New iPad owner in distress. Photos, file browsing, ftp)
First, thanks for a great forum with plenty of information. However, I was unable to find what I hoped someone had already discussed.
I was given an iPad together with a camera connection kit for backing up - and sending photos home to HQ for further, immediate processing. (I think someone should have done a bit of research!)
I import photos into the viewer without issues. Shows up as raw+jpg - all good here.
I can attach the iPad to my computer and be able to retrieve the RAWs and JPGs, just as I normally import from my camera.
Here comes my question/issue:
I would like to send a high amount of RAW photos from my iPad to HQ servers through SFTP or WebDAV. I need it to be the RAWs, not app-altered JPGs.
Preferably I'd have them all compressed in a package, like zip or rar, however, I was also unable to find proper apps able to do this, and I'd have the same local file storage browsing issue as the below...
I went to the AppStore and got myself a few FTP apps, just to discover how they did not meet my requirements.
I cannot get a proper view of the local file storage of the iPad - as in, whenever I want to upload a photo, it'll go through the Library, and I am unable to ship off the RAWs to the HQ server through SFTP... some of the apps even mess up the JPGs trying to do compression. The same thing goes for WebDAV applications.
Is the above scenario completely not doable on the iPad, or did I just get the wrong applications?
I hope you can understand what I'm trying to do - else please ask and I'll try to provide more info.
Thanks in advance.
