Adding images of documents

I spent many years gathering historical family documents at archives and would like to share them on WikiTree.  But it would take a lot of space.  One will is 7 images for example. How can I do it without making a huge profile?

Create a free space page. Title and number each document image you upload then when you create a profile, says will is document X and use the link to the free space page in [[. ]] like any other source.

Thanks, Eddie.  I can do that.  Much better than cluttering up the profile -and easier too!  Barb

For a multi-page document, I would suggest converting the pages into a pdf.  There are a variety of tools to do this.  One free tool that I've used successfully many times is https://www.convert-jpg-to-pdf.net/.  After converting your jpg images to a pdf, you can upload the pdf to the profile involved using the upload images function.

I would second this. It keeps the images together and in sequence.
I was just going to ask what it is that makes it better . . but you answered it. I don't like seeing those signs for pdf but finding them in the Free Space lineup is tedioius for sure.  Thank you both!   I'll try it out.
