Uploading to dotPhoto

We have recently changed our uploading process to enable drop-and-drag and to make uploading more reliable.  However, we may be “hiding our light under a bushel.”  Here are a few tips to help explain the new process:  “Uploading” is called, through the initial stages of the process, “Add.”  You’ll see “Add” in the upper left corner of the screen: 

  • Click on the arrows next to “Add” to access the “Add photos” or “Add videos” function.  (“Add videos” is only available if you are a Pictavision or Video subscriber.

  • Click on the “Organize” arrow to access the “Create new album” function. 


You’ll be asked to click on an “Add your new photos” button, and, if this is your first time uploading, dotPhoto will attempt to install the upload tool.  At this point, Microsoft Windows requires that you approve the new tool.  Go toward the top of the screen, click on the yellow line, and follow the instructions to install the DPimageUploader tool.


Once you’re installed the upload tool, follow these three steps:

  1. Find the directory where your photos are stored.

  2. Choose the photos you want by selecting all or by dragging the ones you want to the lower section.

  3. Click on the “Upload” button.
