iAutoApp Setttings Guide Continued

Now you've entered your FTP connection details you'll need to set the photo quality, size and you will need to specify how your photos are to be named.

In the majority of cases the photo naming scheme is the registration of the vehicle plus a numeric figure. For example: AB01XYZ-1.jpg for the first photo of the vehicle, AB01XYZ-2.jpg for the second and so on. Some website car stock systems prefer to use a internal company "Stock Number" so you can choose to use that instead.
