How is this different than social media?
Share-Your-Photos is more private than social media- only the people you choose can see your photos. You also have the ability to download photos and videos directly to your device, which you cannot do as easily (or at all) on some social media sites.
Can my event hashtag and Share-Your-Photos event ID be the same?
Since guests tend to only post a few select images on social media, you can miss out on some really great pictures. If you ask guests to download the Share-Your-Photos app and give them the event ID, you can access all of the photos afterward. We guarantee you’ll find a bunch of framers in there that you wouldn’t have seen otherwise! We love hashtags and posting to Instagram too and suggest you make your Share-Your-Photos event ID and your unique hashtag the same to keep it simple for guests. Note: Share-Your-Photos won't recognize the "#" symbol, so don't use that as part of your ID.
Can you use this on both iPhone and Android?
Share Your Photos is available on iPhone (iOS) and Android. You can also use shareyourphotos.com on your MAC/PC. And even someone who has a flip phone or is using a digital camera can log onto our website afterward to upload their photos and view the rest.
Are the photos private or public?
It’s up to you! Only people with the event ID can access the photos and you can share that with whomever you’d like. If you’d like an extra layer of privacy, you can select that option and then users will need a special passcode in addition to the event ID.

Of course! Download the app or sign up online, plug in the event ID and go ahead and relive the memories!
