It is estimated (by Deloitte) that globally 3.5 million photos are shared every minute… and people love them. This iFootpath Expert article explains how you can share your walking pictures with others by uploading them to the iFootpath walk Galleries – there’s a Gallery for every walk and an audience waiting to view them.
We know from feedback that iFootpath users love to view the walk Galleries, especially the pictures that include you, your friends and your pets enjoying the walks. It's easy to upload your pictures using the iFootpath website or the App and you can edit all your draft Gallery pictures (rotate, crop, brighten and more) on the website too.
UPLOAD YOUR GALLERY PICTURES VIA THE APP
You will find a link to the Gallery on both Apps on every Walk Overview page - that's the first page of every walking guide - just scroll to the bottom. You will also find a link in the drop down menu on the walk directions pages. The following screen shots show you how to get to the drop down menu - just tap the V
You will now see the Gallery page including photographs that may have been added by other walkers. You can tap the images to enlarge them and read the descriptions.
Now to upload your pictures... Uploading and sharing your pictures on the iFootpath iOS and Android Apps are very similar but there are a few differences.
- To add a Gallery picture via the iOS App tap the grey square “Add photo". For the Android App tap the + in the top right corner of the screen. You will now be asked to select the photo source - you can use your phone’s camera and take a picture, or upload a picture that you have taken earlier.
- When you have selected the photo, the 'Share to iFootpath' process for the two operating systems is a little different. For the iOS App, you will see the chosen image now in the Gallery of User Photos and a pop up will ask you to tap the new image. When you do this, you will be asked to add an optional Title and Photo Description. You can then upload the image to iFootpath by tapping Upload in the top right corner - don't forget to do this...
- For the Android App you will be asked to add the optional Title and Photo Description as soon as you have chosen a photo. You will then see your photo in My Photos. To share the photo with iFootpath, please tap the image and then tap Upload.
- The photos that you have uploaded are now in Draft ready for Richard and Claire to approve them. See below for how to edit the pictures at this stage should you wish.
