The Photo Station (4.0) is an online photo album used to organize your multimedia content (photos and videos) on the Turbo NAS and to share them with your friends and family across the Internet.
If not, please go to the App Center and make sure that the Photo Station has been installed and enabled first (for QTS 4.1 or later versions only) and follow the steps below to prepare for the Photo Station: Import photos and videos to a shared folder on the NAS.
There are three approaches you can upload photos and videos to the NAS: 1) Install Qfinder on your PC or Mac, set up a network drive and upload files to your preferred shared folders.
For details on setting up a network drive, please check the chapter on Connecting to NAS Shared Folders; 2) Click "Shared Photos" or "Private Collection" on the left panel and click "Import" on the main menu to import photos or videos from the local PC.
A new shared folder named with the date that files are uploaded will be created on the Turbo NAS to store your uploaded files (for "Shared Photos", this newly created shared folder is located under the "Multimedia" folder; for "Private Collection", this shared folder is located under the "/home" folder.) A corresponding album will be created under "Album" as well; and 3) Switch to the folder view browsing mode and drag and drop photos and videos to a preferred folder.
Note that with the first and third approach, you can choose which folder on the NAS that you would like to upload photos and videos into. For other formats (avi, m2ts, mpg, mp4, wmv, ts, tp, asf, m2t, mov, mod, m2v, mpeg, 3gp, mkv, mts, tod, trp, m1v, m4v, rmp4, divx, flv, rmvb and rm), they need to be converted into MP4 first Social Network Binding: Switch to this tab, choose the accessible folders that can be accessed by your friends on the social networking sites and click "Bind with Facebook".
After the account is bound successfully, your Facebook friends can log into the Photo Station ( with their account to browse photos from albums opened for them.Miscellaneous: check "Always ask me to enter my password when accessing Private Collection and Qsync", and each time a user is trying to access those categories, that user will be prompted for password. This feature is only available for photos with GPS coordinates; for photos with no GPS coordinates, please follow the steps in the Geotagging photos section to set their GPS coordinates.Shared Photos: List all photos and videos contained in all shared folders on the Turbo NAS (except photos and videos in the "/home" and "Qsync" folders) and all photos and videos are only visible to authorized users. Note that all entries listed under an album are only links to the physical files.This can effectively conserve your NAS storage space, as you can keep only one copy of the photos even when you create an album for a special theme.For album operations, please refer to the section on Using Photo Station below. Smart albums will only show photos or videos that match specific conditions chosen by users, such as today in history, random, tag and all files and can save you a lot of effort on photo management.For instructions on smart album operations, please refer to the section on Using Photo Station below.
