How To Upload And Sort Photos In WordPress

STEP 1. Log into your wordpress dashboard, navigate to the post or page you want to upload your pictures to then press UPLOAD/INSERT. A dialogue box will open for you to select the pictures you want to upload. See below.

PLEASE NOTE: You have the choice of using either the “flash uploader” or the “browser uploader” in wordpress. The methods described in this post work better using the flash uploading option. Also make sure you have the latest version of adobe flashplayer installed on your computer. You can get it FREE from

STEP 2. Choose the pictures you want, by clicking on each one while holding down the shift key or control key. You can also click on the first picture (while holding down the shift key) and the last picture and it will automatically select all the ones in between as well. Then press OPEN.

STEP 3. While your pictures are uploading you can press the SHOW link and add titles and descriptions. Press the SAVE CHANGES button when you have finished changing them all. (See STEP 6. below).

STEP 4. When all the pictures have uploaded, you can sort your images to be placed in a GALLERY or press the SHOW link to add one at a time to your page.

PLEASE NOTE: Placing your images individually on a page means they will appear one after each other. Placing your images into a gallery means they will be displayed in a column of thumbnails across and down the page.

STEP 5. You can sort your pictures in the gallery by choosing ascending or descending, by changing the numbers that appear on the right hand side or by placing your cursor over each image thumbnail on the left and dragging it either up or down. See the images below.

STEP 6. Save the changes.

STEP 7. Choose whether you want your picture to be attached to a page (good if you want people to comment on it) or attached to the actual file (useful if you want other people to be able to download it easily). Choose the number of columns in your gallery … usually 2, 3 or 4 works best.

Press INSERT GALLERY and the appropriate code will be inserted onto your page or post.

Make sure you press PUBLISH or SAVE CHANGES and it will appear in the preview or when you view the post/page itself.
