Improve section Synchronize Your Files

This describe what to do with phTagr after installing and setup phTagr successfully. This page is also good for newcomers, demo users and others who want to know more about the great media gallery phTagr! Login to your phTagr account and enjoy!

Upload Files

So, you have an account of a new gallery. What to do? Of cause get some pictures or videos on the screen. phTagr can read from

  • Local file system or
  • Upload files using the web browser or
  • WebDav as online storrage/network drive

To read local files your account must be prepared. See ReadLocalFiles for details.

For using the more advance feature of WebDav please read its own section WebDav.

To upload via the web browser you go to My Files and than Upload.

If you want to upload several pictures at once, you can zip these to an archive and upload the archive. By selecting Extract ZIP archive all the content will be extraced at your current folder and the zip file will be deleted. Deselecting Extract ZIP archive the zip archive is only uploaded, but not extracted.

If you cant upload (any more) please check your UserQuota.

phTagr converts your videos into flash videos automatically! If you want to create and upload flash videos please see CreateFlashVideo.

Create Folder

To get some order of your files, you can create also folders on your account. At the bottom select create folder which ask you for the folder name.

Import Files

After getting some files to your phTagr account you have to import the files - kind of activation.

  • Goto My Files and browse to the specific location you want to import the media
  • Select the folder or single files to import and click Import. A summarize shows if your import was successful.
  • Now go to My Images and see your new imported images.

Change Meta Data

Images without some tags and categories are boring! Organize quick and easy your media by giving them some MetaData!

  • By edit a single image click on Tags are separated by comma. Eg. 'red flower' is treated as single tag, whereas 'red, flower' is handled as tag 'red' and tag 'flower'
  • To edit multiple images select each image and add tags or categories at the bottom form
    • To delete a tag or category add a minus sign in front of the tag. Eg. '-flower' means that you delete the tag 'flower'.
    • To rename a wrong tag type '-flowr, flower' to the form.

Note: Tags are case sensitive. Once you typed a tag with in a specific case this style counts. If you first type 'floWer' the case remains even if you type 'Flower' later.

Synchronize Your Files

phTagr does not synchronize the MetaData immediately (otherwise each MetaData change will delay the page response). But dont panic! phTagr synchronize the media before a download of the original file. So you never loose your MetaData :-)

If you want to synchronize all media at one you have to start the synchronization manually. To synchronize all files goto My Files and than click on Synchronize. And to synchronize a single image select to synchronize the meta data.

If you think that was easy continue with AccessControl.
