Often a vector is much more graphic than an image, it allows you to concentrate an idea based on strokes and colors without distractions. The versatility of a vector is difficult to match with a photograph. We have a great collection of vectors.

If you are an illustrator or designer and want to send us your creations, we will be happy to upload them to the agefotostock vector collection.

Preparing the connection

  • Assuming that the photographer has received the credentials to connect to FTP (this information is always available in the "Photographer area," section "my profile").
  • Our FTP server is
  • To connect, you must use an FTP client software. We like Filezilla (
  • Leaving the port empty will force the connection by the default port (21).
  • You can also connect using port 22 that is less vulnerable to connection problems. If port 22 is indicated, the Filezilla program will automatically change the server's value to "sftp:/" The photographer should not introduce this value because you must always show server/host:

Choose the destination folder in the FTP

Any content sent outside of a license folder will not be processed.

  • Vector folders: “Eps RF” / “Eps LBRF”.

What we should not do

  • The content can't be uploaded outside of a specific folder because it won't be processed.
  • It is better not to send too many images in the same submission. To process the content quickly, no more than 2000 items per submission is a reasonable figure. You can, indeed, send many thousands at the time if you wish.

  • The link sent in the recipient email can be checked if all the content was processed correctly.
  • Once the submission has been edited, an email will be sent with the number of images, videos, or vectors selected.


  • We will review descriptions and keywords to check if they comply with our metadata requirements (find more info on the website, photographers section). We may ask photographers to make metadata corrections if necessary.
  • Vectors can be documented in the photographer area after the submission has been selected.
