The best way to download your files is to use a dedicated FTP program.
Dedicated FTP is faster and simpler than browser based transfer. For the
Mac Fetch and
Transmit are popular
full featured programs. CyberDuck is a nice donationware alternative. For the PC
Commander are good choices. Settings
for using any these programs are shown below. Note that everything is
in lower case letters. Substitute your personal username and password.

Note: There will be 2 folders named "public_html" and "Maildir" on your files
list. These are part of the web hosting system, NOT part of your project.
You are welcome to look at them, but they do not contain any of your images.
Alternative Web Browser Method
Many, but not all, web browsers will allow FTP access.
For Macs I've only had success with Firefox and Chrome. Safari and Opera will not work.
For PCs I've had success with Firefox and Chrome. Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera do not work.
Simply click your link below. You

We can also, at client's request, upload your files to DropBox and email you a link. Because anyone who has this link can get your files, this is less secure. There is no password protection. But, getting your files is as easy as clicking a link in an email.
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a method of transferring file too large for email. Large files can be sent to the client's FTP address or temporarily stored on FP&D's FTP space. Alternatively, clients can receive large files on CDs, DVDs, Thumb Drives, or Drop Box.
