FTP on Ingest
« on: May 23, 2019, 02:28:15 AM »
Long time user of Photo Mechanic, absolutely love the app.

It would be really great if there was a feature where you could tell Photo Mechanic to automatically FTP every image as it is ingested.

I found myself in a situation where I needed to send images to an editor and I wanted to set up Photo Mechanic to ingest only the locked images on the camera and only the JPGs and they automatically send them out to an FTP.

I think as a feature it would be incredibly useful.

You could probably get that working right now with an FTP app that watches a folder for newly-arriving images and then uploads them.  There are likely even free FTP apps that will do this.

This should do it - just import locked images into the watch folder.

If your camera supports it, FTP'ing directly from the camera might make things even faster.
