Can I use one photo file for gallery AND slideshow?

  1. please help..i dont really understand how to deal with this...currently all my pictures are attached to my slideshow page.
    It is the home page
    http://channelofabstraction.wordpress.com/
    I want to have a gallery underneath the slideshow so people can go to each individual photo if they choose (it doesnt seem like you can do that with the slideshow, which doesnt show file titles or anything)

    It seems like i have to REupload all the files just to do a gallery?? what do i need to do? so frustrating :(

    The blog I need help with is channelofabstraction.wordpress.com.

  2. A gallery will display a set of thumbnail images attached to a particular post or page. If you upload images using the Add an Image button while editing/creating the post or page, they will be attached automatically. If you upload images directly to the media library from Media -> Add New, you will need to attach them to a post or page before they will appear in a gallery. http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/gallery/

  3. If all you want to do is repeat the same images from the slideshow in a Gallery, just add the Gallery shortcode below the slideshow in your post. It will look like:

    [slideshow]
    [gallery]

    No need to upload the images again.
