XP Web Photo Publishing Wizard - Hack for Vista

Microsoft claims to have discontinued the "Web Publishing Wizard" in Vista, but it turns out, they just renamed it. This wizard allows you to easily upload photos to photo gallery software on your web site. (I use Coppermine photo gallery).

Here's how to reclaim the joys of the Web Photo Publishing Wizard in Vista:

In the registry (or in the .reg file you downloaded from your photo gallery software), find:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Explorer\PublishingWizard\PublishingWizard\
Providers\NameOfYourGallery]

and change it to:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Explorer\PublishingWizard\
InternetPhotoPrinting\Providers\NameOfYourGallery]

To publish to your gallery, install the .reg file if you haven't already. Next, open the Windows Photo Gallery in Vista and select the photos you wish to upload. Under Print, choose Order Prints. Your gallery should show up as a "company" to send prints to. Walk through the rest of the wizard as per usual.

Make sure you have double slashes for every section: IE

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\PublishingWizard\\PublishingWizard\\
