CREATE THUMBNAIL GALLERY IN BLOG POSTS

I have received an email asking an easy way to create thumbnail gallery or album within the post. There are many widgets available in internet to create thumbnail gallery images in a blog.  Unfortunately, these widgets are not able to customize individual images. For creating customized images in thumbnail gallery, it is always advised to use some manual process, which I will explain here below.

How to add thumbnail Gallery in your blog post

For adding a thumbnail gallery, I suggest that you must blog by using Windows Live Writer. Download Windows Live Writer, add your blog and then type your blog post. Now you can click on Insert.Here there are two ways to do, one in which you can add photos as an album. the next is quite interesting. Click on Insert “Table”. The number and width of columns and rows must be the same as that you wish to keep for those thumbnail pictures.

After creating a table, then click on each cell and click on Insert- Picture. You can upload pictures from your computer into each cell and resize them as per your need.

You can  edit the image properties such as resize, rotate, adjust picture contrast, add frame, add drop shadow, link each picture to any URL, add watermark, add special effects like sepia, emboss, sharpen or blur, add ALT text to the picture code, adjust picture temperature. In Windows7, more features available, that could make the thumbnail gallery more attractive.

Enjoy..
