FTP software is helpful when you want to upload your photos to a web server. The photo you posted, is a bit small, and it would be better to try for about 600 pixels high. Use the FTP software to upload to your server, then navigate to the photo in your web browser, then copy the URL at that point, and that's what you post here with the Image command below this box.

I use WS_FTP Pro, but there are dozens of good FTP programs. Also, many servers/hosts will have a File Manager built into the control panel that you can use for uploads. I also use Explorer Plus which is a Windows Explorer substitute, but it has FTP built into it so you can treat your server just like another hard drive.



Cheers,
rfs

Uh, before going and giving you a lot of free advice, lemme ask you to step back and clarify a couple of points, first:

(a) What is it you're trying to speed up?

(b) Are you sure the process you want to speed up is using FTP to transfer files?

FTP is a very specific application that is NOT used for things like uploading individual images to a portfolio here on GG or that Other Model Place, or uploading files for printing to some laboratories that are specifically set up for it. So, is FTP what you're really needing?

Both of the previous messages assume you're using a Windows operating system machine (whether it's a PC or a Mac that's running Windows emulation software... for this purpose it's all the same).

So, if you'll answer the two questions above, and tell us what kind of computer you're using, and which operating system it has running, maybe then we'll be able to help you with some answers to your specific need.

Thanks for everything. Just trying to get images from one place to another as fast as I can.ie... web site and to my lab.
Also, I did want to thank you for catching a weird spot on a composite I posted the other day. I don't know how I missed it. I will post It again so you remember.
Robert
PS I fixed it on my computer

If you want to access the computer with the images remotely, to download them via FTP, you'll need an FTP server. I use one called Savant - offers all the capability I need, and is free.

If you want to send the files from your system to another, you'll need an FTP client. There are a lot of decent ones; I use WS_FTP Light - also free. I found it a little peculiar to set up to access my FTP server, but not terribly difficult.

Good luck.
