    If you are using Next Gen gallery, you can create your galleries by naming them and adding images.
    Once you’ve created them, you can then create your pages, and just add the corresponding gallery to that page.

    So if you wanted 3 galleries, you would create the three galleries and then make your 3 pages. Once you’ve created your galleries, Next gen gives you a shortcode to add to your page. That will embed the gallery on that page.

    You can use any theme to use next gen gallery.

    Good luck.

    Hi
    I try to add a gallery in a page, also as portfolio item
    in both ways the thumb are excessively big and fit the page, so they are at low resolution and are unwatchable.
    There is a way to show them in a small size, listed on a gallery ?
    Unfortunately “Customize thumb” does not work in my account. Dont know why. Pop up a windows with notghing inside when click on “customize thumb
    thanks in avance
