    Hi:
    I am making a biography page for each of our club members. I want to have a portrait photo of the member, a short written biography and then a photo gallery of a few of their photos. The portrait photo wants to put itself into the gallery at the bottom of the page. Is is possible to have photo separate from a gallery, all on the same page? If so, how do I do it?
    Thanks for any help.
    Yours,
    Lea

    The blog I need help with is portfrankscameraclub.com.

    You can not avoid this. Clicking your one image will show all of your images as a carousel view.

    You can exclude images from a gallery:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/gallery/#gallery-shortcode

    You need to get the attachment ID and write something like this:
    [ gallery exclude=id #1, id#2 ]

    * Note: To get an attachment ID for an image, go to your Media Library and hover over the image title you want to exclude. You can find the ID in the URL (the number after attachment_id=).

    I can not make up my mind. Once I had very detailed debate with the volunteers and they told me that. Nevertheless can I separate all the images from the gallery in this way?

    Well, why would you want to use the gallery shortcode if you want to exclude all of the images? You could do that, but then why not just post each picture individually.

    If you mean does excluding one or two pictures from a gallery work, then yes. It works so for example, the original poster can exclude the portrait from the gallery of pictures and not have the portrait show a second time.

    Yes, I want to exclude the portrait photo from the gallery, but still use the portrait photo on its own on the same page as the gallery.

    Yes, I understood that. Note that I forgot to include the quotation marks in my example above. Should be like so:

    [gallery exclude="ID#of the portrait"]

    You can exclude the portrait from your gallery, and you can have the portrait on the same page: just insert it as usual.
