Step 2

Click on the “Add Media” button located above the content area

On your computer, navigate to the folder containing images that you want to use for the gallery. Select the images you want by holding down Ctrl and left clicking on the desired images.

Step 4

Drag and drop the images into the WordPress media box.

The images will now be uploaded. This could take a couple of minutes depending on how many images, and how large they are.

Step 5

After the images are uploaded, click on each one and in the bottom right, change the size to “Thumbnail” You must do this for every selected image.

The currently highlighted image will have a blue border.

All images you have just uploaded will be already selected – you can identify the images by the tick on the top right corner of each one.

Step 6

Click on “Insert into page” located in the bottom right.
