Share your holiday photos with a dotphoto slideshow

  1. To view and share slideshows, click on any photo.
  2. When viewing a photo, there is an icon menu in the upper right.
  3. The second icon from the left is the sharing icon.
  4. The third icon with the right arrow is the slideshow icon.

Viewing a Slideshow

Click or tap the slideshow icon.  The show will start from the first photo in your album and play through to the end at the speed in seconds in the lower left corner of the show. The default rate is 3 seconds per slide, but you can increase or decrease the number of seconds with the +/- keys.

Control the slideshow using the controls around the sides:

  1. To close the show and return to the album’s photos, click in the upper-left corner.
  2. Change the speed of the slide show by clicking the plus or minus keys in the lower-left corner.
  3. To move faster than the default rate, click the forward and back arrows on the right and left.
  4. To pause or re-start the show, click in the lower right corner.

Making a Slideshow

Every album can be played as a slideshow, but you can also create an album specifically for a slideshow, copy photos to that album, rearrange the photos as you like, and then share that album as a slideshow.

Sharing a Slideshow

When viewing a photo (not the slideshow), click or tap on the sharing icon:

The next page contains a link to the slideshow that you can copy and paste to your email, web site, forum, Facebook, Twitter or other sharing tool.

Clicking the Copy button will usually copy the link; however, certain browsers and phones may not enable the copy button. You can also select the entire link, copy the link directly, and paste it into your sharing tool.

dotphoto increases file size to 30 MB per file

New 30 MB file sizePhotos are getting bigger. Some dotphoto members have called about their new mirrorless and panoramic cameras that capture photos larger than 20 MB, so we have just expanded the maximum photo size by 50% to 30 MB. And your dotphoto membership still includes unlimited storage, which is a great way to free up the photo storage on your camera phone.

Getting the right colors

dotphoto prints using the sRGB color space that is standardized across the Internet, computers, printers, and cameras. sRGB is often the default color space for cameras. If you are adjusting colors using the Adobe RGB color space, you will see different colors.

Get the right colorThe best way to ensure color satisfaction is (1) calibrate your monitor to the sRGB standard (2) if you are pre-processing images in Adobe Photoshop or other editing software, use the sRGB standard that will align with dotphoto’s printers, and (3) trust your eyes. While dotphoto and other editing software provide automatic tools that are meant to help improve colors, your own eyes are the best judge of what you prefer. We at dotphoto do our best to provide a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) experience, but we all see a little differently. If you have calibrated your screen and you don’t like what you are seeing, don’t print until you have modified your images to suit your own taste.
