Creating A Photo Gallery

How to create a photo gallery and add photos with NextGen Gallery.

Add A New Gallery

  1. Go to Gallery > Add Gallery/Images > Add New Gallery. Here you will name the gallery you will be uploading your images too. If you are adding images to a previously created gallery, skip this step.


Upload Images To A Page or Post

Open your page or post or create a new one. Click the NextGEN icon in the toolbar.


You have two options of uploading images:

Upload Individual Images

  • First, choose the gallery to upload images to
  • Select your image files from your computer or drag a batch of images (you can include .zip files) and drop them in box provided
  • Click ‘Start Upload’


Import image folder

  • Select a folder to import. *The folder name will be used as the title of the gallery.
  • You may select to keep images in original location, if you keep this option unselected, images will be copied over to your NextGEN ‘gallery’ folder under /wp-content/gallery
  • Click ‘Import folder’. This will import the images in that folder on your server, to a new folder that will appear under Gallery > Manage Galleries
