Create a photo gallery

Viewing: Home > ProPhoto 6 > Photo galleries > Create a photo gallery

To create a new ProPhoto Gallery go to “Galleries > “Add new” in the main WordPress admin area.  Creating a gallery is very similar to creating a new post or page and you’ll see many of the same options in this page.  Add a title, add images, select a style and publish. gallery_add_new

Add images

Use the “Add Images” button to add images using WordPress’s Media Library functionality.   With the images selected you want to insert, choose “select” to add them to the gallery.  Upload new images or select images already present in your Media Library.gallery_add_imagesAfter images are in your gallery, you can reorder or delete them. Mass reordering by filename, upload order or file created time is possible with the dropdown.gallery_reorder_dropdown Move single images or groups of images all at once. To select a group of images in a row use shift + click. To add individual images to a group use ctrl/cmd + click. Use the toggle switch to see image filenames is needed.

 

Gallery style

The default gallery style here comes from the setting permalink style galleries in “ProPhoto > Customizer > Galleries > Settings.” Here you an override that style for this gallery. But you are never locked into this style.  Each time you insert any gallery you can override with any style you have created in “ProPhoto > Customizer > Galleries > Styles”. 

Publishing

All the standard WordPress publishing options are available allowing you to password protect, save as a draft, keep as private, and schedule for future publishing.gallery_publish_options

Featured image

Like regular posts/pages, you can feature an image for a gallery. Any time your gallery is included in a grid, this is the image that will be used for the grid thumbnail. It also may be the image used in link previews when sharing your link on social media sites.gallery_featured_img
