Need Word Macro to Select Graphics Files and Insert Each Separated by Hard Return

I need to be able to start a macro in a new or existing document that will:
1. Allow me to go to a folder.
2. Select individual graphics files in the folder.
3. Click on OK.
4. The graphics files would then be inserted into the document:
Graphics File 1
Paragraph Mark
Graphics File 2
Paragraph Mark
Graphics File 3
Paragraph Mark
...
Last File
Paragraph Mark
LVL 1

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Have you tried recording one? That should get you started.

I recorded the following macro.

There are several limitations that I would like help fixing:
1) The folder that will be used will differ each time I use it.
2) The number of pictures chosen will vary each time I use ti.
3) The pictures come in touching other.  
    I want two or more hard returns/paragraph marks between them.
    (see Before and After Pictures below).

This uses the Office File dialogue to select the files which are placed after the current selection.
Sub InsertPics()
    Dim fd As FileDialog
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim ilsh As InlineShape
    
    Set fd = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)
    Dim strFileName As Variant
    
    With fd
        .Filters.Clear
        .Filters.Add "All files", "*.*"
        .Filters.Add "Images", "*.gif; *.jpg; *.jpeg", 1
        If .Show Then
            Set rng = Selection.Range
            rng.Collapse wdCollapseEnd
            For Each strFileName In .SelectedItems
                Set ilsh = ActiveDocument.InlineShapes.AddPicture(strFileName, False, True, rng)
                Set rng = ilsh.Range
                rng.Collapse wdCollapseEnd
                rng.Text = vbCr & vbCr
                rng.Collapse wdCollapseEnd
            Next strFileName
        End If
    End With
