Creating an image gallery

The steps for creating an image gallery are listed below. You can also view the video for an example of how to set up a gallery inconjunction with the plugin Lightbox 2 for some snazzy effects.

  • Create or edit the desired post or page
  • Upload any images (via Upload/Insert > Add an Image) you would like to see in the gallery (you can upload more than one image at once by holding down the CRTL key as you select them
  • Close the upload box.
  • Reopen the Add an Image option box.
  • Select the Gallery tab and scroll down to the options.
  • Choose your options and select Insert Gallery. I suggest linking the gallery thumbnails to the image file instead of attachment page.
