I believe Wordpress cant handle your 'gazillion' of pics... it would
be too tedious to upload them. I am anyways very unhappy with the
media uploader. And how can u put up galleries in a blog. Your viewers
would love to see a separate dedicated page for your gallery. You can
give more importance to the ability to search and organise them. Put
in captions etc.

And you can use some plugin to show some of your pics on your blog
too... Hope I convinced you...
