Create your own network on Joomeo

SHARING PHOTOS AND VIDEOS GETS EVEN EASIER THANKS TO NETWORKS!

It is easy and safe to share your photos & videos on Joomeo: your contacts do not need to create a Joomeo account to access the albums you shared them.

But, did you know? If your contacts have a Joomeo space, you can create a network with them and get a direct access to their albums from your own space… Ain’t that useful?

We show you how it works in this video:

How do you use contact groups?

MANAGING SHARES

SHARE MORE EASILY WITH CONTACT GROUPS

Requiring just a simple drag and drop, a contact group is one of the best ways to share one or more albums with a large number of contacts in one go!

CREATE A CONTACT GROUP

  To create a contact group, select “MANAGE MY CONTACTS” from the “SHARE” menu

  In the contacts book which then opens up, click the “ADD” button, then click on “Add a new contact group”.

  Choose a name for your contact group, then select the contacts you wish to group together one at a time, adding them by clicking the arrow with a “+” symbol next to it. Click “Apply” to create your group.

SHARING USING CONTACT GROUPS

  Once your group has been created, you can then share albums or folder contents by simply dragging the contact group onto the item to be shared.

IMPORTANT :

   A contact group does not have its own permissions. It simply lets you share albums with several contacts and alert them in a single operation.
This means that:
   1 – when you add a new contact to the group, the new contact does not inherit previous shares.
   2 – each contact keeps their own individual permissions for the albums shared.

   When you drag a contact or contact group onto a folder, you do not share the folder but the albums it contains (and those in any subfolders).
Therefore, if you remove an album from a folder to which you’ve previously dragged a contact or contact group, the share permissions will not be removed and your contacts will still have access to the album.

Photo books…how do they work?

AS USUAL EVERYTHING HAS BEEN DONE TO MAKE IT EASY FOR YOU!

There are several ways to automatically fill your book and allow you to order your photo book quickly.

Obviously, nothing is mandatory…you feel a photo is not in the right place? Change it by simply dragging and dropping…… You don’t like the page layout somewhere? Choose another one in one click. You can change anything at will and as many times as you like before ordering.

READY TO TRY? SO HERE WE GO, YOU’LL SEE, IT’S CHILD’S PLAY!

  Login to your Joomeo space or create an account
  Publish your pictures in an existing album, or create a new one
  Click on the “ ACTION” button for the album and choose “Create a new photo book using the photos from this album”


  And now let yourself be guided!

Square, portrait, panorama, big or small… Choose your photo book format


Select the type of cover you want:




notepad cover (paper and stapled binding) to layout your everyday moments


soft cover (paper cover and square, glued binding), ideal for your holiday or party books


hard cover (cardboard cover and glued binding) to tell the story of your favourite memories and highlight your exceptional moments


Fully automatic? Fully manual? Choose the mode that suits you best:



  • Blank photo book: you choose your page layout and the photos as you create your book
  • Fill the book with random page payouts: our system selects the format of each page for you
  • Choose the page layouts for all the pages: you can choose page layouts that will be used both for left and right pages in your photo book.
  • Choose left hand page layouts and right hand page layouts for the photo book: you choose the page layouts that will be used by the system to automatically populate the left hand pages and the right hand pages of your photo book




Check the “Fill my book, with my selection” box if you want your book filled automatically using the photos
in your album. If you prefer to choose the location of each photo yourself, uncheck this option.

Indicate the type of paper you want to use (satin, glossy, matt photo or glossy photo) and the number of pages

Validate and let your creativity guide you!

NO DUPLICATE PICTURES!

When you’re creating a photo book containing several dozen photos it’s sometimes difficult to know how far you’ve got and remember which photos have already been used. Thanks to Joomeo, relax! A small marker shows how many times each photo appears in your book… you’re done with duplicates!

NO MORE MISTAKES…

Oops, an empty page or a forgotten caption! Don’t worry, when you validate your page layout, Joomeo indicates the possible anomalies in your creation and proposes to “browse” through it like a real book to check everything. Reassuring isn’t it!

