View Full Version : How do I batch more than 100 images
August 17th, 2008, 01:22 PM
I have the integrated VB version of photopost and I have over 100,000 images to get into the gallery... I have them on the server in the correct dir and I can process up to 100 images at a time.. You can see the time it will take to do the import at 100 at a time... I can see that in the pro version there is an option to process the images on the server and it might take off and process them all but I need the integration into VB for the rest of the time... Is there a way to import or change the setting in the integrated version to make this work?
I have a dedicated very very robust server to manage all of this.

You can batch upload more than a 100 there is no restriction you just need to process so many at a time before it goes to the next page because of server resources prevent timeouts etc.

thanks Chuck, can you tell me if there is a way to do lets say 1000 at a time instead of 100 at a time... I have a dual socket quad core server with 3 10k Drives and plenty of Ram... this is the only task it has to run now so I have the resources for more... if I have to do it 100 at a time it will take forever

well you could theoretically try to alter your upload template in some way to add new selections for how many to process at once but no guarantee your servers image processor is going to process 1000 at a time if you do 100 at a time then that just means 10 pages of 100 are done

As stated then feel free to modify the code in your adv_gallery_upload template

I changed the code to 1000 and it imports fine. It takes a little longer on the first page, I'm sure this is some sort of dir listing that is going on in the background but once the first page of thumbs show the process was pretty quick.
