To create a gallery, open the post you want to work with in your visual editor.

If you need to edit your gallery, click on it and select the edit icon.

WordPress tip

Did you know that images are a secret weapon for lead conversion and driving traffic to your site? When your WordPress blog or website has appealing images, more visitors are bound to drop by. More clicks and more traffic can help boost your rankings and profits, as casual visitors might then notice something else on your site that keeps them there or drives a sale. Use the Post Content Editor in WordPress to see thumbnails of images that you have already uploaded and create a new gallery to add instant wow factor to your site.
