How to create a Gallery within a Gallery, or within a Folder, that I can put on my Homepage

I currently have 12 Galleries on my Homepage as well as a Slideshow of photos. I want to put a Gallery on the Home Page called "New Work" which when clicked will open to a choice of three new Galleries: Eastern Sierra, Colorado, and Southern Utah. I can't figure out how to do this. When I use Customize/Content and Design/Add Content Block/ when I choose either Galleries or Photos it says "Drag onto page", which is greyed out. Help!

    I have 12 galleries on my Homepage which all contain individual photos. I would like to add a gallery called "New Photos" which when you click on it opens to three galleries inside it. Each of those galleries would have a different title and contain individual photos. Is this possible? How?

    I think what you want to do is create a New Photos folder on your home page and put the three galleries with pics in it. I don't think you can put a gallery within another gallery.

    How do I put a gallery in a folder? I tried dragging and dropping an empty gallery into a folder in my Fine Art Photography section but nothing happens. Do I have to put the New Photos folder on my Home Page before I can put a gallery in it?

    Or in Organizer go to the folder containing the empty gallery. It will show on right. Drag it to the folder you want moved to in the left tree.

    You'll want to go into the Organizer and create a Folder called "New Work" and inside that put your 3 galleries.

    Folders can contain sub-folders, galleries, and "Pages".
    Galleries can only contain photos.

    So to create a hierarchy, you create Folders, and can put Sub-folders and/or galleries in them

    I would like to have separate galleries within my Store - for example, I would like to break down galleries where I have plants, animals, landscapes and sports images.
