Add multiple images to your gallery
We have our gallery created. To add multiple images to a gallery in WordPress all at once, we need to have all the images grouped in a folder on our computer or to have them already uploaded to our Media Library.
Just click on the Upload image files to add all your images from your computer. You will see that your images will upload one by one. Do not forget to give your gallery a title too.
To upload images from your Media Library, go to Select from Library and select all the images you want to share within your gallery.
Then, click on Add to gallery button. You need to have all the images already uploaded.
More customization to style your gallery
Here you can edit the height and choose the image size. Also, there is the option to edit the space between images on the desktop, tablet, or phone in the Gutter section. You can even enable shuffle images and show Powered by.
If you want to edit your lightbox and links, go to Settings > Lightbox and links.
Go to Settings > Social and enable social icons. You can choose which icon you want to be enabled, the color, icon size, and the gutter.
Next, all you have to do is to click Save Gallery.
