Setting up a Wordpress gallery..

But what I want is to show one image on my page. Then when you click on this it will open the gallery. (I don't want to display these other images in my page).

In theory, I'd like to show about 4 or 5 gallery thumbnails and then when you click on each one it shows you the gallery in a light box or something. Has anyone come across anything like this, a plugin maybe?

You can use the gallery built in function in the WYSIWYG editor when you add a photo to the editor on the left side of the popup panel is a link that says "Create Gallery" you choose the images you want to display and Wordpress takes care of everything

Hi Fernando - I don't want to show all images in the gallery, I just want to show one image like a thumbnail. When the user clicks on it then it will display the whole gallery one by one.
