Is there a way to load multiple photos into the Vault all at once, instead of one at a time? One classmate has 75 GREAT photos, but I really don't want to upload one at a time. Same question about insert from Vault to the Gallery Creator.

I have the same question. Wink

Vault no, Gallery Creator yes. I would organize your photos into directories locally so that you can click Browse > and then do a Select All (CTRL A) and then click Open (or Select depending on the browser). Then, sit back and watch them load. If they are large files, this process may take some time as the system will also resize the photos on the way up.

I should use Gallery Creator allowing classmates the opportunity to upload their photos. I thought that was correct but wanted to be certain and know it was possible to load a large number.

Yes. In Gallery Creator you can use standard window selection options to select multiple photos for batch upload. Like any of these:

1) Just press control-A to select all photos in a given directory
2) Hold down the control key and click on the specific photos you wish to upload
3) Click a photo, hold down the shift key, and then click another photo somewhere down on the list. This will select the top photo you clicked on, the bottom photo you clicked on, and all the photos in between.

These standard ways of selecting multiple photos are not working for me. Nor are the instructions that users should see showing up.

Also, I no longer see a way to simply call up the vault and add multiple photos. Wasted a lot of time trying out variations.

Brad's instuctions only apply in the uploader used when adding photos in Gallery Creator. They are not applicable to direct interactions with the File Vault.
