Creating a Photo Gallery

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but a good caption helps readers to get all the nuances of a picture immediately. The Photo Gallery allows you to insert full-sized pictures and display them as thumbnails. When a visitor clicks one of these thumbnails, the full-sized picture opens. You can display the pictures in the Photo Gallery in the order and size you want and the layout you select. You can also add captions and descriptions for each picture in the gallery.
