WLPG Zenphoto Plugin

Comments 1

Update 25.04.2014 The plugin doesn’t work anymore with the new versions of the ZenPhoto.


This is a plugin for ‘Windows Live Photo Gallery”:http://get.live.com/photogallery/overview/” application that permits publishing photos to a installation of Zenphoto gallery.

The code is based on example plugin that comes with Photo Gallery SDK.


Download the plugin bellow, install it, open Windows Live Photo Gallery, and then under “Publish” menu you can find “Zenphoto Plugin”.

Quick user guide

  1. Select at least one image and access the Zenphoto plugin under “Publish” menu.

  2. If you are using for the first time the Zenphoto plugin, then you have to create a session to Zenphoto installation. In the session name text box you can enter any string that you like but in Url text box you must enter the address of your gallery. Storing password is not recomended, but for testing connection to the gallery you must provide username and password before pressing “Test” button.

    Hi Olivian,

    Glad to have found someone that actually did development in Photo Gallery. I know this is very old software, but frankly its the only one that comes close to working similar to iPhoto on the Mac, in terms of tagging and rating.

    I was wondering if you could make a little plugin that takes your current search results, whatever they are, and copies all those photos to a selected folder of your choice.

    The main reason for this is to allow exporting of higher rated photos only to a iPhone via iTunes. iTunes on Windows is pretty rubbish, and only allows you to select whole folders to transfer… Hence I would like a subset of my better photos only to come across to the phone.

    I would be happy to pay you for this plugin. Please contact me for more details.
