One of the nice features of Gallery2 is the ability to upload pictures directly to your online gallery from your hard drive by clicking the option publish this in the Explorer sidebar. However, in Vista you loose the publishing option in Explorer. But never fear! Where there is good software, there is a good programmer that finds a way to accomplish the task.
After scouring the gallery forums I found my answer. In the Gallery plugin experimental repository there is a upgrade to the WindowsXP Publish (v1.07) module called Publish XP (v1.07.1). Who knows why they didn’t just call it Windows Publish? After upgrading to the latest version of the module:
- Go to Add Items => WindowsXP => and download the registry file specifically labeled for Vista.
- After the registry file is successfully added, go into Windows Photo
Gallery and select the pictures that you want to upload to gallery.
- Press print => Order prints. Amongst the online printers will be your online gallery.
