Hi guys,
Wondering if you could help me out. I work on this website that is very rich in images. We cover sporting events and need to upload a HUGE number of images onto our servers. We have a content management system, but to sit there and upload each image individually takes forever. One option that we've been using is to create the galleries in photoshop and then upload them onto the server. But, we want to be able to compare images. Any ideas on the best way to do this?

a. To upload hundreds of pictures and turn them into photogalleries.
b. To be able to bring up individual images in a search to compare the images.

Any advice is GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks!

Welcome to WebmasterWorld raphlo2.

Take a look a gallery or one of the other photo/image/gallery CMS systems. Sounds like you're using the wrong tool for the job if you have to upload like that. A decent system will allow you to upload image files in batches.

Can you suggest any of these cms/photogallery systems by any chance?

I did. It's called gallery. ;)
It's an open source project on SourceForge.

Sorry about that. I checked it out and it looks great. My only concern is that our servers may not run php. Right now our CMS is coded in Perl. Are they compatible?

I'm not sure about a Perl only image gallery. I haven't used one. Maybe a look through the image gallery software at opensourceCMS might turn one up.
