Upload Content

The quickest and easiest way to upload images to your PressFoto Portfolio is an FTP-client. Why do we choose FTP?

Because of its undeniable advantages:
  • Higher speed in comparison with HTTP (upload via browser);
  • Broken download resume option in case the connection is lost.

Connection settings

Login (Your username to log-in to your personal account at submit.pressfoto.ru)
Passworduse the password associated with your PressFoto Account

Any FTP-client will do. In case you don’t have one on your PC, install a free version:
  1. FileZilla http://filezilla.ru/get/ (Windows, Mac OS)
  2. Smart FTP http://www.smartftp.com/
or any other FTP Client comfortable working with

All FTP-clients function the same way. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to set up an FTP-client, for example, FileZilla:

  1. Choose “File” and then “Site Manager” in the menu at the top.
  2. Click “New site” in the popped up window.
  3. Type in the information to access the server:

    Host: ftp://submit.pressfoto.ru

    Login: your username to log-in to your personal account at submit.pressfoto.ru
    Password: the password you use to log-in to your personal account at submit.pressfoto.ru
    Click “Connect”
  4. Use the drag-n-drop function to drag the images and drop them in the popped up FTP-server window (sometimes images need to be selected from the FTP-client catalogue).
  5. The upload process takes time.
  6. Successfully uploaded files appear in the window.
  7. From this moment on your files are in the data processor which checks their sizes and other tech specs.
    After a while the images will appear in your personal account at http://submit.pressfoto.ru/, in your Portfolio under the Pending tab. You need to attach metadata and model releases (if necessary) to each photograph.
