Now since we’re entering the world of 4G (Fourth Generation) and 5G (Fifth Generation) hence sharing will be speedy and on the go whether be it content or file sharing.

With a speedy internet the need arises for a medium or tool or platform through which sharing of files becomes easy, faster, error free and accommodative with huge space to store/share files with ease.

For the purpose of getting high resolution and heavy photos edited through us, we have various methods and ways through which we can share files with each other. We can transfer files via wetranfer.com (upto 2 gb free per transfer) or Dropbox (2 gb of free space) or Google drive (15 gb of free space) or one drive (25 gb of free space). Alternately, a dedicated ftp account (unlimited space) can also be created upon your request wherein you can upload/download files directly to/from our server.

We’ll talk about file sharing in this blog specifically about ftp (file transfer protocol) method in detail.

Basically, through ftp arrangement, we provide space (storage space with uploading and downloading facility) to our customers. If you’re an existing image editing customer with us then you get provision to use unlimited file storage space free of cost for processing image editing orders only but if you want storage space for personal or other specified/agreeable business use then whether you’re our existing or non existing client in either case ftp storage space will be chargeable based on the space and its time requirement. For making inquiry on buying ftp storage space, please consult our business executive by writing us at: info@the-photo-editing-services.com, rest our ftp storage space is competitive and cost effective in comparison to other online file transfer mediums.

How to access and use our ftp server to upload/download/store files?

We have tried to describe it in 5 simple steps as mentioned below:

Step 1: Download Filezilla Client (The free FTP solution) Download ftp client named filezilla from the given link: https://filezilla-project.org/download.php for windows (64bit). For windows (32 bit), download filezilla from the given link: https://filezilla-project.org/download.php?platform=win32 Note: If you’re using mac then go to“Show additional download options” and download filezilla for mac.

Step 2: Import .xml file to access our ftp server. After downloading filezilla client, Go to“File”menu and click on‘Import’. Further, you’ll be given an .xml file from our side giving it a name of a project code say 038 or any number/text. Now import the .xml file that we have given to you. Click“OK”on the next window that pops up soon after you import .xml file, then again on the following dialogue box message click‘ok’.

Step 3: How to connect to remote site/our ftp server location. Now ftp site will be configured with the same name that of the .xml file. For example, if .xml filename is 038 then ftp site can be seen with the same name i.e. 038. FTP site say“038”can be connected through site manager. First Click on the site manager which is the first symbol below menu bar, and then click FTP site name to connect to ftp server/remote site.

Step 4: How to upload/download file from local to remote site and vice versa. Now, after step 3, you should be connected to remote site. Left Panel is local site and right panel is remote site. Towards left hand side panel, add local path in the dialogue box right next to “Local Site” or surf through the folders in order to open the source folder you wish to open from your local machine. In the same fashion, go to the destination folder on the right hand side pane by surfing through the folders in it. After you’ve successfully accessed desired local and remote site ftp location, you can upload files from left pane (local site) to right pane(remote site)and can download files from right pane(remote site) to left pane(local site)by simply dragging and dropping files from and to the desired location. You can do all on a right click.

Step 5: How to Create Directory/Folder and Sub Directories/Sub Folders over local/remote site. Right click on the top folder and create new folders/directories. You can rename or delete folder created and do other stuff on a right click. Double click on the folder created and then Right click on the top folder again to create new sub folders/sub directories in the same manner as you did while creating main directory.
