Hi Sam, you can use the Flickr gallery widget. On the sidebar click on "Multimedia" Then drag over "Flickr Gallery" A dialog will pop up. Once it is done loading it will already have pictures in there. You'll need to have an account with Flickr first if you don't already. Sign up for Flickr here: Once you signed up for Flickr go back to Yola and in that dialog box, click on "Settings" and type in the email you used to sign up for Flickr, then type in a search term to search for photos that you want. Then you can drag those bars for the number of images to display and for the number of columns there are. Next click the size of the images you want. Then check if you want them framed or not. After you are done with that, click on "Save"

I hope this helps!

If you need any more info or help with this please let us know.

Hello Sam

In addition to Nathan's suggestion, here are a couple more options for adding a row of pictures on your page:

1. You can add a Column Divider Widget, and drag another Column Divider Widget and place inside one of the columns (then you'll have four columns). Then add a Picture Widget into each column - you can add as many Column Divider Widgets as you like, bearing in mind that you might be restricted by the width of the style template you have chosen. Here is the tutorial on How to use Column Divider Widget.
2. You can use a Text Widget and then click on the "Picture" button (the icon is a picture of a tree in a frame on the Text Editing Toolbar ). Separate each image you insert by typing a space after the image. Click on the link to follow the steps to this in our Adding pictures to my text Tutorial.
