->> Having an FTP program is the easiest solution. And I second Rick's suggestion of Smart FTP.

If you have a PhotoShelter account you can export a gallery via FTP directly through the site.

->> I would guess it depends on the agency, but I'm sure some of them will require you to FTP your images. I use a shareware program called Transmit that I found on Apple's website. If you're a PC guy I'm sure there's shareware or freeware programs available also, but I couldn't tell you which ones.

->> Yes you do.

Smart FTP is good. Transmit is better. PhotoMechanic has a very good one built in. I use the FTP program in PhotoMechanic for some clients and I use Transmit for others, it just depends on how the client's site is organized.

->> I'm 99% sure that there will come a time when you will need to know how to FTP an image. It just makes sense in my opinion to go ahead and learn how to now, instead of trying to figure it out under the pressure of a deadline.

For Mac:
The best:
http://www.panic.com/transmit/
Free:
http://cyberduck.ch/

For PC:
I like:
http://www.ipswitch.com/products/file-transfer.asp
Free: Just search Google for "free windows ftp client" and you'll get plenty of choices.

As mentioned above Photo Mechanic for both Windows and Mac has a built in FTP client if you are already using it to edit you images.

->> In Windows, I just use Windows Explorer. Works almost like moving files on your computer, but slower.

In the Windows Explorer "Address" line, just type ftp://www . whateverthenameofyoursiteis . com (change that to your ftp site, without the spaces). If it requires a login, it will prompt you for it.

I haven't used an actual FTP program in years.

->> Both Windows and Mac have FTP built-in: you just need to get your hands dirty with the command-line.

Windows: go to Run in your Start menu, and type "cmd" to get the old MS-DOS style command line window. Using the command line, move to the directory you want to transfer files from/to and type "ftp (server hostname here)" to connect to the server. Typing "?" at the ftp prompt will get you a list of commands.

Mac: Go to Applications - Utilities and fire up the Terminal app. Using the command line, move to the directory you want to transfer files to/from. Type "ftp (server hostname here)" to connect to the server. Typing "?" at the ftp prompt will get you a list of commands.

Spending 10 minutes with Google will probably get you all the info you need to know on the basics with these apps.

Yes, they're not as nice as the other programs listed above - *but*, they're included in your OS and are certainly good in a pinch.

->> I use FTP Voyager, from Rhino Software (www.RhinoSoft.com). It's not free, but I've used a lot of the free ftp software packages, and this one is worth the money. It costs about $40. Considering how often I ftp files, it's worth it to me to pay for something that works best for me.

->> ok, so i used Internet Explorer to transmit the files. I dragged them into the folder and it said "copying". Does that mean they transmitted once it was finished.
