Folder Uploads/Thumbnail Viewer
« on: May 17, 2012, 11:53:20 PM »
Is there any way to add in the possibility to do batch uploading?

I would mainly use HFS for photo sharing between co-workers for projects and they will be sets of 100 or more photos, which would take way to long to select individuality. I am aware that I could just archive them with Winrar, but then you would not be able to download them individually, which brings me to my next question...

Is there any way to view a small thumbnail of an image, so that you could pick the photos that you want to download rather than downloading the entire set of them.

The only reason this is a big deal breaker for me is most of us operate on WWAN cards and depending on the cell service in the area, downloads can take a very long time, so it would be really nice to only need to download the files needed. I'd really like for this program to work, as we currently use FTP and the lack of being able to search can be a pain at times.

Thanks.

welcome Scheer!
none of these features come in the box with current version.
the thumbnails are available in some "themes".
making the batch uploading can require programming skills.

Thanks for the heads up on thumbnails.

Any chance that batch uploading will be integrated at some point, or is it a feature not often requested?

it would be useful for sure.
a feasible a workaround would be to make an automatic unzip on the server, with "event scripts".
I'm not sure what it takes for a cooler solution.

FHFS v2.0 has thumbnail generation and even a cool photo gallery mode... it also lets you upload up to 1000 files at once at once.

However it's not finished yet (and the website is down) and everything else it comes with might be more than you're looking for  :(
