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.

Upload images

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.
