Photo Albums for OCS Programs

In order to allow you to share your images from your trip, we’ve come up with a way for you to upload them in batches to a web-based area. Your instructor will then authorize the images to appear on the Photo Album website for your program.

Please follow these steps carefully, and let us know if you have any trouble. You are guinea pigs in this project and we think it’ll work fine. I am counting on you to tell me otherwise. All problems can be reported to

Step One:

Create a folder in the webpub folder of your home directories called reason_import_only. Place up to 10 images at a time in this folder. JPG, GIF or PNG formats are acceptable, please convert all other formats to one of these.

Step Two:

Go to:

And login using your Carleton username and password.

Step Three:

Fill out the form you see with any information that is true of all images. We particularly encourage you to fill out the Author field so that we know who submitted which image. See below for editing information on a per image basis, it is done after the initial upload step.

Source Folder: choose Your Network Drive

Target Site: choose your OCS program (should be your only choice)

Author: please put the name of the person who took the photo

All other fields are optional

Click Import Photos

Step Four:

Remove previously uploaded photos from your reason import directory and then follow the steps above to upload another batch.
