This plugin allows you to import albums, images, and comments from a Gallery2 installation into your WordPress site. Albums will be saved as pages containing the [gallery] shortcode, and images will be saved as attachments.

- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Go to Tools → Import and choose Gallery2 from the list.

NOTE: You should increase your PHP memory limit if the importer stops when it reaches a large image file. In testing, it used up to 82MB on some JPGs. It also takes a fair amount of time — 20 minutes for a test gallery containing about 900 photos.
