    ImageGallery Always Puts Images in Uploads Folder Link to this post

    I'm having all sorts of problems with uploading images with the ImageGallery module.

    Basically, it always makes a copy of the images and puts it in the Uploads folder, as well as whatever folder I wanted.

    And uses the image from the Uploads folder rather than the one I've uploaded to whatever sub folder in the assets folder.

    So I have hundreds of images in the Uploads folder, and there's the strong possibility that, being all in the same folder, files could overwrite each other.

    And then, if I try to upload a second image with the gallery, the uploader displays the thumbnails for the image in the sub folder and the image in the Uploads directory. So I'm always seeing twice the number of files that are actually there.

    I'm using SS 2.4.3 with the imagegallery 536 with the Uploadify module.

    Any idea of how I can fix this?

    Is it an uploadify problem or an ImageGallery problem?
