How do I import photos and videos?

You can import media into your media page and choose the camera, assign labels, and change the date and time.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you don't navigate away from the Import media page once you have started importing photos and videos. You can have different tabs or windows open, but don't go to a different page from the one you were importing media on.

Import media

Import photos and videos to deliver to your guests by clicking the cloud at the top of the Fotaflo media page.


The files you import need to be associated with a camera in Fotaflo, so the first thing you need to do is choose a camera in the dropdown if you have more than one camera ID.

If you only have one camera ID the selection will default to that camera.

Taken-at time

The files also need to have a date and time so there are two options:

  1. Set all uploads to the date and time above: You can choose a date/time so that you can use those filters to find the media on the media page after it has been imported by clicking the 'Set all uploads to the date and time above' box or choose the date and time if the image has no timestamp.
  2. You can also import the media using the time stamp embedded in the photo or video file by leaving the 'Set all uploads to the date and time above' unchecked. 


If you have these features enabled, you can choose to associate labels and guest labels when importing media. These are additional filters you can use to find the media on the media page. 

Select Files to Import

Click on the File button to choose the files you want to import or drag and drop the files into the box.

Video importing is available with the Lite, Standard and Plus plans

Progress Bar

There is a progress bar that will show you how many files have been imported and how many you have left. A green notification will pop up for every file that has been imported.

Do not navigate away from this page until the uploading is completed!