There are an incredible number of page layouts, 6 available formats, 3 types of cover and 4 papers available… now it’s up to you!

How do photo books work…? (continued)

The photo book application is very rich and there are numerous tools available.
short glossary of the main icons and available functions.

This is what your photo book creation screen looks like:

A clear, spacious and rich interface. When we created this application our main concern was your ease of use. We took special care over the ergonomics of our solution: look at the icons, they are self explanatory, which is the guarantee of flowing and intuitive use.

We are going to present them below to familiarise you with this new tool.

1
The button “BACK” button
 


As its name indicates, it is used to return to the previous page or to exit an advanced photo book function

2
The “MODIFY” button
 


You want to change your photo book’s name? This is where to do it!

3
The “SET YOUR BOOK PARAMETERS” button
 


To change the main settings for your photo book, such as its format, cover or paper…

4
The “ORGANISE PAGES” Button
 


Click on this button to manually lay out your pages to your taste using drag and drop… child’s play!

5
The “SAVE” and “RETURN TO THE LAST SAVED VERSION” buttons
 


Regularly save your photo book while you create it by clicking on the diskette button. This makes it possible for you to have a reference point to fall back to! If you make a mistake, click on the “Return to the last saved version” button (showing a watch with its hands turning backwards). You will restore the photo book as it was when you last saved it. Handy isn’t it!

6
The “PREVIEW” button
 


Click on this button and admire your work as if it were the real thing. This is a very important step, you can use it to check that no pictures have been forgotten, and that your work corresponds to what you intended.

7
“THE CREATION ZONE”
 

This is obviously where it all happens! This is zone the zone you use to change your album and view those changes in real time.
Fill the image blocks using basic drag and drop from your selection of photos (available to the right of your screen) to the block you have selected. Use the text areas to comment your photos or write down your thoughts…

Have you noticed? When you drag an image over this creation zone, a small triangle appears in the upper right or left corner of the page…drop the image in the centre of the page or on the triangle….and watch what happens!

Our photo book application is filled with resources! Be curious, test, search, creating your photo book will be even more fun.

8
The “ADD” button
 


You forgot to put some pictures in your photo book selection? Don’t worry. Click on this button and access all your albums to choose the pictures to complete your work.

9
The “PHOTO SELECTION “
 


Here you will find all the photos you selected and which are available to create your photo book. When a picture has already been used a small dot appears at the top right of the thumbnail and indicates how many times you used the photo in your book… this is practical to avoid repeating yourself!!!

10
The “NAVIGATE” button
 


The “NAVIGATE” buttons on either side of the creation zone are used to scroll forward or backward through your photo book’s pages.

11
The “BLEED” button
 


Bleed is a technical area used by the printer when printing the book. It is partially or completely removed when your photo book is assembled and bound. It is therefore essential that it does not contain any important information… The “BLEED” button shows or hides the marks that allow you to identify these areas, we strongly recommend that you keep this function active and be careful in aligning your pictures!

12
The “NAVIGATION” bar
 



barUsing this tool you can switch from one page to another of your photo book in a single click. You can either use the horizontal bar by clicking on the “Cover”, “Page 1″, “Page 2″, etc. buttons, or you can click on the index (“Go to” button) which contains a list of all the pages.

The single arrows are used to scroll through the pages one by one, whereas the double arrows take you directly to the first or last page.

13
The “PAPER TYPE » and « NUMBER OF PAGES” button
 

It would be difficult to be more explicit! These 2 buttons are used to change the support that will be used to print your photo book and the number of pages required. You made these choices when you began creating your photo book, but anyone can make a mistake!

14
The “ORDER” button
 


order…but don’t worry, if you have sudden doubts you can always re-check and re-verify and make last minute changes, add a picture etc. Until you have paid, nothing is permanent. Reassuring isn’t it?

If you still have questions, need explanations, or if something is not clear. Our customer support is available every day of the week, don’t hesitate to call them!
