About the pictures for the labels: Has Mr. Bender tried altering the picture properties after importing the picture? They're accessible by right-clicking on the picture (or whatever the Mac equivalent is) and selecting "Picture". I think the properties he's looking for are under Type and under Wrap. He can also use the other right-click menus Alignment and Anchor.

The FTP answer is not correct whatsoever. Just because you see a website that says something uses "FTP" does not mean it is so. DropBox and all those other cloud services DOES NOT use FTP. FTP is old, slow, and insecure (it transmits passwords over the internet in clear text). Furthermore most routers and firewalls block FTP by default. Most cloud services simply use HTTPS.

One big mistake about the videos. I don't see anything in the question that suggests that 1080P high def. I suspect that the teaching methods are the important part of the video, not the instructor's nose hairs. I suspect that Standard Definition or even 1/4 SD would do the job (might need some instructions on reducing the videos to be written up). That would reduce the amount of space needed for the videos tremendously.
