Rather than adding your media one by one to your Page or Post within WordPress, you may sometimes want to insert multiple images at once as an image gallery.
In this guide we will show you how to quickly create a gallery using the built in WordPress gallery function, however there are also various image gallery WordPress plugins you can install to provide you with additional options and customisation.
Creating a new image gallery:
Firstly you will need to log in your WordPress admin area / dashboard - This will normally be at a URL such as mydomain.com/wp-admin (replacing mydomain.com with your own domain name)
Once logged in, either create a new Page / Post, or alternatively open up the editor for an existing one that you would like to add the gallery to.
On the editor screen, click on the 'Add Media' button
This will then open up the Add Media screen.
On the left hand side click on 'Create Gallery'
For this guide we have already uploaded the images that we would like to use, so click on the 'Media Library' tab at the top to show all media currently uploaded to your WordPress site. If you need to upload the images still, then use the 'Upload Files' tab to do this.
You will then need to find, and select the images you want to add to the gallery. If you click on each image this will add it to the selection.
It will also show you your current selection at the bottom of the screen.
Once ready to proceed click on the 'Create a new gallery' button
WordPress will then take you to the 'Edit Gallery' screen to confirm the images you've selected for your gallery.
Here you can add a caption underneath each image if needed.
On the right hand side of the page you will also find the gallery settings:
Link to: This determines what will happen when you click on a gallery image
Colums: This is how many columns you would like the gallery to be split in to
Random order: Displays the images in a random order
Size: Determines the size of the images being displayed in the gallery
Don't worry if you miss any of those options, or change your mind at a later time - you can still come back to adjust this at any time.
Once ready to proceed click on the 'Insert Gallery' button
WordPress will then insert the gallery in to your Page or Post.
If you ever need to edit the gallery at a later date - either to insert or remove images, or adjust the gallery settings, simply click on the Gallery within the editor, then click on the edit (pencil icon) button.
