plugin.
