Adding Images (Uploading/Zip Files/Image Folders)

We know that a lot of our users are photographers, and have hundreds of  images they would like to upload in one large batch. Here is how you do this:

1) Go to Gallery > Add Gallery/Images > Add New Gallery. Here you will name the gallery you will be uploading your images too. If you are adding images to a previously created gallery, skip this step.

Dashboard_AddGallery

*If you’d like to upload/create your gallery directly from your page or post through the Insert Gallery Window , first click the NextGEN Gallery green icon in the text editing toolbar here:

ATP_Toolbar

Next, click the ‘Add Gallery / Images’ tab

ATP_ReviewPanel

2) You have three options of uploading images:

Add Gallery/Images

Dashboard_AddGalleryFull

a. First, choose the gallery to upload images to (or create new)
b. Select your image files from your computer, or drag a batch of images (you can include .zip files) and drop them in the queue to upload
c. Click ‘Start Upload’

Import image folder

Dashboard_Import

a. Select a folder to import. *The folder name will be used as the title of the gallery.
b. You may select to keep images in original location, if you keep this option unselected, images will be copied over to your NextGEN ‘gallery’ folder under /wp-content/gallery
c. Click ‘Import folder’. This will import the images in that folder on your server, to a new folder that will appear under Gallery > Manage Galleries
