How to upload from mobile devices 

Using the FotoWare Mobile app you can upload photos and videos from your smartphone or tablet. FotoWare Mobile is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play store.

Most mobile devices can store pictures from an SD card in their camera roll using an SD card adapter, in which case you can transfer pictures and video taken with your DSLR to the mobile device and then upload them to FotoWeb using either a WiFi or a mobile network connection (be wary of data costs).

Typically when you upload files to an archive you are required to fill out certain metadata fields in the process to make it possible to find and retrieve the assets later. If some of the fields are mandatory, you cannot upload files unless those required fields are filled in.

Furthermore, alerts, or search agents, can be configured on the server to notify users when new files come in that match certain criteria. The system can be configured in such a way that if you tag the file with a certain keyword,  the user on the receiving end is notified when the file arrives.

For information on how to select and upload files when using FotoWeb for iPhone or Android devices, see Uploading files from an iPhone or Android device.
