albumthumb = "path/to/album/cover/image"
date = "2016-10-21T19:07:17+03:00"
title = "index"

{{< photo full="path/to/first/FULL-SIZE/image/in/your/gallery.jpg" thumb="path/to/its/THUMBNAIL/image.jpg" alt="" phototitle="SOME TITLE" description="SOME SHORT DESCRIPTION. MARKDOWN **SUPPORTED**. REPEAT THIS SHORTCODE FOR EVERY IMAGE YOU HAVE IN THIS GALLERY">}}

Change the title of your album and set the url of album's cover. Then fill the shortcode fields with the first image data. Repeat the shortcode for every image in the gallery. You may use both local and remote images.
