Would be nice if it could automatically create nodes from files in a folder on the server. That way, you can set up a folder to ftp files into for various reasons, and then you could do an import similar to the current one, but it would do it automatically (when cron is run).

So you could define a folder for each gallery and that gallery will use that folder for the import. That way you could have folders : Sports, Travel, Family. Then you could create galleries called Sports, Travel, and Family. And in each gallery you set up, you tell it what folder to pull the images from.

This would open up alot of possibilities for auto creating galleries with no human effort! What do you think?

I like this feature, but I am afraid I won`t have such time to implement it in near future (month or two).

If I`ll have questions, I`ll ask, thanks!
