I created a post with a few dozen pictures, and now want to create another post with most of the same pictures in a Gallery. Obviously, I could upload the photos again while writing that post, but there would be duplicates on my server taking up space. Since the pics are in the Media Library already, how can I get them from the Media Library to the Gallery for that new post?
If I click on the add media button, then click on Gallery, the Gallery is empty. The only way I know to get jpegs into the Gallery is to upload them afresh. Any way to get them into the gallery if they are already uploaded?
Why do I want to do this? Well, let's say I shot 60 pictures of fall leaves. On one post, I have a gallery of all of them. On another post, I want just a gallery of the 15 of the reddest trees. Or, another example. Same 60 pics for one post, but then I decided that it may be too many, so I put that post aside and start a new one. I don't want to upload the pics again, they are already there.
Lastly, if I delete a .jpg from the Gallery, is it deleted from the Media Library, or just the Gallery for that post.
Thanks for any help you can muster.
