Looking for the smartest way to upload groups of files for family to view and or download.  I am using the regular site builder tool not the web based one, I tried using photo gallery but don't like how I can't import multiple photos I have to do one at a time which is a real pain when you have over 1000 photos. 

What I did was made folders of pictures from various branches of our family and I am trying to figure out the easiest way for my family members to come in and see a particular family and their photos and download them if desired.

The main issue with using the photo gallery button thing is I see no way to import more than one photo at a time, which would take me ages to do each one one at a time, I thought about making each folder a zip file for download but i'd like them to be able to view them too by clicking on them or something.

Thanks for any ideas or suggestions.

You can use the file manager in Sitebuilder Plus(online) to select multiple images from your computer and upload them, but you can't do this with the desktop program.

I was able to get the desktop version to upload them in big batches by uploading via folders, so each folder has anywhere from 20-150 individual jpgs, what I am trying to do is figure out the best way to share these with family via a webpage layout. 

The photo gallery option where it creates a thumbnail to click and view a larger image seems fine, but it doesn't appear to have a batch type option, unless you mean the online plus version allows batch creation of photo gallery items?  

Just trying to figure out the best way for family to come in and view/download all the pics, the photo gallery thing seems like a decent option but it's a bit clunky and doing each one by hand will take a long time, just thought there might be something I am not thinking of as an option.

Unfortunately not. With Sitebuilder you can't images in large groups to a gallery. In the new Websitebuilder you can add to a gallery in groups of 20. You might consider a 3rd party photo album. If it works via HTML, that may be a solution, but it can sometimes get tricky too. It is possible the code would need to be edited a little bit.
