UploadWizard is an extension that allows a user to upload multiple files with a step-by-step JavaScript wizard. See also:Upload Wizard description page on Wikimedia Commons.

Currently it has this little problem:

Right now UploadWizard supports individual photo URLs and photoset URLs. It
would be good to add support for photostream URLs, group URLs, etc. Each of
these use a different API method in Flickr, so we would need to customize thecode for each.
See this bug report for more information:
