Bulk image uploads can be done on the server side using importImages.php:


You just have to provide a .txt file for each image giving its image
description, i.e. 650 .txt files. Also the files have to be named
appropriately, preferably with a prefix to avoid conflicts with
existing file names.

If you have a zip file in that form, then you can file a shell request
in bugzilla.wikimedia.org for it to be imported.

Alternatively you can use Commonist or some other automated client.
