Need way for users to upload a picture and text into a gallery

Hi
I want to create a gallery page where users upload a picture and then provide captions for the picture. I need it to be completely user generated but I need to approve or reject the particular upload easily
Once the picture and caption are uploaded they need to be arranged into a very nice gallery

I need the mechanism for users to upload the picture and the caption text and then have it automatically go to a gallery style page on my website

thank you

    Hey Michael,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    WordPress features a nice gallery engine that let's you add captions and organize pictures. All the users with a right to create posts should be automatically able to use it (it's accessible via Media Library button above the post editor).

    Depending on a role assigned, user may be able to create post but not publish it, so this would allow you to "moderate" galleries/posts.

    However, I understand that you seek for a more specialized solution. I think one of the advanced gallery plugins should do the job. Another solution I can think of would be this plugin:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress-media/

    There's (unfortunately paid) add-on for it that supports moderation, so you may want to take a look at it.

    Alternatively, you may want to try other way: use any kind of gallery plugin you wish with addition of User Role Editor plugin.

    I hope this helps and if you have any further questions, I'll be glad to assist!

    Cheers,
    Adam
