Uplink: Setup and Management

globaledit Support -

Uplinks are simple upload portals that you can set up for a photographer or tech (for example) to upload directly into your account. The set up is easy and only takes a few minutes.

  • Begin by logging into your account with your username and password. 
  • Next, click the Manage tab at the top of your screen and select Uplinks > Add New Uplink.


  • Next, you can either select a pre-made Job for the uploader to upload to or create a New Job. Once you have selected a destination folder, click Next.


  • Now you can specify an Uplink name that pertains to the shoot; something that the recipient will recognize. 
  • In the Uploader field, add a user OR an email address to send to guest uploader.
  • Here you can also add a note as well as set an optional expiration date.
  • Once you have completed this step, you can click Next.


  • This next option can be a huge time saver. You can either set the option to pre-enter all the metadata for the shoot so that it is automatically stamped to the images when they come in, or you can set it so that the uploader must enter the metadata on their end for you. You can determine (through custom metadata schemas or use the default drop-downs) which metadata needs to be applied. This will save a lot of time by not having to go through later and input everything one at a time. (Note: You do not have to pick either if you do not want metadata to be added at all during the upload).


  • After clicking Next you will be prompted to fill out and customize the default email that will be sent to the recipient.
  • Once this is filled out, click Next and you will be shown a summary of the Uplink you have created. To complete this, click Send Uplink and you are done.
