    If I understand correctly, this puts the (manipulated/optimised) images for a photo gallery back on the wordpress server in the media library, which completely bypasses the cloudinary advantages of using externaly hosted images and distributed servers...

    Not at all. These images will still be delivered using Cloudinary and via our CDN, including all its benefits.

    If you notice anything different please feel free to share more information here or via a support ticket.

    Hi.
    Is it possible to add more than one image at once? Or I have to add one by one?
    Thank you.

    In the process te images have to be added one by one in Gallery using "Add to post gallery" option?

    (sorry for bad english)

    Hi Felipe and Shariat,

    Indeed, at the moment, this functionality only allows selecting images from Cloudinary one-by-one .

    Thank you Nadav Ofir!
    I've found a method, that is much more comfortable for me. Hope, it would be useful for you and others,
    1. Upload all images, using Wordoress media library.
    2. In Media Library Cloundary has its own column, where we can upload to the cloud every image, we need, clicking one after another without page reloading.
    http://prnt.sc/cbha2p
    3. All uploaded and sent to Cloundary images will appear, when we click Add media on the edit-page.
    That's all. This takes less time and operations.

    Hi Nadav.

    Will there be a bulk function "add to post gallery" in the future? The solution from Shariat is good but it ignores the complete folder structure in Cloudinary which is not really a help in our image organization.

    Hi Rene,
    This capability is on our roadmap to add, and while I don't have an ETA to share, we will make sure to update here once it becomes available.

    Enjoyed Shariat's tip which works nicely in lieu of the ability to do bulk uploading. Unfortunately it seems that approach strips some of the photo's meta data. Specifically it stripped out photo captions when I tried it. Is there a setting I'm missing or work-around to prevent this?

    OMG! TY! This is the answer I've been searching for for two days!! It should be explained in the docs pleas. As for Shariat's tip, yes it works nicer. However, it does not delete all the images that resulted on the underlying server, which is the reason I need a cloud service int he first place. Love this service. Just wish the docs, as absolutely generous as they are, were more user friendly to us code-challenged people. I find way more answers here than I do in the docs. This shouldn't be. But again, thank you for this answer, though it does seem a bit of an awkward way to do it, at least it gets the job done.

    Hi Daniel,

    Thank you for your feedback. We are always looking for ways to extend our plugin functionality so we appreciate the feedback.

    In the meantime as a workaround, you can bulk upload your images directly to WordPress first and then bulk upload them to Cloudinary.

    You can also add your images to your Post Gallery first which will then insert them into your Media Library to use.

    Doesn't work with https. Uploading to cloudinary sets the url to http:// on the media. Which makes it Pretty useless as https has become standard.

    Hi Richard,

     

    Changing the bulk upload to be https by default is something that is on our roadmap to add.

    There is currently no ETA for this, but when it would be implemented, we would update the thread.

    Hi, is the bulk upload feature available now? It's been 3 years already.
