I would like to use gallery software as it is by default
integrated in to ClarkConnect distribution.
I have 10000+ images on my harddrive in multiple of
(sub)directories. All this is under one top directory called
Now, I could mount or make symbolic link to this top
image directory/storage, so that all the images would
appear under gallery's album directory immediately.
Nice idea to bring all images online immediately, but it
does not work, as gallery complains about directories,
which has not been uploaded by the gallery tools.
I will not start uploading thousands of images into
gallery manually or with special tools, instead I will use
Pigalle, which does the "auto indexing" for me
Each (sub)directory, will automatically appear as new
album. The Album structure is the same as directories
and sub-directories. Each Album is named
automatically as (sub)directory name.
Additionally, the thumbnails, resized cache image files
and metadata are in separate storage/directory, out of
messing my images directories.
