Start by activating captions on your frame. You can do this via your remote and frame or using the Nixplay App. Using your remote, go to ‘Settings’ on your frame. Ensure that ‘Show Caption’ is set to ‘On’. Alternatively, using your Nixplay App, go to my Frames -> Settings -> Playlist Settings, and activate ‘Caption’.
Captions can be added to:
- Existing photographs already in your Nixplay albums: select any photo under ‘Albums’; a text filed with ‘Add caption’ appears. Type your caption in the space provided. Alternatively, select the hamburger menu on each thumbnail, and select the speech bubble to add a caption, directly from the album view screen.
- New photographs that you share directly from your camera roll via the Nixplay App. As you select any photo to share, you can type in the text field where ‘Add caption’ appears. The same is true when you share photos to friends (the same ‘Add captions’ functionality is available).
Note: Captions are only available for the photos saved/uploaded to our cloud storage (Nixplay or mynixplay Email albums). They are not available for photos being accessed or streamed from third-party social media sites or photo/file sharing sites (Facebook, Picasa, Instagram, Dropbox, or Flickr).
