Two ways to add image galleries to your WordPress site are currently available at

For local storage of your images

You can use the following gallery tools (remember you only have 100MB of storage space on your site):

Built-in image gallery tool

  1. Create a page for your gallery (a post will work too) or Edit an existing one
  2. Click the Add Media button
  3. From the Insert Media window you can choose to Create a Gallery from the left hand menu
  4. Select the images to be in your gallery (upload new images)
  5. Click Insert into page (or post)
