I was faced with the problem of uploading 200+ images from our mountain trip a little while ago. Unfortunately Tabulas only had supposed 5 images per upload, which is wayyyy too small. I had recently discovered that Windows XP has an API for upload images to websites so I started hacking away at it last week. Well, I got it to finally work last night and today I uploaded all 200+ images from the mountain trip using the API.

This is pretty sweet; all you do is select the images you want to publish from Windows XP, click the "Publish to Web" wizard, fill in your login information, and watch as the thing uploads all your images to your site! No more 5 images at a time!

It amuses me that only out of laziness do I ever get around to getting stuff done for Tabulas. Sigh. And in order to make screenshots for this how-to, I had to upload a cute puppies and kitten album to my gallery. Fun.

The first step is downloading a file that will let Windows XP recognize Tabulas as a valid site. Download this file and run it; it will modify your registry. (Just clicking it might not work; try right clicking it, saving it, and running it from your computer)

Once you have done this, select the images you wish to upload to your Tabulas:

Click the "Publish to Web" button on the left once you have selected all the images you wish to upload. This should launch a wizard. Click "Next" twice (first screen is an intro, second screen verifies which images you want to upload).

Select Tabulas, and then click "Next." It will ask you for your login information; put it in and then you should get a list of your albums:

Select your album and hit "Next:"

I suggest selecting the largest size so that Tabulas stores a large original copy; if your net connection sucks, use the smallest setting. Click "Next" and your images will all upload to your Tabulas!

Test it out and let me know how you like it. I think I'll expand this to allow you to also upload radio and media files.

It's not working for me. =( But uploading pictures to my gallery isn't working for me at all, so maybe that's the problem? =/
