How to Add A Gallery


This video tutorial is shown for customers only. Upgrade to access it.

WordPress’s new media uploader tool has made it even easier to add images and galleries to your posts and pages.

To add an image:

  1. Go to your Page or Post’s edit page in your WordPress dashboard.
  2. Place your cursor in the post content where you want the image to appear.
  3. Click on the Add Media button to launch the Media Uploader tool.
  4. You can choose to upload an image from your computer or from a URL on the web, or you can insert an image that already exists in your Media Library.
  5. If you are uploading an image, click the Select Files button and navigate to your image on your computer. Click the Open button.
  6. Once your image has been uploaded, you will have the option to add a title, caption, alternative text and description.
  7. You can also choose the alignment of the image, where the image will link to and the size of the image you want to display. If your image is smaller than one of the possible sizes, you will not be able to select that size.
  8. Once you have added your settings, click the Insert into Post button.

Insert an image or photo

    Whenever I upload images to my WP Media Library, even if I create a Gallery, it seems that WP just dumps them all in together in the Library. Is there a way to create Galleries within the WP library to help keep things organized? Even though sometimes I see a tab called Gallery when I upload, it goes away afterwards. Clarification on this would really be helpful. BTW, thanks for all your tutorials. They are very helpful.
