I have family reunion pictures uploaded to Revel and want to share them with family members scattered all over the U.S. How can I share them online for "read-only"?

Hi Timothy,

What you may want to do is create an album within your Library and call it Reunion or whatever you'd like. Put whatever images in the album that you'd like. You can even rearrange the order within the album. You would then select to Share that album. When you do that a URL is generated for that album. You will also get the option to allow downloading - uncheck that box.

You can now the link hat was generated out to your family. They'll be able to see all the images but not download them.

Best regards,
Glenyse

I had done most of this, but I'm unclear on the link that is generated...it seems to be the same one I get in with, and I can delete photos. What protection is there for the photos in the albums?

When you add a user to an library, there should be a checkbox giving them them the ability to add photos to the library. I want them to be able to use the app (much better interface than a browser shared link) and see notifications when I add photos... but I don't want them to add photos.

Hi Beth,

Great idea. I will pass it along to our product management team.

Thank you,
