No way! That's one of the many benefits of Picshare Party - no app download needed. All you need is text message! And because this makes it so easy for everyone to use, you'll get a ton more pictures!
With a hashtag, anybody can view your pictures or add new ones, so there's a definite lack of control and privacy. Plus, you aren't able to download pictures from Instagram. With Picshare Party, you can download your pictures anytime you want. Ultimately, you have complete control of your gallery with Picshare Party - the same cannot be said for Instagram!
After 30 days your unique phone number will expire. Once it is expired, your gallery will no longer accept text messages.
You will still be able to access and view your event gallery, though. Further, you can keep that same phone number around if you
choose to create another gallery using that phone number before the expiration, effectively pushing out the expiration another 30 days.

No problemo! You can create a free trial gallery any time - no credit card needed. Simply go here to get started! Then, when you're ready for the real deal, simply upgrade to a paid gallery and choose your custom phone number.
Currently, Picshare Party can generate phone numbers for the United States and Canada. You can view your gallery from anywhere there's an internet connection, though.
Nope! Your pictures are your pictures, so download them as many times as you wish.
Yes indeed! Messages that are texted in with a picture will show up on the picture as a caption. Voilà!
You can also search on captions to only see pictures with captions similar to your search criteria. Further, if you choose to download your gallery to your computer, every picture's file name includes its respective caption, which is a great way of organizing and grouping your pictures. On the other hand, you can also turn the caption feature off if you wish.
Picshare Party is a private picture gallery built instantly by text messages from you and your event guests. When you create a gallery, you choose your own custom phone number that you share with guests. All pictures and messages texted to your unique phone number show up instantly on your private gallery webpage. Easy peasy!
You have a number of options:
Sure thing! You can delete pictures from your gallery at any time.
Simply provide them with your gallery's webpage link (http://bit.ly/[your gallery's unique code])
Click the 'Download Entire Gallery' button under the 'Info' tab of your gallery. You'll then receive an email with a link to download your entire gallery (as a zip file).
It sure is! You can send off a text message to everyone who contributed to the gallery, directly from within Picshare Party. Just like sending text from your phone - type out your message, and click send!
This allows you to add pictures directly to your gallery from your computer and/or a digital camera. Very useful for when there is no way to send a picture by text message.
This allows you to add contributor/guest phone numbers to your gallery, bypassing the need for contributors to first send a text in order to join your gallery. Especially helpful if you're wanting to use the 'Direct message contributors' feature before any pictures have actually been sent to the gallery.
The approval delay allows for holding off on the posting of new pictures to the public-facing gallery and live slideshow for an allotted period of time to allow for review. You can choose between five and 60 minutes, one day or one week, depending upon your needs. Essentially, the delay gives you (gallery administrator) time to delete pictures before they show up publicly. If a picture is not manually deleted, then it will appear after the allotted time expires.
They sure will! Picshare Party will accept any video format that the mobile service providers will allow. However, some providers (such as AT&T) convert texted video to the 3gp format, which is not supported for viewing in most browsers. Therefore, video is not fully supported for viewing in the gallery and/or slideshow. If you download the video file to your computer, it should play just fine, though.
There are two ways to search for your own custom gallery phone number: 'by area code' or 'by term'. By area code means you will need to enter the area code for which you'd like to search for a custom phone number (most common). By term means you can search for letters that you want to include within your custom phone number (e.g. 772-cool-871 is the same as 772-266-5871).
There are a couple common reasons for having a keyword:
• You are using the same phone number for another gallery that is running at the same time.
• You want an additional layer of engagement with gallery contributors.
