Hi everyone,

This year [URL="https://www.facebook.com/AnimeNorthPhotoshoots/"]ANPhotoshoots has a Facebook page.[/URL] On this page shared albums are being uploaded for every photoshoot. If you happen to check out the album prior to AN you can even upload photos during the con.

This should make it easier to find photos of yourself from the photoshoots.

Well, if all goes as planned that is. :)

That was the idea, because I think you can see the page even if you don't have Facebook. Or at least you could (back in the day).

The albums are all google photo albums, unattached to Facebook.

Are you unable to see the page? Like there are albums up there right now, so if you can see the page you should be able to access them. The test album is pinned to the top.

[URL="http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=365213"] I tried to get people to test stuff[/URL] but didn't get many takers and of those who joined I got zero feedback.

So after two years of off and on research and self testing this was as "open" and "easy" as I could get. It might not work for some people, but whatever. Mass sharing photo albums that are free and accessible to tons of people, don't require downloading a program or doing a bunch of silly extra steps are practically non existent. I've tried dozens of things.

I wish I could find a way to have a link to ALL the albums but it seems nothing like that exists yet so i'm stuck manually sharing each album. I may have a workaround but it's hard to tell if it works or not without investing lots of my time.

(^_^)/ HUZZUH!

If you have "photos" on your android phone (its a google app) it will let you just upload right to the album from your phone, you can even select what to upload all at once. To do that though you'll have to click on the album you want ahead of time while signed into google, then it will recall that on your phone under "shared" albums (I think).

Otherwise those will an iphone will have to upload via the site, I think, not sure, couldn't find anyone with an iphone to test for me. :)

That would be correct. IPhone peoples will have to go to the site. I don't have an iPhone or any apple product so I can't check to see if there is an app for the upload.

Apple products are lame - that's why we don't have them. ^^
