Download pictures within album and sub-albums directories tree

Hi

I use Piwigo v2.4.7 on my hosted web server.
I want to retrieve my original pictures but I also want to keep the directories tree organization of my albums and sub-albums...

As my 1GB hosted server is full, I have planed to FTP download directories 'upload' and 'galleries' (virtual and physical albums). But, even if all my pictures are within these directories, the album tree organization is not respected! 

Therefore before the download, I have to find a way to reflect the album & pictures organisation into the 'upload' and 'galleries' directories tree. I do not care about the duplicated pictures within several albums : the redundant pictures can be just symbolic links... I found the plugin Synchronize local directory, but it has not be updated for a while.

What do you advice ?

I posted the same question in the French-speaking forum:

Have a look at Piwigo Import Tree.  I have used it very successfully to import a directory tree structure into albums and sub-albums on Piwigo.
Look at http://piwigo.org/ext/extension_view.php?eid=606

Thanks Tadjio

But I am afraid plugin Piwigo Import Tree is just to upload pictures from local directory to remote Piwigo web site. I do not think this plugin downloads picture from Piwigo web site into local directory of my computer.

Please let me know if I am wrong...

Re: Download pictures within album and sub-albums directories tree

oHessling, this may an indirect solution, but here's an idea I had. My Piwigo plugin, called S3Upload http://piwigo.org/ext/extension_view.php?eid=691 can copy gallery photos to an Amazon S3 storage account.

Here's what I think would work: Use an existing or a new S3 account and use the Batch Manger with S3Upload command to select all photos for upload. When uploading is complete (depends mostly on how many and how large the image files are), you can use an FTP client that's handles the Amazon S3 protocol (I use Transmit on Mac OS X) to download all the photos (in their folder hierarchy) down to your local computer with just a single drag-and-drop procedure.

The drawback is there could be a cost for the Amazon file transfers (check http://aws.amazon.com/free/ about the free allotment) and storage (if you don't delete the S3 file copies). And it could take some time to process a large photo gallery.

Anyway, just an idea to think about.
