What is ftp & how do I use it?

I've been told that I can load pics to photobucket using ftp and drag and drop- what is this and how does it work?

ftp stands for "File Transfer Protocol" It is a setting used by your e-mail provider to set the way your computer communicates with other systems, e-mails and computers on the internet.

Basically it's a way to upload files to the web - usually some web space you may have with your ISP, or to a website. All websites are uploaded to servers using ftp (or a variant of).

Most ftp programmes these days are really easy to use and are, as you say. drag and drop. You'll need the server details, username, password etc. to be able to upload.

Lots of free software about. Try click here or there's lots of others out thre

Thank-you I'm uploading as I type!
