FTP (Incoming)


With a Standard or Pro account, you can FTP images directly into your PhotoShelter account by setting up a username and password. Standard accounts allow for only one FTP user to be active at a given moment, while Pro account holders have no limit. 


FTPing Images into Your Account 

1. Log in to your PhotoShelter account.

2. Click the Upload menu from the Navigation Bar and select Incoming FTP.


3. On the Incoming FTP page, click on the option to add a new incoming FTP user.


4. Create a username and password. Whatever you enter here is up to you. Remember to enable the username by checking the Enabled box.  


5. Target a specific gallery to have all images transferred to a single gallery. (Or, don't target any specific PhotoShelter destination, and we'll automatically replicate the structure in a newly created Incoming FTP collection.) We recommend choosing either a Collection or Gallery as your destination, not both. If you choose a Collection, a new gallery will automatically be generated within the collection. If you select a Gallery, the images will drop directly into the designated gallery. 


6. Click Add to create the user account. 


7. From your FTP client (e.g. Transmit, FileZilla, or Cyberduck), set the server to ftp.photoshelter.com.

8. Enter the username and password that you created on the Incoming FTP page of your PhotoShelter account. 


9. Select File > Upload in the FTP client navigation and select the images for upload. Alternatively, you can drag folders from your desktop directly to the FTP client upload window. 

Note:  If dragging a folder directly to your FTP client upload window, that folder will also appear within your destination folder on your PhotoShelter site. We generally recommend uploading individual images rather than folders to prevent complicated gallery nesting in your Images Browser. 


10. That's it! The transfer will begin automatically.
