I need to upload around 10000 images to a single album. What is the easiest way to do this.
I would like to ftp the photos to a folder within the gallery folder, and the follow the instructions provide for creating a gallery using ftp. I have tried this but get errors having to due with the filenames of some of the images.
Please note that I have also tried uploading approximately 500 images using the upload photos option in the admin panel , and do not get any filename errors.
Please note that I used the same images for both tests.
it's normal : the upload via web change the name of the files.
That an old limitation for Synchronization... we may work on it for future releases
just rename your files proprely : see Photos->add->Ftp+synchr
Renaming would be a lot of work, considering I have over 10,000 images to upload.
not a lot
I have also thousands of pictures and I use the ftp method usually : just use a batch rename/manager... I use an old one, Siren.exe, but there is a ton of software on every OS
Using the ftp needs preparation : thumbnails, name of files etc We will work on it, in order to be more user friendly
currently not (we don't work exactly like that) but that feature is registered in the bugtracker
