Adding NextGen gallery images to WordPress blog posts

Inserting NextGen gallery images into blog posts from Scott Wood on Vimeo.

In the past I had been using SmugMug to host my online galleries and I would then insert those images into blog posts, I hate the thought of maintaining different versions of the same image, but now that I have switched to a self hosted solution using the NextGen galleries, I needed to update the way I insert images into posts.

I put this short tutorial together on how I do it as it is a little different than the “intended” way, but as the old saying goes, “there is more than one way to skin a cat” and this works very well for me. ¬†Of course I have never understood why anyone would want to skin a cat.

    Glad you had made this tutorial Scott – I’m switching to Nextgen from Smugmug and this is exactly how I want to handle images in my blog post as well! Thanks bud!

      Please let me know if there is anything I can help with when you migrate, I made the exact same move.

      Since my tutorial the latest update to WordPress moved the image edit button, it is still there, and does the exact same thing, it just isn’t in the same place it is in my video.
