FTP is now enabled and ready for uploading. Still use uploads.cutcaster.com as the host and use the email you have registered with Cutcaster to login and then enter your Cutcaster password. Now you can upload and transfer the files to our site from your favorite FTP client. Your files will be automatically processed and added to the submit page. We hope you like the changes and let us know your feedback below or if you have trouble by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our FTP upload option will be closed down for all contributors over the next two weeks to give our reviewers a much needed break and give our programmers a chance to move over all the files over to the new site. We are sorry for the inconvenience that this may cause and ask for your patience. The new upload system will include both of the ways to upload to Cutcaster that we have now as well as a new flash upload system that will make uploading to the site even easier. In the meantime, we ask any contributors that you submit all files that are in the edit and describe area before Sept. 1st in order for us to transfer over those files to the new database.
We fixed all of the issues with the new FTP server and connecting with Amazon. Some people noticed that there was a difference in the number of files that Cutcaster reported being accepted and in their portfolio versus what they were seeing on the si
te. That issue should also be fixed. The problem was a delay in the re-sizing of the uploaded images which we corrected.
We are making sure we support as many FTP clients and uploading services as possible. We recommend using Filezilla if you want an easy to use FTP client that works at Cutcaster.
We are aware Cyberduck FTP may not be working currently. That will be updated.
You can now use CoreFTP, CuteFTP and SmartFTP when uploading to Cutcaster. If you need more directions on uploading via these FTP clients please email us at email@example.com.
