Send email – enter download base view URL:
Email is automatically generated containing links to FTP or HTTP accessible files that can be clicked on by the recipient. The .pul attachment when clicked on activates the Windows PhotoUplink Import, which then automatically imports the files into a new folder under My Pictures. This eliminates the need for large attachments of multiple files that may get rejected by mail servers and clog the recipient’s Inbox. PhotoUpLink supports both HTTP and FTP importing, with or without user authentication.
It is crucial that the URL you type in here is formed correctly for the outward facing server access. The FTP location maybe totally different from the eventual HTTP folder address that used to download the images, though in many cases, it could be the same. With this feature PhotoUpLink enables personal area publishing and workgroup area publishing; one-to-contacts, using your existing address books - as well as one-to-many publishing.
Use PhotoUpLink.net one click transfer
PhotoUpLink.net is introduced here for the first time in Windows PhotoUpLink, and will be supported in OS X and Pocket PC versions also. PhotoUplink.net is a public FTP server PhotoUpLink users can use to temporarily store images for collection by email recipients. This eliminates the need for hand assembling viewing URLs as described above. You will also be able to create galleries directly in future versions on PhotoUpLink.net.
When you select PhotoUpLink.net option, other options will be disabled, they are now calculated for you. However you can still pick the folder name and the output size of the images and video. If this is the first time you have chosen the PhotoUpLink.net option, you will also be asked to agree to the terms and conditions of use, which can be reviewed here.
