FTP vs. Email

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a method of transfering files directly to another computer. Unlike email attachments which store and resend your files through 8 or 10 different computers, FTP is a direct connection between your computer and another computer. Email systems will also limit the size of your attachments (usually 10MB). FTP allows you to transfer files of any size, especially large files that are used in the printing industry! You may also use our On-Line Proofing System – Insite, please contact your Customer Service Representative.



Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 5.0 and above has built-in FTP capabilities. Simply, type in the proper ftp site address in your browser. For Worzalla it is ftp://ftp.worzalla.com
Once you have found the proper directory you may drag or cut/paste files into the directory displayed by your web browser.

If you do not have Explorer 5.0 or higher you need to run a program on your computer designed for FTP transfers, such as CoreFTP from IPSWITCH or Filezilla (There are a number of other FTP programs written for PCs also). Click here to go to the Core FTP Website.

Note: Using Firefox or other non-Microsoft browsers will allow you to “download” “get” files from a site but will not allow you to “upload”, “place” or “transfer” files to a site.
