FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a faster and more secure way of transferring files from PC to PC or PC to Server over the internet. It is best for large files like RAW, PSD, TIFF file-type images. To outsource your image for editing like clipping path, retouching, background removing works, FTP can be a life savior for you. Unfortunately, you have very few options when you want to transfer your files without dropping the quality.
You can send your large amount of files with large size through FTP using a third party application for post-processing and receive files from UK Clipping Path.
Importance of using FTP
Now, why will you use FTP? How is it better than the typical “HTTP file transferring” method? You can transfer files using different applications like “Dropbox,” “Google Drive,” “We Transfer,” and many more through the HTTP method. But one of the main disadvantages of using the HTTP method is unable to transfer larger files. Another one is the slow transferring rate, and you will also have a connection lost issue on top of that. So let’s know some of the advantages of using FTP which will make you realize the importance of FTP.
Advantages of File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
- It allows you to transfer multiple files. You can even transfer an entire directory also.
- It can save your transferring process even in connection lost period and can resume from where it stopped.
- You can add or delete files from the queue of Download/Upload.
- You can also do scheduled transfer if your FTP client supports it.
- “Size doesn’t matter” for FTP servers which is a big time-saving feature.
- It can transfer files faster than HTTP.
- It is supported by all hosts also.
How can you send files to us?
Let’s walk you through the process of using our FTP to send or receive files faster from us. You will be provided with a “Host Name,” “User ID,” and “Password” from UK Clipping Path to use our FTP server.
Now I will give you a short tutorial on setting up our FTP server on your computer and send/receive files through it.
To set up an FTP server, you will need third-party software. Today I will use “FileZilla.” FileZilla is totally free, which means you can use it for transferring your files free of cost. But, first, download the software. You can download it from the link below: https://filezilla-project.org/.
After downloading the software, open and install it on your computer. Now you need to set it up with UK Clipping Path’s FTP server to transfer your files to us. Let’s see how you can do that.
Step 1: After launching the software, you will see a window like below where the left side contains your PC’s file detail (Red Box) and on the right side will contain the other side where you will transfer your file or receive from (Green Box).
Step 2: Now configure FileZilla to connect to your website. Click on the button that is shown in the image with the red arrow pointing to it.
Step 3: After clicking on that button, you will open a window to see a button called new site. Press that, and few empty boxes will open for editing.
Step 4: You will write on the three boxes shown with a red arrow in the picture. In the first box, you will write the host address provided from UK Clipping Path. Then you will fill up the user name and also the password box. This information also will be provided by us.
Then hit the connect button, and you will be connected to our server shortly.
Step 5: After that, you will have the destination directory on the right side to upload/download your files.
Step 6: Now, upload your file from your PC (Left side of the software) to the destination directory, which is on the right side. All you need to do is go to your folder and select the files you want to transfer and right-click on the mouse and select the upload option, and your file will be uploaded.
To download after the post-processing, you need to select the files and right-click on the mouse and select the Download option to get the files.
