TEKLIA provides a service to upload a large number of images directly on a IIIF image server. After the upload, the images are immediately available to be imported in Arkindex. This service is particularly useful when you do not already have a IIIF server hosting your images. The procedure to use this service is the following :
First you need to ask TEKLIA (you can reach us by email at
firstname.lastname@example.org or on our contact form ) for the creation of an account on this service. You will receive a user name (access-key) and a password (secret-key) by wormhole.app
The link on https://wormhole.app/ is valid only 24 hours. After this period, you will need to ask for a new link.
This method can be used for small files or a small number of files. For large files or a large number of file, prefer using a client such as Cyberduck (described below)
connect to storage.teklia.com and use the Access-Key and Secret Key provided by Teklia.
You will now be connected to https://storage.teklia.com/minio/<your_bucket>
Cyberduck is a graphical application available on Microsoft Windows and Mac Os X.
open a new connection and configure it:
you may be asked to enter your access key again at the first connection
duck --upload s3://storage.teklia.com/<your-bucket> <PATH to your data>
<your-bucket>with the name of your bucket
<PATH to your data>with the path to your data locally
Once your images are uploaded on
storage.teklia.com, they are immediately available through one of our IIIF servers.

To get your image URL, you'll need two information:

Let's say you have uploaded the image
test.jpg on the bucket
clientX-data, then your IIIF image url will be:
If you organized your content in folders, you need to url-encode the image path from the sever root to follow the IIIF spec.
If you uploaded the image
project/folderX/imageY.png in bucket
clientX-data, then your IIIF image url will be
Finally to view the image in your web browser, and not only its metadata, you need to specify a IIIF operation
The simplest operation is to view the raw file without modification, as a JPEG (whatever your original file format): simply suffix your image url with
So for the image
clientX-data this becomes:
