The wrench 'Configure' icon provides access to add/clear the image and adjust settings in the other tabs.
Beware, your view of the image order in the Assets Console may not be the true order. Often the Assets Console shows a sorted view, not the true order that is used for the gallery. And this sorted order is also mirrored in the Content Tree. To see the true order, go to the List view, and make sure none of the column headings has any up or down arrows next to them. Click the arrows if present one or two times until they go away. This is the natural order.
When all is ready and the page is published, be sure to check the published gallery.
The wrench icon provides access to change all settings.

Too many images or large images (over 1 MB each) may cause this component to load slowly or not at all. > Known Issue: Photo Galleries Do Not Load or Load Very Slowly
Sometimes the image order on a live page may not match what is shown in Author or the parent Assets folder. > Known Issue: Images Are Out of Order
Alternative text ('Alt text') is a best practice for all your UBCMS images and is often required for accessibility so screen readers can tell visually disabled users what they are not seeing.
Images displayed in a Photo Gallery always require Alt text, which must be manually provided in Assets for each image.
Best practice, Alt text should be added whenever an image is uploaded into Assets.
