We didn't have a whole lot of pictures on the old forum, and I can pretty much tell who did what, since it's mostly artwork, or people named their pictures with their user name. In that case, is there a way to manually add images to the Gallery one by one? I can see there's a file structure to follow, so that wouldn't be a problem for me. But I'd like to get the files to show on the the forum, and I'm not sure how to do that. Is there a query I could run for each photo or similar?

Add to that, I'm not entirely sure what Gallery modification we had prior to taking over our forum. I thought it was Photopost, but I keep seeing mentions here and there in the templates for vBGallery. I'm still inclined to think it was an old version of Photopost.

There is no upload as another user option in the lite version, but that option exists with the pro version, though I'm not quite sure what you mean by getting files to show on the forum. Are you looking to make manual entries into the photoplog_fileuploads table? If so, the following is an example of what information is stored in that table:

You might want to check with either Sniper (http://www.photoplog.com/forum/member.php?u=1546) or begore (http://www.photoplog.com/forum/member.php?u=848) to see if their import scripts are available.
