How do I create a gallery with all image files in my library on a new page?

    I want to have a page showing all my photos from all my posts (as a way of showcasing my portfolio). Is there a way to create a gallery with all image files in my media library on a separate page? I tried doing it with the gallery shortcode “gallery id” and inserting multiple post IDs but that didn’t work. How do I do this? Do I have to do this the long way using individual photo IDs? Many thanks!! Sorry I have been searching for a long time and can’t find the answer!!

    If the images have already appeared on your site in Posts, then you should be able to use the post ID number to bring those images into a Gallery/Portfolio. You do have to insert each Gallery on its own line with its own shortcode, like:

    [gallery id="17"]
    [gallery id="239"]

    …etc. You can’t put all the IDs on one line separated by commas, like you can with includes, which it appears you were trying to do.

    That was SUPER helpful. Thanks a million. I guess I will just keep adding gallery lines as I add pictures to my collection :)
