    I added a new gallery, then selected photos. The progress bar was showing the uploading on each photo. But when it was finished on each, I got the message "ERROR HTTP error: HTTP error" after each photo was finished. The pictures didn't upload.

    How large are your images? Did you resize them for the web? Many times large images (>300KB) will cause problems when uploading.

    Here is an excellent article describing best practices for using images on the internet: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/webmaster/tips-for-optimizing-your-web-images/283

    Note that the author suggests an absolute maximum file size of 100KB for high quality images.

    I have resized the photos and am still getting the http error. Using NExtgen plugin. Is there something going on with this plugin?

    Can you upload images through Admin->Media?
