Using the photo database

UW's award-winning photo services department has thousands of photos available to all UW personnel for use on UW websites. If you don't already have access to the database, submit a request using the project request form.


Once you have access to the database follow these steps:

Login to the Photo Database

Navigate through the photos, select the ones you want and add the photos to your cart.

Once you have added the photos you need to your cart, click the View Cart link on the right side of the page.

Select For Web for each of you photos, type the name of your website in the field that asks What publication will you be using these photos for, select your department or division from the list, and click Send Photo Request.

UW photo database checkout


You will receive an e-mail when your photo request has been fulfilled. Your photo will be located in:

\\warehouse\uprphoto$\upr\users\yourusername. You can navigate to this folder by searching for it via the start menu on your computer. You will have access to this photo for two business days, so it is best to copy it to your machine as soon as possible.

(MAC users map with:  smb://warehouse/uprphoto$/upr/users/yourusername) 

To access the folder from off-campus or if having problems accessing using a Mac, go to, once logged in, paste the above folder location into the browse field in the upper right section. You will see a list of folder contents. You can download the images to your computer from here. Also click on the Bookmark Folder icon in the upper right side. This will allow you to pin the folder to your WyoSecure home page so you don't have to paste the folder path in the browse field in the future.
