Converting all pictures uploaded to an archive to JPEG

If you receive pictures uploaded from the FotoWeb Desktop uploader for Windows and Mac you can turn on a feature that enforces client-side conversion of all pictures to JPEG before upload. Not only can this be cost-saving when uploading files over mobile networks, but it can also be an effective way of ensuring format consistency in your workflow.


  1. From the Tools menu (cogwheel icon), go to Site Configuration Archives.
  2. Select Edit for the relevant archive and open the Export and Import tab.
  3.  Turn on the Convert all images to JPEG before upload in FotoWeb Desktop toggle.
  4. You can set a compression quality (100 being lossless), and,  optionally, choose to restrict image size (uncompressed), file size (size after JPEG compression), or both.
