Using the PhotoShelter Desktop Uploader

1. Open the PhotoShelter Uploader on your desktop and sign in using your PhotoShelter account.

2. Note the two sides of the Desktop Uploader. The left side represents your computer's file structure, whereas the right side displays the organization of your PhotoShelter account. Using the drop-down menu at the top of the left side, locate the images you'd like to upload.

3. Once your selected images appear in the left window pane of your Desktop Uploader, select all images you want uploaded to your account. If you are trying to upload a folder along with the images, please keep in mind that the folder will not transfer to your PhotoShelter account, only the images. You must first double-click on the folder in the left window pane to reveal the images before the transfer can take place.

4. In the right window pane, there should be a list of all collections and galleries in your account. Select the destination gallery for your images. It is also possible to add new collections and galleries here. When selecting your destination folder, keep in mind that images can only transfer to gallery folders, not collection folders.
