Ok...what I would really like...and what would really help me to upload shots more efficiently is a facility that would allow me to 'pre-upload' shots to the airliners.net server by FTP in batch mode. I could then, at a later time, use the regular upload pages but, rather than browsing for the shot on my local machine, be able to specify shots previously uploaded to an FTP holding area (ideally one such area per photographer) allowing me to enter the details for each shot without waiting for each shot to upload.
For photographers with slower connections this would be really useful...so how about it Johan?

I agree with Craigy. As nice an idea as it is, some restrictions would need to be in place if it were to be implemented, mainly the number of images that can be uploaded at any one time, say 10 maximum, If im not wrong, most images that ppl upload to here are in the vicinity of 150-200k in size each so you'd be uploading around 1.5-2 Mb of images in one go, on a 33.6 modem like Im on (unfortunately) this will take 10-15 mins to upload. No one person should be allowed to have more than 10 images in this ftp server at one time or they are limited to x number of images per day to control the bandwith.
Its a nice idea but at the moment it isnt a priority, the upload que is more important at the moment, leave Johan to work that one out first then move onto something else, maybe this idea.
