Having complete control of your audio levels in Premiere Pro is simple. Here are two quick ways to fade audio volume in and out with ease.
When I first began uploading my own footage to stock video sites, I learned that Shutterstock and Adobe Stock require all footage files to be uploaded via ftp. I had never used an ftp service, so I was a bit stumped. I didn’t even know what an ftp site meant, much less how to use one.
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. Honestly, all you really need to know is that it allows you to transfer files from your computer directly to the corresponding site’s internal server. This lets you to transfer large files quickly and reliably - makes sense for video files.
There are two main options that I know of. Both are reputable and completely free. Personally, I use FileZilla, all the pictures in this article will use this example, but it’s really up to you which one you choose.
Before we jump into exactly how to login and upload your files, let’s gather some specific information so you have it all ready to go in one place.
Username: Your Shutterstock account email address or username
Password: Your Shutterstock account password
Now that you’ve got all your account info gathered, we can move on to step 3.

Once you have downloaded your ftp client of choice, go ahead and open up the program. Here’s what your opening screen should look like.
Using the very top left spaces, enter the information you gathered earlier. Start with Shutterstock. You can leave the ‘Port’ space blank. Here’s what it should look like:
Now click the blue Quickconnect / Connect button. You are now connected! You can connect to two or more hosts at the same time, so lets go ahead and connect to Adobe Stock as well. Click on File -> New Tab to enter your information for Adobe Stock the same way you did with Shutterstock. In this case, your username will match the ID number that Adobe gave you.
You can either drag your files directly from a folder on your computer into the lower right hand window of your FTP window, as you see below, or you can navigate to the folders on your computer directly using the lefthand window. After you drag the files to the window, don’t forget to click the upper tab to drag them to any other sites that you are connected to.
That’s it! You’ve done the hard part. Verify that your clips are uploading to all the sites that you’ve connected to and you’re good to go. There will be a slight delay from when they finish uploading to when they actually appear in Shutterstock and Adobe Stock, so don’t worry if they don’t show up immediately. It can take an hour or so. Here’s what it should look like while your files are uploading.
