Upload images via FTP


Recommended Posts

I will soon have a large batch of images (600±) to upload, a result of six weeks of travel/shooting.  If I use the FTP method to upload the images, is it acceptable to compress them into one Zipped file? Or do I need to upload the individual JPEGs? Thanks.  Mark Weidman

I doubt that anything other than jpegs would even be recognised, but since you can upload folders anyway I can't see the point. I have FTPd folders containing almost 100 images.

 

I did not realise that was possible. Is it shorter time to upload folder than singles?  Thanks.

Using Filezilla, I just drag and drop the folder. I'm sure it's quicker than dragging files individually- one folder instead of 20 or 30 or whatever one at a time. They always end up together in Manage Images as well, which is handy.

Thank you Mark. Yes I use Filezilla too.  About mid November time I was trying to upload using FZ but for some unknown reason it did not want to co-operate so went back to web upload and it was working quite fast so have been on the method for a while. Will try FZ with my next upload using Drag and Drop of folder.

I also did not realize one can upload Folders; which is what I will do.  Thanks.

Not that it's been much of an advantage lately (I uploaded exactly 53 images in the whole of 2021🙁) but FTP really is fire-and-forget now. We do have fibre, but files haven't taken more than a few seconds each for a long time.

I faintly remember when an image could take north of 5 minutes to upload.

Would NEVER for any reason ZIP images for upload to any agency or library.  Just my opinion, but does not

sound like a good idea?
