Every Nixplay Cloud Frame is required to have an online account where you will be able to manage your Photos, Albums, Playlists and even your contacts or what we call “Friends.”
At the end of this guide, you should have learned the following:
- To send photos via email
- To send photos via Nixplay Web App
- Using the mobile app to send and/or manage photos
Sending Photos via Email
Sending photos via email is very straight forward. This will include screenshots on how to do so as well as the basic requirement of having a working email address and an @mynixplay.com email address to send to.
When composing an email message you will see a paper clip icon that tells you to Attach a file. This is a function that is available for nearly all email messages. When you press on this icon, this will let you access the files in your computer to select photos to be attached. In this example, we will be using gmail.com as a visual guide.
The figure below will show what the Attach file button looks like.
By pressing on the Attach files icon, this will let you access the files in your computer with a file select window. Once it does, select the photo or photos that you want to send.
There is no need to put a Subject or any messages since this will be ignored as it’s not a photo.
By pressing Send, this will deliver the photo to the @mynixplay address shown above. You may get a warning that you have no Subject but you can continue.
When the photo has been delivered to the @mynixplay.com account, the photos will automatically be stored to the Albums Page, Friends tab, as an album with the email address as the sender.
Note: Make sure the recipient email is "firstname.lastname@example.org" and not the usual email addresses such as gmail or yahoomail, to ensure that photos will be sent to the recipient Nixplay Account.
Sending Photos via Nixplay Web App
Sending photos via is as simple as one, two, three:
- Go to Albums Tab and select the Album you wish to select the photo from
- Select and mark the photos
- Click Send to Friend
Sending Photos Using the Nixplay Mobile App
With the use of the Nixplay Mobile App, this will let you share the photos in your mobile phone by letting you send photos to a Friends or to a specific Playlist that you have in your Nixplay account.
When accessing the Nixplay Mobile App you will need to login for the first time and this will automatically save your username and password.
Once you have logged in this will let you choose pictures from your Camera Roll/Albums or let you take a picture and then send it.
In choosing a photo from the camera roll, you can mark the ones that you want to send to your account (playlist) or to your friends. When you have chosen one, press the Next button. The number beside the Next button indicates the number of photos that you have chosen. Captions can be added on the next screen.
As soon as you press Next after Captions Page, you will be in a page where you are able to choose a specific playlist or a Friend that are available in your list. In this example, the only Friend that I have is named Nixplay. If you have more, you will be able to scroll down and Tap others.
