Galleries and galleries with Photospace

a presentation on the basic wordpress gallery controls

The insertion of a gallery is a straight forward way to display an organized set of images in a page or post. Images are displayed in terms of gallery rules, and not where/how the image is inserted in the page. Follow the link above to get a more complete sense of what a default gallery configuration can do…

Here are the basic steps:

In the editor select “add media”

01-photospace

Rather than selecting add image, select create gallery … select your images from the media manager or upload them
a note of caution: images in the gallery should have the same measurements & aspect ratio

02-photospace

Once your images are selected, click the “create a new gallery” button

03-photospace

Gallery settings are relevant without Photospace, if Photospace is active they will be over-ridden

04-photospace

In the “text” tab the gallery will look something like this:

05-photospace

In the “visual” tab it will look like this
note: photospace controls & layout will not be seen in this view … what you will see is a layout as defined by the “default” wordpress gallery settings

To adjust the sequence of the images, click on the gallery itself and then on the pencil (edit) icon
IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT THIS EDIT FUNCTION ONLY EXISTS IN THE VISUAL TAB
Via this view you can:

  • Change order via drag & drop
  • Change universal link settings

    Finer controls (such as caption entry) are found by clicking on an individual image:

    08-photospace

    Photospace has its’ own controls for how the gallery is configured.
    IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT ALL GALLERIES WILL COMPLY WITH THESE SETTINGS
