Adding photos in wordpress is ridiculously difficult

I started writing another post, but I wanted to add 10 photos to it.  Inserting photos let me upload 10 photos, but then my option seems to either add a gallery, or to add each one individually.  I don’t know what a gallery is, and I want to intersperse text around my photo, so I decided to add each one.  The only way I could find to do this was to

  1. press the upload/insert button
  2. find the photo that I want
  3. click another button to show more info
  4. click a button to insert it into my page

This is when the insert photo stuff goes away(!) and I have to start all over again.

And to make things even worse, the photos that I see on my desktop as rotated, showed up with a broken image and weren’t rotated when I inserted them into my post!

If it is easier than this, then it isn’t obvious.  And it should be obvious and easy.  This is an action I want to do often.  Why is it so hard?
