Upload works only for 1 file per upload.
Upload should be easier to upload several files at once to a collection.

First step for could be selection of multiple files.

Further possible enhancement is a drag/drop zone to move serveral files in.

Aeva made a few UI mockups a while ago:

These show simple multi-file uploading and make a good start for anything wanting to implement this feature.

Maybe this should be rolled into #486? (Or the multi-upload part of that moved here?)

There is mediagoblin-html5-multi-upload plugin (see which works fine with mediagoblin 0.7.1 and should be included in the core and improved upon (like adding some feedback about upload status, like in ownCloud project or in mockups above).

Also, one should be able to specify collection where all pictures will be added in the same step (#795).

This is major usability issue - adding pictures one by one and manually adding them in collection is way too much to expect from users. If I need to upload more than 2-3 pictures (which is most of the time) I exclusively use FTP upload and home-made shell scripts which call gmg and psql to add media and push them in specified collection.

fyi the mediagoblin-html5-multi-upload plugin now supports adding the files to collections, but it relies on some recent changes to mediagoblin that aren't in v0.8.1.
