    Go easy … I’m new to WordPress.
    I’ve got an image in my media library that I want to use in a gallery.
    I want to keep the image in the media library because its being used by a post – but want a copy of it in the gallery of another post.
    I only know how to load images into a gallery from my computer.
    How can I move an image from the media library to the gallery linked to a post?

    Thanks much.

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

    If the other images are already uploaded to the post where you want the Gallery to appear, the easiest and fastest way is to just upload that one image again to the same post.

    Otherwise, in the new post you would have to use the Gallery shortcode with “includes” and by using the Image ID number for all the images you want to appear in the Gallery. http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/gallery/#gallery-shortcode
