Inbox Foto: alternative methods for photo upload – archives, FTP and e-mail

July 22,2013

The easiest way to add photos to Inbox Foto is to use the upload form on the page. However, there are other methods that can save time in some situations.

First of all, there is the possibility to add archives. After uploading only one archive with a list of images, images are automatically extracted to the selected album. This method is useful when You want to place a large number of new photographs. However, after uploading the archive, photos will not be available immediately – they will appear gradually as the extraction and processing of the contents of the archive is performed. If the number of photos in the archive is large, the processing can take a while.

Upload via FTP is one of the oldest and proven methods of file transfer that works even through the browser! Just open a browser, enter the address FTP://, enter your user name and password, and then all you need to do is to add any photos in unlimited quantities to the opened directory. Upon completion, it is obligatory to close the browser window with the added files (disconnect). In a few seconds images will be uploaded to Inbox Foto in a folder called «FTP», under the list of all the albums. After that You can transfer photos to Your album.

Photo upload is also possible via e-mail. Each album in Inbox Foto has a unique e-mail address. By sending a letter with an attached photo to this address, the image immediately gets uploaded into the selected album. E-mail address can be found in the album settings Inbox Foto.
