I want to upload to Google Drive, all my image files that are within my gallery. At the moment I have to select the images one by one to do so.

Long pressing the images and the folders themselves does not open a context selection grid as it normally would.

I am using default gallery. I am also using the android 2.3.3 on an LG-P999-V21e.

Which Android version is your phone/tablet running? My Nexus 7 (on 4.1.2) does just that. Long press a folder in the Gallery app, select Drive as target, upload, done. – ce4 Nov 17 '12 at 11:31
What app are you using? Default Gallery? – DeLiK Nov 17 '12 at 16:45

Firstly, this is assuming you have ICS or higher (not sure if the Gallery works this way before then).

If you open an album, you should be able to long-press on a photo, and then at the top of the screen, where it says 1 selected, press that and you can say 'select all'.

Then upload them.

To be clear, this is via the gallery, not via the Drive app. Long-pressing does not work if you open the gallery via the Drive app. You need to select your photos then share it to a Drive folder. – Chords Jan 14 '14 at 20:12

Do not go to Google Drive directly.

  1. Gallery
  2. Select the files you want to Upload
  3. Share (icon like Branch) -NOW you choose Google drive and folder... Click OK and you are in Business

can't believe there's still no way to do this from within the Drive app itself smh – MichaelChirico Dec 29 '15 at 5:26
