Well i got news..
I am betatesting a new importer.. that will be included with vbgallery 3 from beta 3 on..
it works a bit differently
tested it on a site with 100.000+ images and was working...
Why i say it works differently?
because it is much more basic.
it only imports images from photopost categories to existing vbgallery categories.
2 dropdowns.. source cat -> destination cat..
drawback .. its more work if you have many many categories..
advantage.. you can import images from photopost and keep your existing vbgallery images..
and.. there is an undo.. (if you are not satisfied with the import)
As i said its very basic, imports only big image and comments..
then in vbgallery.. you can regenerate the images.., the thumbnails and (thats new.. resize the originals if needed)
then you have an option to finalize.. i.e. remove all database entries that enable the undo...
I cant release it before beta 3, because it requires 3 or 4 little changes to vbgallery that will be included in beta 3..
but you can see allready a screenshot..
