Add Images to a Gallery

WordPress ( NextGen Gallery) - These Tutorials require that your WordPress installation has the "NextGEN Gallery" plugin

Step #1

Log in to your WordPress dashboard http://yourdomainame.com/wp-admin

Step #2

Once logged in, select “Gallery > Add Gallery / Images” from the left-hand side bar

Step #3

On this page, if it’s not already selected, choose the tab “Upload Images”

Step #4

Press the “Browse” button to select the images you want to upload from your computer.

Step #5

Select the drop down menu ( should say “choose gallery” ) and choose the Name of the Gallery you wish to Add Images to

Step #6

Press the button “Upload Images” and the uploading process should begin. After uploading all of the images, NextGen will automatically create thumbnails for those images according to the size you have specified or the default. Once complete there will be a message at the top of the page that says “X number of images were uploaded”. Please be patient. It may take some time depending on the size of your images.

There is an eventual limit to the size of the images that prevents the use of super, High-Resolution Images but this limit can be lifted by making changes within the code itself. If you need your limit raised or have any problems, please contact us!
