  • Hi,
    Sorry, maybe this question already exists. I’m relatively new to WP and even newer to NextGen.
    Can I import my photos from my WP Media Library into NextGen?
    It seems that you would do this through ‘import image folder’, but I’m not clever enough yet to know how to do this. I use Bluehost.

    I thought I saw a post that said it was impossible to import from the Media Library, but I want to make sure.

    If it’s not possible, then what’s my next best solution since where I live (remote Cambodia), I have to pay per kb uploaded/downloaded. Uploading the same files 2 times is twice the cost, plus twice the hassle.

    However, I do not know if this is considered an “upload” for your Internet costs.
