There are nearly 20,000 plugins on WordPress.org, but it's amazing how much you can get done with the WordPress core and just a plugin or two.
In this tutorial we're going to show you how to create a sleek photo gallery with elegant pop-ups, all using just a default WordPress site plus only one plugin.
Step 1. Add a new post or new page
Step 2. Add a list of images to that page or post
Step 3. Adjust settings and add the gallery
Step 4. Customize the page
Step 5. View the page to see the gallery
So far so good. However, if you click on the individual images, all you see are the images flat on the page. To get a really nice pop-up effect, we'll need to add a plugin.
Step 6. Add the lightbox effect
You now have a photo gallery with a lightbox effect installed. You can make further enhancements with additional plugins. For example you can create Multiple Galleries with this extension http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/multiple-galleries/.
