    Hi Prabhat,

    Do you have the NextGEN Gallery plugin installed, at all? If not, please grab yourself a copy from the following link...

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery/

    Once that's set up, please see these step-by-step instructions I posted earlier to get your gallery up and running on your posts and pages...

    Once you're set up, you can use Optimizer to enhance and optimize the performance of your galleries...and even automatically display your images in the Fancybox lightbox if you wish.

    Hope this helps!
    Mark.

    Great work Mark! Thanks for your help.

    I have a question, How can I increase the size of the thumbnail images under my gallery page as they look very small. Also How can I add a description below the thumbnail images?

    Please help.

    Regards,
    Prabhat

    Hi Prabhat,

    To increase the size of your thumbnails, simply go to Gallery --> Options --> Thumbnails and change the maximum width and height values to something more appropriate. The default is 100 x 75 pixels. This will automatically apply the new sizes to all new images you upload.

    To change the size of your existing thumbnails, you'll also need to go to Gallery --> Manage Gallery, select all galleries, select "Create new thumbnails" under the "Bulk actions" dropdown menu and enter your new sizes.

    With the captions (descriptions below the thumbnails), all you have to do is add an extra parameter to your shortcode like so...[nggallery id=x template=caption]

    You can read more about it here...

    Hope this helps!
    Mark.
