  • Some photos in Gallery2.
  • The import settings screen.
  • The import process.
  • The same photos in a WordPress page’s gallery.


  1. Upload the plugin directory to /wp-content/plugins/
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to Tools → Import and choose Gallery2 from the list.
  4. Fill in your Gallery2 database settings and import preferences.

NOTE: You should increase your PHP memory limit if the importer stops when it reaches a large image file. In testing, it used up to 82MB on some JPGs. It also takes a fair amount of time — 20 minutes for a test gallery containing about 900 photos.
