How to create a gallery post

You will produce one gallery post per day. A gallery post is a collection of 6 to 12 pictures from your neighborhood, blending old and new images in a theme imagined by you. A gallery is a useful way to add multiple images to a post, as shown below:

 

Your gallery should have a theme or some commonality. There are an infinite number of themes but here are some ideas.

  • Near the metro
  • Quiet
  • Convenient
  • Swimming pools
  • houses
  • townhouses
  • condos

Tip for finding content

If you need a starting point for images in your Gallery post go to your Dashboard.  Hover over Media and then click Library.  Try to find images that are not already attached to a post.  Use several of these to give you a starting point / angle for your gallery.

The Media Library is one of the main links in the navigation bar at the left of your work area.

This is an example of a “text image”

Generally, the images in gallery posts should not contain “text images”. Galleries should NEVER contain more than one text image. Text images can be appropriate as a featured image on a gallery post.
