Does exactly what I was looking for! Uploading files via FTP can be much easier than dealing with WP's uploaders, and this lets me use them the same way! Thank you!

This plugin allowed me to import all of my media, quickly and easily, without hassle.

Great for handling a managed migration

I used this when I wanted to migrate the /uploads/ directory without porting the whole WordPress database. The plugin was great at letting me re-expose just the uploads my client needed back into the Media Library.

Others have commented that it creates a lot of duplicate images. But I found by importing just the original copy of each image, it created just a single image in the library with all the sizes correctly accounted for.

Very useful. Saved me a ton of time. Thanks!

Simple and effective

This works, even with hundreds of images. Nice job.

Worked Great!

I'm having permission issues on my server so I ftp'd 3 image files to the WordPress /uploads folder. ftp worked fine but WordPress wouldn't display them in the Media library. Add From Server let me navigate to the correct folder on the server and then select (checkmark) the 3 individual image files to import. I was afraid that it would work only at the directory level and I'd end up a bunch of duplicates, but it added only the 3 files I wanted.

I love simple tools that do exactly they say they are going to do, nothing more and nothing less. Add From Server is my new favorite tool.

One of the essential tools

Excellent tool for importing files that should have been part of WP core already!

Well integrated with the Media Library and Per-post Insert File dialogs. Exactly what the doctor ordered :)
