Add an image gallery in Pages on Mac
With an image gallery, you can view a collection of photos in one place on a page, so only one shows at a time. You might want to do this, for example, if you plan to export your document in EPUB format and publish it to Apple Books, so readers can tap or click through the images as they would through a slideshow.
Click in the toolbar, then choose Image Gallery.
Drag the image gallery to reposition it on the page, and drag any selection handle to resize it.
To add images, drag them from your computer to the image gallery.
To customize the image gallery, make sure it’s still selected, then do any of the following:
Adjust the position or zoom level of an image: Double-click the image on the page, then drag it to move it in the frame. Drag the slider to zoom.
Reorder images: In the Format sidebar, click the Gallery tab, then drag image thumbnails to reorder them.
Add an image description that can be used by assistive technology (for example, VoiceOver): Click the Gallery tab in the Format sidebar, then click an image thumbnail. Enter your text in the Image Description text box. The image description isn’t visible anywhere in your document.
You can also add a title to an image gallery, as well as add captions to individual images or all images. See Add a caption or title to objects in Pages on Mac.
To view the image gallery, click or .
To remove an image from the gallery, in the Format sidebar, click the Gallery tab, click the image thumbnail, then press Delete.
