What is a gallery blog post?

Gallery post is a post format which we use to create a blog post with image/photo gallery embedded within a blog. You can see a gallery post on this demo link. On this link, we have a gallery with image slider as a post thumbnail instead of an image. You can play this slider even from a home page without going to the blog post. In this demo link, we have embedded a slider of 4 different images. You can click on previous, next buttons to navigate through the slider.
