If you’ve not done so already, we’d recommend that you watch the first video in this series called ‘How to add photos to your Nixplay frame with playlists’.
When you upload media to the Nixplay Cloud from your hard drive or other sources, it needs to be uploaded to a Nixplay Cloud album. Albums are the place where original photos are backed up on the Nixplay Cloud.
If you’re starting out and adding your first photos to your frame, you can already go straight to photos and playlist. Alternatively, you can create an album, add photos to that album from multiple sources, and then cherry pick which photos from that album should appear in which playlists.
An album is your memory library in the cloud.
To create an album, go to Photos. After Playlists, you’ll see Albums, which you should click. Click ‘Create an Album’, give it a name and click ok. You’ll now be prompted to start adding photos. Hit yes.
Choose Add Photos from the top right of your screen. Find the location, and select the photos that you’d like added to your Album.
Once your photos have been uploaded, you can drag and drop each individual photo to the playlist of your choice, or you can bulk select a number of photos, and do the same. Remember that you should always select ‘Save’ after adding photos from the album to a playlist.
Good to know is that you can also add captions to individual photos when in Albums. These captions will be displayed on your Nixplay frame. Select any photo and click on the caption to add.
You are also able to download an entire album.
