    jeveons,

    I don't believe you can upload images from you WP media section to nextgen. What you could do is access your WP uploads folder (wp-content/uploads) via you FTP client, copy all the full-size images you uploaded to your WP media library and paste them into the nextgen-gallery upload section (Dashboard > Gallery > Add Gallery/Images). That will at least save you the time of having to hunt down all the images on your hard drive/computer.
