FTP Instructions


Note: UPLOAD HIGHEST QUALITY JPEGS ONLY. Images should open to 24MB, or more, in a graphics application, such as Photoshop. As of February 22, 2010, due to bandwidth limitations, we no longer can support uploading of RAW or TIFF files. We have also changed our activation time period for new submissions to one month in lieu of weekly.

Certain browsers on certain operating systems can not be used to upload files using the instructions below. Results may vary for different combinations of operating systems and browsers. We suggest you try uploading to determine if your browser is compatible with uploading

We prefer you put your keywording, full Name, email address and mailing address information in the IPTC headers (File Info). Painet exports all IPTC fields. If you FTP the images be sure to include your full name and email address in one of the IPTC data fields. If you want to avoid our having to email you for your mailing address when you have a sale, include your mailing address in one of the IPTC fields. An alternative is to email us an Excel spreadsheet or Word Document. Note: If you put your photographers code (including the underscore) in front of your image filenames, there is no need to include your contact information in the IPTC metadata. We would already have your contact information on file. If you do NOT use your code in front of your image names, the contact information must be supplied in the IPTC area. Email painet@gondtc.com to obtain your unique code. Type 'request code' in the subject field of the email to insure your code request gets to us.

=================

To UPLOAD your file to the Painet FTP site using your Browser:

1) Copy and paste the following in the Location bar of your browser:

ftp://ftp.painetworks.com/incoming/

2) Drag the file you wish to upload to the Browser window. Note: If you browser window covers your whole screen, click the reduce window button in Windows, or drag the bottom right corner in Mac OS, to allow you to drag files into the window.

3) If you do not have drag-and-drop features, go to File on the Main Menu Bar and select Upload File. Then locate the file you wish to upload and click 'Open'.

4) If an upload attempt is unsuccessful, change the name of the file being uploaded and try again. Our server does not allow an overwrite to an existing file.

5) When uploading is complete, the image file will DISAPPEAR from the directory. This is normal as access to the image is denied after uploading.

If you are not allowed to Upload File using Internet Explorer, then you will need to use Netscape or download the free FTP software (see below)

=================

To UPLOAD a file to the Painet FTP (File Transfer Protocol) site using FTP software such as FETCH for the Macintosh.

1) Enter the following, exactly as shown, in the Connection window:

Password: (leave blank)
Directory: incoming

Note: If using Fetch 4.0.1 or later, click on the small arrow at the bottom left to expand the Fetch window. Then type 'incoming' in the Initial Directory field. Also, it is better to type into the fields rather than copying and pasting the login information. This will avoid copying any hidden html characters.

2) Use the 'Binary' or 'Automatic' formats for upload.

3) Then upload as necessary. Note: You will get an error message if you try to upload a folder of images. You may select multiple image files and drag them into the Incoming Directory/Folder.

4) If an upload attempt is unsuccessful (interrupted), change the name of the file being uploaded (when the interruption occurred) and try again. Our server does not allow an overwrite to an existing file, even if it is only partially uploaded.
