What is the best way to upload multiple photos into a photo gallery - we generally have to show any images to our database and loading them one at a time if frankly... making me nuts ! Am I missing something here? Where is the option or way to load a photo album into a photo gallery?

Hi Celeste3477,

Welcome to the Community!

Unfortunately you can only upload one photo at a time with the photo gallery element. If you use your file manager you can upload all the images at once, but you would still have to load them one at a time into your photo gallery.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks,

Chris

like Celeste3477... I too find this very frustrating!! I sometimes add 50 to 100 photos to my photo gallery, and to load them ONE at a time is crazy!!

I am currently trying the Intuit site on a trial basis, but if I have to deal with photos one at a time... that sure isn't going to work for me.

I would hope at some point, Intuit/Homestead would review this process and realize it is highly unproductive for those of us that use our websites for featuring images of items on a regular basis

UGH!!!

Chris Folmer - when is this going to change? in exploring other options and based upon the amount of $ it costs us to keep our business with Homestead, this is NOT something we should be dealing with - there needs to be a fix very soon - how soon is this going to change???

Hi Celeste3477,

Again, sorry for your frustrations. I've submitted it as an Idea for our development team to look into, but it isn't currently on their list of upgrades. I don't have an ETA on when something like this will be available, but as soon as I hear back, I'll update this thread. Thanks ^Chris

This is my main frustration with intuit! I've been asking for a change for the photo gallery since 2010! I understand uploading one at a time if you just want one picture, but if you are doing a gallery shouldn't you be able to upload more than one at a time. Facebook can do it, why can't you? This is ridiculous! My site is mainly based on pictures, I had to start putting in Facebook links because it takes too darn long to upload one picture at a time! This seriously needs to be changed! www.wavesofworshipflagministry.com

Hi All,

I know it can be frustrating uploading images one at a time. Unfortunately we do not have an eta for if/when this feature will be upgraded as Chris mentioned above.

When we know more, we'll be sure to update you all.

Thanks,
Ehsan
