Click on image to enlarge.

To add more photos, simply click on "Choose More Photos" button once you are out of the uploading screen. Note that photos are not uploaded to Flytographer at this point; they are just selected in the "holding pen" awaiting upload (see Step 4).

For files that have an error, they will appear as "Failed Photos" in a list with the reasons for the error. Please make adjustments to original file and re-upload. Note that failed photos must be removed BEFORE uploading new photos - click on "Remove Failed Photos" button to remove them and go back to uploader.

Step 4: Uploading Photos

Click on image to enlarge.

When you have selected your files, click "Upload Photos."


Your files will start uploading. Now is a good time to take a little coffee break or play with the cat.


When the the green bar is full, your upload is complete. Uploaded photos will appear behind the uploader window.

Important note: If the uploader window closes but you cannot see your photos, please wait 10-15 minutes and then refresh the page before attempting to upload again. Sometimes our system just needs a bit of extra time to update!


After the uploader window closes and you can see your photos (see important note above if you cannot), you are now able to upload more photos or remove the ones you no longer wish to submit.


If you wish to remove photos from the gallery, hover over the photo and click on the little blue "X" in the bottom right-hand corner. 


All deleted photos will appear greyed out in your view, but neither the concierge nor the customer will see them on their end. If you decide that, in fact, you want to keep that photo after all, simply click back on the little "X" to put it back in the gallery; no need to re-upload it.

Step 5: Complete

Final step: click on "Finish and Submit Photos." A little pop-up window will appear for you to leave a nice personal note for your customers and voilà! You are done.
