WordPress Tutorial: How to Add a Photo Gallery

Hi and welcome to WordPress.com. This video will show you how to add
a photo gallery in a page or a post. To get started, log in to your site
and click on My Sites. For this example, we’ll create a new blog post
where we’ll publish our gallery. Click on Add next to Blog Posts,
and title your new post. Click on the plus icon on the very left
of the editor toolbar. Select the photos you want to add
to your gallery from your media library. If you want to add new ones, upload them
from your desktop by clicking on Add New. You can also upload from a source online
by clicking on Add via URL and pasting in an image link. Now that you’ve chosen your images,
you can create your gallery. Click on Continue to choose
from one of the layouts. Different layouts have additional settings,
like number of columns. Set whether your photos will open
to an attachment page, the media file, or neither, when clicked on. Add captions to your images
by typing text in the caption field. Set the order of your photos by
dragging and dropping them, or click on random. Remove photos from your gallery
by clicking on the X in the corner. If you want to add a photo to your gallery,
click on Media Library to return to your selection and choose or upload additional photos. Click on the Preview tab to see
what your gallery looks like. When you’re happy with your gallery,
click Insert and publish or update. Take a look at your new gallery. Clicking on an image in the gallery
will open it full page, and you can scroll
through the gallery as well. There are seven different layouts
for galleries that you can use. Test them out to see
which ones you like best. And that’s it. For more tips and tricks,
