The Gallery macro displays a collection of thumbnail images in a table, based on the images attached to a Confluence page. When viewing the page, a user can click a thumbnail image to zoom into a screen-sized image and then view the images as a slide show.
The images shown in the gallery are taken from the files attached to the Confluence page. You can also specify a different page where the attachments are located. For information about attaching images to a page, see Upload files.
The captions below the images are drawn from the comments on the attachments. For information about adding comments to attachments, see Upload files.
By default, the gallery will include all the images attached to the page. You can also exclude or include images using parameters.
You can sort your images into a particular order.
You can specify a title for the gallery and also configure how many columns you want for the table in which your images are displayed.
