WEBFI-WordPress-How to Create an Image Gallery in WordPress

Do you have a large number of pictures you are looking to add to your site but it is not displaying how you want? Most people want to have their images grouped in columns and rows with the ability to upload multiple images at once. In this video we will show you how to create an image gallery in WordPress to make your photos look even better.

For the first method we will use the built in WordPress gallery system. Start by editing the post or page that you want to create your image gallery on. Click the ‘Add Media’ button to upload the images you want to add, click the select files button to begin the upload process for your images.

You can either click and drag the images or using the control or shift keys to select multiple images at once. With the images uploaded and automatically selected with your upload, you will want to click the create gallery link on the left hand side. This will allow you to customize your image gallery to a small extent and once it is ready you can insert it on to the page.

The second method we will use is a plugin called Envira Gallery, if you do not know how to install a plugin you would want to take a look at our guide:

To use this plugin you will go under Envira Gallery, Add New, and select the files from the source of your choice. This plugin gives you more control over how your image galleries are dislayed to your users.

    WOW! You’ve just added a very polished looking tool to my toolbox!!!

    One question. I’d like to add some description text to the post. Using your example, for instance, “Here is a fireworks show I went to 4 July 2017. I was sitting by the lake across the way.”

    Can that be done?

  • Michael Corlett on February 26, 2018

    Is there a way in either of these two gallery methods to make the individual images "clickable" to a WordPress page which would describe the particular image? Great video, thank you.

  • Wood Hughes on February 26, 2018

    Thanks! I’ve managed to figure it out. One other point I learned is that too many photos in a gallery makes the post crash. I started with a series of 40 pictures of a nature trail I had handy. Now I’ve broken it down into 4 individual galleries, all in the same post, but separated with text headers. So far, it’s working fine! I’ve only been working on this gardening blog for under a month, but It sure is interesting!

    I have activated the plugin Envira gallery and inserted all of my images and its showing in my a page ( which I named Gallery) very well. Since I got the shortcode so everything is working fine. But Now I want to add more images in the same gallery..What to do now?

  • Christineena on April 8, 2018

    Love your videos!
    One major problem I'm having with WP is my images, looking professional on my blog.
    I take all images with my DSLR camera and when I edit or don't edit and upload onto my WP blog (Ragsandboas) It always looks very, VERY, low quality. Very pixaly and blurry but I have no idea why because on my camera, desktop, editing system the photo looks very crisp, clear, and professional.
    I'm guessing this is a WP problem.
    I have searched EVERYWHERE to find the solution to my problem.
    But nothing seems to be working.
    I've installed plugins that don't work or help.
    Can someone please help me?
    I have a lifestyle blog that depends on pictures and without them, my blog looks boring and not to its full potential.
    Should I change my theme or is it a code problem…

  • Ann Redgewell on April 28, 2018

    Can I use this gallery for Amazon affiliate products so the images are clickable links straight to the product on Amazon?

  • Ashkan Ahmadi on June 27, 2018

    Hi. How can I have a dedicated Gallery page where different albums show up? This is what I'm looking for but I cant find a plug in that does this. I don't want the albums to appear on the blog as posts but on one page called Gallery with multiple albums inside it. Thank you 🙂

    Hi! First: Thank you for your video! It was very usefull! 🙂 I have a problem displaying the lightbox. Even though my Envira Galllery was well published and attached to my page, and it appears in the envira design dispay, when I click on an image, A webpage appears showing me my photo in a new page. And it doesn´t even show the name and description that I put to the image. I disabled the box that to open your image in a diferent page, but nothing seems to change.
    Do you know what could have happended? Could you help me?
    Thanks for your dedication. Cheers 🙂

  • b33zo on February 19, 2019

    Thank you for taking the time to create this very helpful tutorial. Unfortunately Envira seems to be another gallery without the option to display the image file number which is essential if the images are for sale.

    I'm trying to load 9 images, but it will only load seven of them. Even altogether they don't even come close to the restriction of mb size, so I don't know what the problem is.
