Take and upload photos to your PC on the fly

You can upload photos to your PC from anywhere in the world with TagAndSend. 

This is a very useful feature if you need to scan documents from a remote location to your desktop computer at work, at home or anywhere else. No need for a huge copier restricted to one location.

Select the "Upload photos to PC" option and then tap the "Upload new snapshots" button and you can take pictures which will simultaneously be uploaded to your PC. Create new folders and upload to them or upload to already existing folders on your PC.

Upload pictures from your camera roll to your PC

Select the "Upload photos to PC" option and tap the "Upload photos from camera roll" button.  Create new folders and upload to them or upload to already existing folders on your PC.

This feature of TagAndSend is useful for quickly backing up new photos as you take them or backing up photos saved on your camera roll to your desktop computer.

TagAndSend uses FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to upload photos to your computer, therefore you will need to set up an FTP server on your computer to use this feature. It is really easy to do. A good, free choice of FTP server is Filezilla server, which you can download from here. When using TagAndSend from outside your home or company network, it is recommended to set your Filezilla server (or any other FTP server you choose) to passive mode, choose a range of ports, and then forward the chosen range of ports through each of your network router and your computer firewall. This is known as port forwarding because the ports used by FTP are forwarded through your network router and computer firewall. Port forwarding forwards the incoming data connection through your network router and computer firewall and allows TagAndSend to scan to your computer.

 

Very clear instructions to configure your network router and your computer firewall for port forwarding can be found here. A very good explanation of why FTP data transfer works better in passive mode with firewalls can be found here.  You may also need to consult your network router manual (which can usually be found online as well) for instructions specific to your brand of network router.
