This is an example of an image gallery. It uses the standard WordPress gallery, but you can use others styles or plugins, including Jetpack and NextGen. Clicking on the images loads their full-size version using the theme’s own lightbox effect, which can be disabled if you’d rather use a plugin of your own. You can also link to image files in the text like this.
