-===== Lightroom’s FTP Functionality ===== 
- 
-Lightroom’s Web module has the ability to act as an FTP client for the purpose of uploading a web gallery to your web server. The setup is much the same as for any FTP client, in that you are required to supply a server address, user name and password. You can also specify a root address, and then set a sub-folder path for each gallery.

-While convenient, Lightroom’s FTP capability isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It often chokes mid-transfer,​ and fails to complete the upload. It’s interface is so simplified, that it’s also easy to send your gallery to the wrong location, possibly inadvertently overwriting other files in the process. If Lightroom’s FTP works for you, it’s your choice whether to use it or not. Most people worth asking, however, would advise avoiding Lightroom’s Upload feature. Instead, it’s best to Export your galleries to your desktop, and use an FTP client to upload the files to your server. You’ll find this to be more reliable, and it allows you to have clearer control over your website structure.

 And that’s the gist of FTP. I hope you’ve found this helpful. If anything seems unclear, or not fleshed out as well as it should be, let me know and I’ll update this post as necessary. And that’s the gist of FTP. I hope you’ve found this helpful.
