How to Create a WordPress Image Gallery.
In this lesson, we will learn How to Create WordPress image gallery. Using the techniques, I have shown you in the last lesson. You can add or a few images that you want to add to post and pages.
Each of those images will appear individually, you can add images to the top or to the bottom, middle or everywhere. Each of those images, well as its own individual units within the context of the post or page.
However, in some cases, you have a series of images and want them to appear galleries format. So, when the user see them and see all the images and small thumbnails and you can click on individual images, make popup and see the full version of the image.
Let’s Start Working WordPress Image Gallery.
WordPress allows you to do this. You want to know how?
Click on Edit Post.
I need the place the cursor where I want to want to show images as an image gallery to appear.
When you select the place then click Add Media Button as I did before but at this time instead of going insert media
I click on create a gallery.
When you go to create the gallery. On the thing, we see changing is you see the Create Gallery at the top instead of Insert media.
Now I have to find a folder of images where I have to upload images. Select images from your image folder just drag and drop them.
After uploading all images then you have to complete the information of each image. I have uploaded a bunch of images.
Once I have added attachment details all the images. I have to make sure that the images I have selected are correct. You see the all the images are selected with the checkbox at the top right-hand corner.

In the first option, you see Link to: it means where the thumbnails in the gallery link to and the default the setting is to attachment page but in most cases link to the media file. So I can use the lightbox plugin.
Columns: how many columns the gallery to have. Default is 3 you can set according to your wish.
