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:
Where to create gallery...
1) Go to Gallery > Add Gallery/Images > Add New Gallery. Choose the gallery in the dropdown to upload your images to, or create a new gallery by entering the name of your gallery in the text field.
*If you'd like to create your gallery directly from your page or post, navigate to the insert gallery window 'Add Gallery' button here:
Next, click the 'Add Gallery / Images' tab
2) You have three options of uploading images:
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 WordPress Media
a. Select folder to import images to, or provide a name to create a new gallery.
b. Click 'Select Images' and the WordPress media window will open where you'll select your images to import.
c. Click 'Select'. This will import the images to your gallery that will appear under Gallery > Manage Galleries.
Import Folder of Images on Server
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, but if you keep this option unchecked, 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
