How do I upload to my Sta.sh?
You can upload to Sta.sh in a number of ways, here are a few ways you can add to your Sta.sh:
If you were to visit the URL "sta.sh" in your browser you will be taken to the main Sta.sh page. If you are not logged in you will be prompted to do so via our official remote authentication procedure. Just sign in using your normal DeviantArt.com username/email and password and you will see your Sta.sh page. From here you can either drag and drop your files from your computer to the blue space marked for upload in the browser or you can click the blue "Upload Files" button and select the files from your computer.
You will first need to ensure you have been granted FTP access. You can check this via your settings page under the heading "Apps & Uploads". Once in your settings be sure to enable the "Let me upload using FTP" option. You can then open your favourite FTP program and instruct it to point to "ftp.sta.sh". You will then need to log in using your DeviantArt.com username and password and once that is finished you can upload files to your stash by adding them to your FTP client.
To allow email uploads to your Sta.sh you will need to grant access via the "Apps & Uploads" heading on your settings page. Once in your settings be sure to enable the "Let me upload using email" option and a unique Sta.sh email will be automatically generated for you that looks something like this: UserNameemail@example.com (You can even customize the second part of this email via the settings page)
If you compose an email to this @sta.sh address the emails Subject will become the Title of the deviation, the email Body will become the deviation Description and if you attach an image or file this will become the deviation itself.
In the furture you will be able to upload via your favourite application! We currently have an API that allows developers to create mobile and desktop applications that link to your Sta.sh account. These applications will be available through what ever means the developer chooses to distribute them, and any issues regarding these 3rd party applications will need to be discussed with the developers of these apps. DeviantArt help staff will not be able to assist you with any unofficial applications.
Please keep in mind that anything added to your Sta.sh is not automatically posted to your DeviantArt gallery. Your sta.sh will only store (or rather stash
) your deviations until you are ready to submit them publicly.
