Gallery preview / Show specific images (2 posts)

    Scenario: I have an album with 5 galleries. Each gallery contains between 10 & 25 images. I have a 'Gallery' page on my WP site and using the shortcode [album id=7 template=extend], which contains all 5 galleries. Each individual gallery is also posted to a particular post/page using the shortcode [nggallery id=4].

    Request: Client wants to keep the Gallery page as is, with all galleries, and their images, visible. The request is that they only want a select few, e.g. the best 5, from each gallery to be displayed on each of the posts/pages with individual galleries.

    Can this be done? Would it be best to create custom shortcodes for this or has anyone come across this possibility yet?

    Many thanks

    ADDITINAL NOTES (2012-09-25): Tags seems to be the simplest method up to this point, after finding this article

    I have set my tags as "hero" but this does not appear to be limited to any gallery. I am using the shortcode [nggtags id=1 gallery=hero] where the ID would change per gallery.

    Is there a way I can use this method, perhaps, without using alternate tags to determine which images are displayed?

    Any help on this would be much appreciated. Thanks.
