Nope. Download them as many times as you wish!
Here a few suggestions for sharing the private event phone number with a larger party:
Simply send your gallery’s webpage link (we will provide).
Click the ‘Download Entire Gallery’ button under the ‘Settings’ tab of your gallery. Then you’ll get email to download your entire gallery as a .zip file.
Yep! You can send a text to everyone who contributed to the gallery, directly from within it. Just like sending a text from your phone, you can type out your message and hit send!
You can ‘Require Approval’ for your gallery pictures to go live as they are being added. This will mean they need to be manually approved before being added to gallery, and the live slideshow if you are using one. You can do this as your event is taking place. To approve a picture via computer, simply click the green check button that shows up when hovering over an image. To approve via mobile just tap it. To un-approve a picture, click or tap the orange ‘X’ button to remove it from the gallery.
Yes. TextEventPics will accept any video format that the mobile service providers will allow. But certain providers like AT&T convert their texted video to 3GP format, which is not supported for viewing in most browsers other than Apple’s Safari. It just depends on people’s providers and device. Video is not 100% supported, but you can always remove the ones that are not working.
After choosing the type of gallery you would like, you will land on a page where you can generate your gallery’s private phone number. Just enter the area code you would prefer to use and you will be presented with a list of available numbers.
