Inserting a Photo Gallery

You can also use the WordPress Add an Image window to insert a full photo gallery into your posts. Upload all your images; then instead of clicking the Insert into Post button, click the Save All Changes button at the bottom of the Add an Image window (refer to Figure 3-1), and then click the Gallery link at the top of the Add an Image window (the Gallery link appears only on posts that have images uploaded to it). (See Figure 3-5.) This tab displays thumbnails of all the images you uploaded for your post.
