Maybe this post is helpful for you: mikejolley.com/2012/12/… As you can see, some custom work needs to be done. – swissspidy May 22 '13 at 7:32

You can use WP Multi File Uploader plugin that uses AJAX. Havent tried it by myself yet but it should solve your problem.

can I do this without using a plugin rather using only wordpress functions and included libraries? – Md Toufiqul Islam May 21 '13 at 10:55
Not what I know of but you could use this plugin to upload all your pictures and then disable it. And I think there is a way to upload thru FTP and force wordpress to recognize the files. But I suggest you to use a plugin, thats how I would do it. link @Md Toufiqul Islam – M3o May 21 '13 at 11:01
