Relying on a HTML5 technology, the Upload interface is accessible in Production by a link located in Phraseanet menu bar.
Upload is an interface dedicated to media addition towards collections on which users have adding rights.
For browsers that don’t have the full HTML5 support, a display mode relying on Adobe plug-in FlashPlayer is available.
Click on the Use the Flash uploader item in bottom right menu list.
This mode is a downgraded mode. It does not allow to access all the features developed with HTML5 technologies.
Click on the Upload link in the Phraseanet menu bar to prime the Upload interface in an overlay window.
The selected files appear in the left side of the Upload interface (4).
In the Upload interface thumbnails are generated by the browser itself. In some conditions these thumbnails may not be displayed (large files, unsupported rendering by the browser... etc.). Consider that it’s not a problem of the application, just a technical limitation.
From Phraseanet 4.0.8 it is possible to upload file by URL:
All the media are transferred in the selected collection. A progress bars indicate the state of the transfer in the Transmitted files section (5).
After transfer, media are viewable in Production and Classic interfaces.
Other addition possibilities exist, like using a FTP directory. It consists in importing the files contained in a directory using an archiving task.
During import procedure, some files can be placed in Quarantine: they are notified by a red colour label and notifications can be sent by the system.
By default, files that are already in the destination base are quarantined (achieved by Universally Unique Identifier checking).
Other criteria to quarantine files can be set by administrators (file format, color space, dimensions...*etc*.).
For more information about the setting of additional criteria for quarantine, consult the dedicated paragraph at Custom services on this page.
Click on the Quarantine tab of the Upload window to display it contents.
For each quarantined media, three options are possible:
The user decides what is the best option for files in quarantine.
The Quarantine can also be entirely deleted using the Empty quarantine button on the top left side of the window.
