I see a couple of plugins which let you bulk upload files to the media section. A site I'm working on has the photo gallery set up as content nodes, with the images being an 'upload' data type. There's other associated content with each one.
Is there anything that exists which would allow me to bulk upload several images, creating content nodes with the image filenames, and adding the image to the upload field while leaving everything else blank?
There was a starter kit a few years ago that did exactly that for 'albums'.
I can't recall which starter kit...but I've got a funny idea that it stopped working from about v4.5.
Can anyone else remember?
You could check out the Mass Uploader package - I haven't used it so I'm not sure if it'll do anything you need, but might be a nice starting point.
CMSImport Pro might also be an option for you. If you upload a csv/excel file or any other of the supported datasources with content and a reference to the file CMSmport Pro will import the files for you. Nice thing is that you can also import extra information and map that to the other content fields for descriptions, node names etc.

In any other case the Mass Uploader package should be the way to go.
Ah, forgot to mention CMS Import. I can confirm I've used it before to import a CSV file to both upload and media picker fields, and it worked like a charm!
Thanks guys, you may have actually solved another problem I'm having with that CMS import pro. Mass uploader seems like it might do the trick for this first issue.
Really appreciate the help!
I will try it,you konw i looking for it
