how about ability to sort media by saving them into folders when uploading?

    Perhaps a model could be the Lightroom plug-in. This plugin attempts to fill deficiencies in Lightroom's built-in Auto-Import facilities, allowing you to auto-import images in place, in a folder or a whole tree of folders.

    To elaborate on a previous post, Add From Server seems to do this already. The only restriction is that your tree of folders must fall below your /wp-content/uploads (or wherever you set your media library).

    For example, I created a folder named "/wp-content/uploads/photos/asia/china/lijiang/" containing a bunch of images. Then I used Add From Server to add the images to the media library. The attachment records contained relative paths, such as "photos/asia/china/lijiang/photo1.jpg"

    Use a plugin, like NextGen Gallery.

    You might have a problem if you have a low memory_limit in your php environment or you have a very large image (resolution, not size).

    NextGen is what I use, it isn't perfect, but it gets the job done.

    While a plug-in might work for now, there are limitations (see previous postings). Nevertheless, it does seem to be the best solution for now.

    Some plugins are really good and well designed, but the gap Nextgen filled was a simple administration system at the back end which can also handle multiple galleries.

    I love NextGen and, in the past, installed it by default on every site I developed. The problem I encountered was cross-browser support for slideshows and other addons.

    More recently, I do not deploy NextGen unless the site is oriented toward gallery displays. Instead, I use plugins like Portfolio Slideshow that use a post's attached images.

    I refer to my previous post regarding the use of Add From Server, which maintains a directory tree within the Media Library. This means that you can choose the correct solution for the needs of your website.

    If a website is heavy on gallery displays, then use NextGen.

    If your site is light on gallerys, upload to subdirectories of the Media Library and then Add from Server.
