Step 2: Adding Images / Media
Now, the fun part. See the Add Media area. It’s on the same level as POST, but on the right side. If you hover your mouse on the LITTLE SQUARE near the Add Media label, you will get the little Add an Image icon as shown below.
Step 3. Uploading Photos
Click on the little SQUARE icon and a window will pop up. Your screen will look like this.
Click on files to upload (highlighted in red).
From experience, if you want to use the built in gallery, a MAXIMUM of 20 PHOTOS is optimal. After 20 photos, the gallery functionality does not work properly. I suggest using the NEXGEN gallery for more than 20 photos. (I’ll do the tutorial for that next).
Oh, although the server can actually take a maximum of 10 MB per file, I don’t suggest using big files. Make it lower than one MB for each photo. I believe that the 10 MB is if we are only using one photo. For multiples, smaller size is better.
As your images are being uploaded, you will see the word CRUNCHING. One everything is done, your window will look like this.
