How to transfer photos to an Apple Time Capsule?

Time Capsule configuration

To connect PhotoSync directly to a Time Capsule you need to create an SMB (Windows network sharing) connection with the Time Capsule. To set up the Time Capsule open the Airport Utility on your Mac, select the Time Capsule and edit it.

To get the network address of your Time Capsule go to the Internet tab in the Time Capsule in the Airport Utility. You'll find the network address in the field IPv4 address.
