Upload to FTP Server

Click this feature to show the FTP server dialog box. This box has important settings  for uploading the current image to an FTP server to which you have “write” access. 

The upper part of this dialog box is very similar to HyperSnap’s Save As window. It allows you to specify the exact graphics format and options for the uploaded file.

Remote file name

Set a file name with its specific path to be written on the remote host. (If you attempt to write to a path that does not exist, and you do not have “create directory” rights on the server, your upload will fail.)

If you simply include a filename here, the file will go to the remote server’s default directory for any uploaded files sent by your account (as set by your administrator).

If in doubt, do not include the path, or ask your administrator for the directory name for sending the file.

FTP Server (name or IP address)

Enter the name of the server to use. Example: company.com.

(You must have access to the server chosen to send the file there.)


Specifies the required outgoing protocol port. Most users will not need to change this setting.

Advanced users who need to make a change will know the new setting and how to alter it. If in doubt, leave it at the default 21.


Specifies your user name on the FTP server. You must enter it exactly as given to you by your administrator or the connection attempt will fail. The name may be case sensitive. Contact your administrator if you encounter connection problems.


Enter the site access password given to you by the site administrator. It is usually case sensitive, so be sure it matches exactly.

Save Password

Check to have HyperSnap remember your password between sessions.

Use this option if you are the only one using your computer. However, if security is an issue (as at work), leave this UNchecked.

Use passive mode (PASV)

Required by some FTP servers. If you have difficulty accessing your server, try to enable PASV mode or contact your administrator for help.

Proxy Server settings

If you’re using a hardware or software proxy server that meets the following criteria, enter the address of the proxy here.

§  The server must not use transparent Network Address Translation (NAT).

§  Your software must connect through the server address, which it will then re-route to the outside world.

Copy link text to clipboard…

If this option is checked, click it to clear check mark and turn off link text copying.

If this option is UNchecked, click to check it only if you want to copy a link.

If you do, the Link Specification window appears where you specify the exact text link to the image file. The link will be copied to clipboard for inserting into an HTML editor.

FTP Profile Name

To save all information required to access any FTP server in a “profile”, type a name for your profile into this box, then click Save FTP Profile button. The name includes server address, port, user name and password etc.

To recall previously saved information or a profile, click the down arrow and select a name from the drop-down list.

To delete a previously saved profile, select it in the drop down list and click Delete Selected Profile button.

Security warning: if you choose to save also your password, it will be written in registry database in slightly scrambled form. Although casual users won’t be able to read the password, an experienced hacker or someone running HyperSnap under a debugger program may decipher your password.

Use caution and do not save passwords routinely!
