I have a client who wants a website. I normally use Thesis/Agility... I was thinking of using one of the Genisis-Studiopress themes for photography.

What I need help on is.... He want others to be able to upload their images to the site without having me manually do it each time they want to add images.

He found this site and likes it, however for SEO purposes and having full control over web property, I'd like to stay with Wordpress. 😉

I was thinking maybe using a Flickr plugin or searching for some other photo stream that would be easy to pull from... Then anyone can just log into the account and create galleries buckets or whatever the case may be.

Has anyone encountered something like this before and have any suggestions? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

Most gallery plugins will allow him to upload an entire folder as a gallery.  Is that what you mean?

He wants other photographers to be able to post their pictures themselves in the respective galleries, but wants it to be easy for them to do this.

Hi

(one solution) Create and share a Google account, then use :

PWA+PHP Picasa Web Albums for Wordpress
https://wordpress.org/plugins/pwaplusphp/

Hi

That should work for your need (I think)

I use this since 8 years. You can see a specific gallery on this test site page (last gallery)

All I added to the page is a shortcode : [pwaplusphp album="Camino_Frances_2013"]
