Gallery: Can you create files as initially unpublished?

In 9.2 I'm experimenting with using a gallery. I want to be able to upload files to the gallery and then publish them at an appropriate, later time.  As an administrator or a gallery owner, when I upload a file, it's created as PUBLISHED and I have to manage the gallery to toggle it unpublished.  This lets the file exist in the published state for a minute or so until it's toggled.  Is there a way to create the content with the default status of unpublished?  Thanks in advance.
