Photos

What is the first thing you want to look at when you connect with the people you know online? Photos!

With Sgrouples, you can both share and store any of your personal images in a private setting. Post those photos of your party to your Sgrouples group containing your friends without worrying about repercussions. Or show your family that picture of your child’s first steps while still keeping him or her safe from online predators.

In this post, you will learn about the following:

Posting a Photo


Posting a Photo

With the button under “Click here to share and post,” it is easy to post to any and all of your networks.

Uploading a Picture

Where it says “Drop image Here,” you can either click and drag a photo on your computer’s desktop or click to select an image from elsewhere on your hard drive. You may also choose an image by clicking “Change” next to “Upload a Picture.” The image will then appear in the box.

Click “Type your status here” to say something about the photo.

And check-mark the boxes next to the color-coded Sgrouples groups and networks with whom you would like to share.

Posting a Photo

Once you have decided, click “Share” and the process is complete!

You can also “Upload Pictures” with the button under the “Photos” tab in “Groups” or “My Cloud.” You will be prompted with a box asking where you want your photo to end up – “Uncategorized” or in an “Album.” You can “Create an Album” and upload pictures at the same time with the button above “Upload Pictures.”

You should see two different kinds of pictures: “My Albums” and “Uncategorized Pictures.”

My Albums

Albums are all about grouping pictures of like genres or occasions together.

You’ll notice that your group’s thumbnail pictures are automatically put into an album. Create a new album with “Create Album.” You will be prompted with a box telling you to name and describe the album and asking whether or not you would like to allow other group members to add and arrange the photos.

Upload Album

You can then choose which pictures to upload into the album.

Clicking on an Album gives you several options: Go “Back to Albums,” “Upload Pictures,” View a “Slideshow” of the album, share a photo with the linked squares icon, and remove the photo with the “X” button.

You can also arrange the photos in the album by clicking and dragging them where you’d like.

Albums

Clicking on any photo will bring up its own window in which you can “Comment” on the photo, “Edit” the caption, and “Like/Love,” “Share,” “Tag,” “Categorize,” or “Remove” the photo.
