I have recently written a little utility in .NET 2.0 that builds a web page from all the images in any given folder on the site hosting the utility. This allows me to use the "Retrieve all images from a URL:" from the Extra Options section of the Upload Images page. It totally beats having to upload the images one by one from a local drive.

You can add the application to your web site and then use it by referencing the folder that contains the images you want to upload.

The URL you would use then looks something like this:
http://{yourwebsite}/{utilapplocation}/quickgallery.aspx?fldr={localPathToImageFolder}

If you are interested in it, let me know and I will email you a zip you can put on your .NET 2.0 site.

The only drawback is that the "Retrieve all images from a URL:" text box is limited to 75 characters, which might be too small for some sites.

I guess I'm missing something. When I want to copy all the photos from my website to my hard drive or from a folder to my hard drive, or vice versa, I just load an FTP program, navigate to whatever folder and in a few clicks the photos are all on the way to my computer. Any FTP program will give this ability and it will work on both Unix servers (about 80% of the server base) or Windows platforms.

I might mention that you should carefully check your app to be sure there are no security flaws as these kinds of programs can often leave holes in your server's defense against hacking.

Cheers,
rfs

rfs:

Yep totally. The only purpose of this utility is to dynamically display all the images in a folder on the hosting site. I developed it so I could ftp all my I want on my G1 profile. Since I can't FTP my images to G1, I then use the utility to load all those images to my profile using G1's "Retrieve all images from a URL:" option.

Thanks for the feedback.
