I’m upload some photos via FTP and put ZIP -file with MR to folder /model_releases As manual said. Huh, I’ve got ‘Processing Error’ and note:

Release Forms must be a zip containing a ’.pdf’, ’.jpg’ or ’.png’, got a zip containing ’.zip’

Got a zip containing ’.zip’... Something interesting.

Hi luissantos84,

If I understand you correctly, each model will need a model release form when uploaded to ensure procedures are met. We’re also aiming on making some documentation and/or screencast to make the model release process a bit easier to understand for everyone. We’ll post more about that when it’s available. :)

GOD ! I am not saying that of course every person need a MR :)

the thing is:

- uploading a batch and that batch have pictures that have from 1 person to 3 persons! - should I upload like a batch with only pictures that have 2 persons! - and then the batch with 3 persons?

are you understanding?

No, you don’t need to split things up that much. If you’ve got a photo shoot with 3 people, but not every photo has all 3 people, you can still just upload the shoot and the model releases in one batch.

You should put the model releases straight in the bulk_import/photos/model_releases folder without zipping them up first.

Hello fotografkagabriela let me see if I can help :)

Here are the steps to follow when uploading via FTP
(review detailed directions here)
After you have logged in, head on over to the bulk_import>photos folder. Now this is where you will place your sweet photos. If some of your photos require a model release, then simply add all that apply to the bulk_import>photos>model_releases folder.

Please note, model releases should NOT be zipped when using the FTP process.

Now if I have completely missed the problem you are having, please let me know.
