    A lot of news and magazine sites these days will paginate their photos.   For example http://www.frommers.com/slideshow/index.cfm?p=2&group=611&cat_cd=ARTCULTURE#slide or http://www.cnbc.com/id/49886743/?slide=2  .

    Each page is a photo with description, and they are linked together with “previous” and “next” arrows, along with a counter showing you what slide you are on.

    Is there a plugin available for this, free or paid?  I’m not even sure what the terminology is for this type of functionality so I have had no luck looking it up.   I saw a few plugins to paginate the gallery, but this just shows several thumbnails per page, when I’m wanting one picture and one description per page.

    Wordpress already creates a page for each image attachment. You need to set the link for that image to point to the attachment page. You would need to add in the pagination though.

    I’m still a little confused.  Here is one I found on a WordPress site:  http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/30/10-cute-animals-that-are-ready-not-ready-for-christmas-slideshow/

    This is doing exactly what I want to do. It looks like they’ve created a post for each slide (since it has its own url, image, and content) and then are somehow grouping them together with pagination.    I can’t tell by looking at their source code what plugin is in use for this or if its some custom solution. But I see these setups everywhere and thought there would be a plugin that would pretty much do this for me, so that I could then show clients how to do it on their sites.

    I see one of the plugins they are using is something called Lazy Loads. It’s free and in the repository – see if this is what you are looking for http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/lazy-load/.

    **I added the wrong link before, so it’s not the link that showed up in your email.**

    Thanks for the suggestion but I also saw that plugin in use and it is just for delaying the loading of images until they are visible to the user (to make the page load faster).

    I think I have found a workable solution:  http://www.nextgen-gallery.com/basic-imagebrowser-gallery/

    Nextgen’s Imagebrowser can load a different picture per page, and the caption can be used to supply the content.

    It’s not quite as robust as http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/30/10-cute-animals-that-are-ready-not-ready-for-christmas-slideshow/ which appears to use posts for each slide, instead of images/captions, but I think this will work.  However, if anyone reading this does know how dailycaller.com pulled off their implementation, please share.
