There are dozens of ways to transfer and access files through a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) system. FileZilla is just one of the many free options that people use for this purpose. Due to its free and easy-to-use nature, many people have opted to stick to it when transferring or accessing files of any kind on the cloud. Therefore, if you’re uploading photos or documents from the FTP server, the process would be as simple as downloading FileZilla and installing it on your computer before connecting to the FTP server. Nevertheless, if this sounds like rocket science, then this simple-to-follow Filezilla tutorial will get you started easily.
This tutorial will show you how to transfer or upload and download photos with Clipping Path India
Downloading and installing the program
The first thing you should do is to access FileZilla from this open-source platform called filezilla-project.org. Since we are interested in uploading images to clipping path India, we will choose the option, which says ‘’Download FileZilla Client’’.
That link will let you choose the operating system, which you are running on your PC.
FileZilla is available for Mac OS X, Windows, Linux etc. So, choose the appropriate version of the software to run.
Once the software has been downloaded, you need to install it the same way you do with other programs on your computer and open it.
At this point, the first thing you should do is to point it to the CPI FTP server. But for this process to go through successfully, you will need your CPI FTP server address, which can be setup on the FTP Manager section.
To get your FTP account credentials all you need to login to your account and enable your FTP account from the “account setting section”. Click on the “Enable FTP account” and choose your password.
Next, you’re going to have your FTP username and password ready for this process. The Host name should be something like the bellow image.
Note: You can change your password any time by clicking on “Reset Password”.
How to connect to a server
If you look right below the toolbar, you will see fields for entering your Host, user name, password, and Port. This information is needed when connecting to the server.
You don’t need to worry about entering the Port address. This should be left blank because it is standard across all servers. Moreover, FileZilla will automatically enter Port details when left blank.
Start the connection process through Quick Connect
The connection process is initiated when you click the Quickconnect button. The status of this connection will be displayed on the top pane of your computer.
If it is successful, the file system of the server will be listed on the right pane.
How to use your Site Manager
Quickconnect settings will disappear the moment you restart FileZilla. Therefore, if you want to save time by accessing the server in a quick manner, you should save those details in the Site Manager. So this step only requires you to click on the File menu on the top left side of the program. Then choose ‘’Copy Current to Site Manager’’.
When you finish this process, it will automatically open the user interface of the Site Manager together with the server details which you had initially put into the relevant fields. At this point, you should give it a unique entry name like CPI FTP.
Alternatively, you can add these details by clicking the “New Site” button and filling in your host name, user and password and save under the name CPI FTP. The logon type should remain as ‘’Normal’’.
This will give you an easy time when accessing the server listed under the name CPI FTP. Just select the Site Manager and connect to CPI FTP.
Download or upload your images with Clipping Path India
Steps for Uploading images
The Local site section of FileZilla lets you access the photo files on your computer’s hard drive. You can do this by navigating the let pane so that you can locate the files, which you want to upload to the server.
The same thing can be done on the Remote site section. Just right-click your mouse to create a directory where you will save your photo files.
Once the directory is created, double click on it to upload photos into this directory. If you need to go back, double click on the directory icon ends with two dots located on the top left side.
Copying images to Clipping Path India’s servers
Just drag the files, which you have selected on the left panel to the right panel – onto the directory, which you want them in or right click and click on “Upload”.
While you do this, the bottom panel will show the files queued up for transfer.
When the copying is finished, the files will automatically appear in the CPI FTP server.
Downloading images after they have been edited
This process works in reverse. You first need to get the files on the CPI FTP server so that you can transfer them back to your Local site. Once you find them, just drag from the right to the left panel or right click and choose “Download”.
The images will be queued for transfer and when finished, you can track their status on the bottom panel.
