Primer: WordPress photo gallery without a plugin

Otto has created a very thorough primer to create a WordPress photo gallery without a plugin. He walks you through understanding pictures and galleries, creating and modifying an image template, and tweaking image and thumbnail sizes.

He reminds us:

You don’t really need plugins to create photo galleries. WordPress has a huge amount of gallery functionality built right in. You just need to make your theme smarter in order to take advantage of it.
