"WireInput: You have reached PHP’s “max_input_vars” setting of 1000 — please increase it."  

PHP was configured "by default".  When increasing this value - than can upload more images.

i came across the same problem i need to upload ~1000 images and i got same error, every image has tag, how can this be resolved? does this count as necro bumping if it wasnt been resolved ?

As you may already know, it can be changed in your hosting provider account.

Possible solution:
FTP Files to Page Add files/images from a folder to a selected page.

Something that could be useful - to put in the admin.php file (source: Adrian):

$this->addHookBefore('InputfieldFile::render', function($event) {
    $inputfield = $event->object;
    if($field = $inputfield->hasField) {
        if(!is_object($field)) return;
        $p = $event->object->hasPage;
        $inputfield->label .= ' (' . $p->{$field->name}->count() . ')';
