Never FTPd Before, Cyberduck to Photobucket?

Post by joyriders »

I just got a job that requires uploading photos from my computer to a photo hosting site (chosen by the guy I work for). I've been uploading photos one at a time, but he wanted to switch to FTP using Photobucket. I use a Mac, however, and the Photobucket software doesn't support Macs, I guess. My question is, can I use Cyberduck to upload photos to be stored on Photobucket, or am I SOL?

Should work!

I'm not familiar with Photobucket, but their FAQ page says they support ftp, so any ftp client including Cyberduck should do.
The FTP settings for use with other FTP programs are:
host address: ftp.photobucket.com
port: 21
username: your Photobucket username
password: your Photobucket password
directory: blank or default
You may need to use 'Passive Mode' if you are using a firewall.
More details here:

I believe Cyberduck uses passive mode by default so you should be fine.

try to read the FAQ
if that doesn't help, they have a very helpful customer service. I want to recommend these two sites discussfitness.com, jemsite.com.
hope you'll be well :) and happy
bye bye
