    What to use for images for WordPress?
    So many options. I'm overwhelmed.

    I'm setting up a blog that is very photo-centric. I'm hoping that the photos will get indexed and that will become one of the main traffic providers. But there are SO many different ways to do it.

    I guess if I'm just adding one or two photos to the post, WP's built in "add an image" seems to do the trick. But I'm looking to add many photos, say in the 5-15 per post range. And some posts, maybe even a couple hundred.

    I've tried NextGEN gallery,
    Pros: The location URL to the photos are from my site
    Con: Very cumbersome to use - first having to create a gallery, then upload, then add to post.
    I tried Picasa Image Express
    Pro: REALLY easy to add photos to article and gallery mode. I really loved it until I realized this con...
    Con: The location URL of the photo does not include my domain. It looks to the SE that the image is someone else's. Therefore no SEO credit for me

    Gawd, I know I'm not the first to have to go through this. Anyone have any help??

    Moved to blogging forum. I use Gallery2 to manage my images and then use their rss to pull them into posts.

    Hey Lox! I was hoping you'd respond. I figured YOU'VE been through this.

    That sounds like the Picasa Express solution. Do the images have your blog's URL or Gallery2 URL? Can you show me an example?

    Gallery2 url. You would have to organize the images by album to get the right rss into a post, but you can't edit into the rss. But you can use the gallery to actually have your info in the image title and description I guess.

    http://www.cool-car-photos.com/ has some, but I haven't played with it too much yet. It's on the list of things to do
