Image hosting software problem

Can anyone recommend software to use on a Mac to host images to an external Amazon server, and give the images public use permissions? I have Cyberduck, but I can only view images on the Amazon server, then copy and paste the URL to my code. I have to ask someone else in the company working on a PC using different software to host and give public permissions for me. Please could other Mac users let me know what they use? Thanks

Hi racheld,

Welcome to the Email on Acid forums - hope you’re well!

I’m a little confused by the question - apologies about that! But it does seem to me that you need an FTP client to push images to an external Amazon server?

I’ve had the issue you’re experiencing with CyberDuck in the past, I think. The way to fix that would be to right click the images you wish to make public, go to “info” and then you can change the permissions, it’s frustrating how this only happens on a Mac.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for a new application to push the images to the Amazon server I’d suggest using Filezilla which you can find here. It’s open source and works on Mac.

I hope I’ve helped - if I misunderstood the question or you need any other assistance please don’t hesitate to ask.

Many thanks
