The popular Wi-Fi enabled Eye-Fi cards are now not just for sharing on social networks when it comes to uploading your files to the Internet.
While it has always been able to upload to sites like Flickr, not every one wants to upload their raw images to a sharing site before editing, if at all. Â Luckily the company behind the Eye-Fi cards has now added the ability to upload to FTP sites so you can get them off your card and on to a server only you have access to.
In anÂ announcementÂ on their support site, Eye-Fi lists what exactly you can do with the new FTP feature:
An Eye-Fi Card enabled with the Online Sharing service can be set to upload photos to an FTP server instead of a typical photo sharing site. FTP support allows you to send photos (JPEG only) and videos from your Eye-FI Card via the Eye-Fi server to personal and corporate FTP servers using either the FTP or FTPS protocols. Choosing to upload photos and videos to a corporate or private FTP server is as simple as choosing any other online photo or video destination Eye-Fi supports.
We aren’t exactly sure why the image upload supports JPEG only, but it is still a step in the right direction to be able to get your images into a secure environment as soon as possible.
