Don’t have the app? Get it!


After starting up the app, you have the choice of signing into your account, creating a new account, or just browsing through some photos. Let’s start by signing in.



Once logged in, you’ll land on our beautiful and functional Home screen. Not only can you scroll through your recent uploads, but you can share them, or enhance them using our powerful editor, which has all the same tools you’d find on the full site!




You can begin uploading right away by tapping the camera icon below, or take a new photo for you to edit and upload.


After tapping upload, select one or more photos that you’d like to upload.


After selecting your media, tap UPLOAD.


Your upload will begin once you choose your destination album.



Access the app menu by tapping on the camera icon in the top-left corner of the screen. From here, you can Browse users’ public images, head to your Library, set up Auto Backup, or access your Settings.


Tap My Library to open up your album tree. On this screen, you can create additional albums by tapping the ‘+’ icon in the corner of the screen. If you don’t see an album that should be there, tap the refresh icon.


Once you select an album, you’re greeted with a gorgeous display of all your images. Just scroll down to see the rest of your album. Tap an image to view in full screen, or tap the menu icon at the top right corner of the screen for options.


From this menu, you can share the album, move/delete photos, upload more photos, or delete the album (if you’re trying to share just a single image, just tap the image and then tap the share icon at the bottom of the screen).



Use the Browse option to scan through preset categories of public user images. Access Browse through the menu.


There are several categories, each with sub-categories, for you to explore. If you have something specific you’re looking for, you can do a keyword search by tapping the magnifying glass at the top of the screen.
