I recently found out that Gallery is going to hibernation, when I was trying to update my install. It’s sad but really understandable. Everybody has their own lives and I could attest to that. People move on and prioritize more important things such as family, school or work.
In light of all of this, I have decided to just move all my photos to my wordpress blog. This would consolidate all my photos since I am mostly using WP to post photos anyway. The only problem is how do I upload my photos to my WP. Physically, all my photos are on the same server albeit on a different hard drive . But, there isn’t a clear way to upload my stuff to WP. I found a plugin “Add from Server” which at first looked promising but It failed the first time I tried it. I am thinking I can just add the photos through PhpMyadmin. I need to investigate further.
