FTP is our preferred method of transferring files because of its ability to
accommodate large file transfers. The FTP protocol is also not constrained by
some mail servers' limit on attachment sizes.
North Coast Photo provides an anonymous upload ftp service. That means
after uploading your pictures, only North Coast Photo can access your files.
Here's some instructions on how to use North Coast Photographic Service's FTP server:
- Using your favorite FTP Client
- Using Windows Explorer
After your files have been uploaded, don't forget to give us a call at (760) 931-6809 to verify that we have received your order. Be ready
to provide us with the following information:
- Your name
- Your phone number
- The names of your files
- The type(s) of output
- The number of pages to be printed
- Copies of each
- Date & Time needed
- Delivery / Pickup information
- Payment information
Using Your Favorite FTP Client
Don't have a favorite ftp client? Many are available; check download.com [mac / windows]
or TUCOWS [mac / windows].
Start up your FTP client, and use the following values to access our
host name: ftp.northcoastphoto.com
user name: anonymous
password: <enter your email address>
After logging into our FTP server, you will be able to upload your image
files. However, you should note, due to security purposes, you will not be
able to see your files after they are uploaded. Again, don't forget to
phone (760)931-6809 to verify your order.
Using Windows Explorer
If you are using the Microsoft Windows platform, the built-in Explorer
already supports FTP.

- In the Address bar, type: ftp://ftp.northcoastphoto.com.
- By default, Windows Explorer uses anonymous login when given an FTP
URL, so now you are ready to 'drag & drop' your image files on to
the North Coast Photo FTP server.
