    How do I remove am image form wp gallery?

    The only option seems to be delete it from media manager BUT I want to use the image elsewhere and when I add it back it gets added to the gallery again!

    You'll have to remove it, but upload it again from Media/Add New in your admin panel and you'll be able to use it again later without it being attached to that gallery.

    That doesn't work - even renaming the image file doesn't help, it keeps getting added back to the gallery.

    How do I delete the gallery and start again?

    Is the only option to delete the page?

    Also how do I create a gallery chosing existing media - it only seems to create a gallery when you upload new media.

    That shouldn't happen. Images are only added to the gallery if they are attached to the gallery's post or page via the uploader in the post interface.

    Delete the gallery from the post and then delete the images that were attached to the post.

    If you want to use the native galleries, the images must be uploaded and attached to the specific post or page, but there are plenty of other gallery plugins that don't have this limitation.
