A gallery is a deliberately curated set of photos, that may itself be a post, or an archive view, or potentially dynamically created via tags.


Gallery layouts are usually organized in some sort of grid fashion.

Platform Examples

Projects and other software platforms that have a notion / feature support of "gallery".


WordPress software offers two image related post formats.

  • image - A single image. The first tag in the post could be considered the image. Alternatively, if the post consists only of a URL, that will be the image URL and the title of the post (post_title) will be the title attribute for the image.
  • gallery - A gallery of images. Post will likely contain a gallery shortcode and will have image attachments.

Silo Examples


Flickr confusingly has several different kinds of galleries each with their own quirky limitations:

  • Set (also called Album in the UI) - a curation of your own photos
  • Gallery - a curation of other people's photos
    • They have a "special" Galllery called Favorites now (with 2014 UI update), whereas Favorites used to be a completely separate thing.
  • Photo Book - ??? something new
