This is a WordPress plugin that scans a folder in your WordPress and its subfolders containing images. The subfolders will be the categories that will appear at the top, and the plugin will make a grid responsive gallery with the images.
You only need to Drag and Drop images into a folder. And add the gallery in your posts or pages with this short code: [autoGrid]
You only need to take care of organizing your images in folders and if you want adding thumbnails.
The images are uploaded via FTP, so you can take advantage of the goodies of FTP uploads using droplets. For example: “transmit” (for MAC) or “FTP Droplet Lite” (for Windows)
Then you only would have to drag and drop the images into a folder in your desktop computer and that’s it, the droplet will automatically connect to your folder in your WordPress.
If you don’t want to use FTP you can use another plugins to upload files through the WP admin page using File Manager Plugins like this one: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-filemanager/screenshots/ you only need to point it to where your Gallery folder is and then manage your images! this is just an example, out there must be lots of better file manager plugins!
