Joomeo is one of the world’s most comprehensive photo and video sharing platforms. We have always primarily focussed on private sharing requiring mandatory visitor identification via a login name and password, and this is what our reputation is founded on.
With PUBLIC SPACES, Joomeo makes it possible for you to provide an open door to specific albums of your choice, enabling you to promote your video and photography talents across the entire world and not just to your contacts!
What are public spaces for?
Public spaces enable you to collect all your public albums (?) together on a single page that can be accessed by anybody just like an ordinary webpage or online blog.
Modern, user-friendly and ergonomic in design, public spaces are accessible via all web-enabled devices using simple everyday browsers. Additionally, no user identification is required to enjoy access to shared photos and videos!
Some new features you are really going to love!
Public spaces are not the only new development! They come accompanied by a number of improvements to public albums (?) that you are sure to really appreciate!
- FULL-SCREEN mode to enable large-scale display of your photos or videos!
Available on PCs/laptops, smartphones and tablets, full-screen mode is the best way to really show off the potential of your most impressive images with just a simple click.
- Slideshow mode is now available.
Visitors who want to simply sit back and view your photos without having to keep clicking all the time will be able to launch a slideshow display of the album of their choice and enjoy watching it in full-screen mode if they wish.
Furthermore, our subscribers also have the option of adding music to their albums to enhance their slideshow displays.
And it of course goes without saying that videos can also be played in slideshows.
- Your visitors will be able to share your albums in slideshow mode directly from your albums’ sharing functions. This is an excellent way to promote your work and increase the virality of each and everyone of your photos and videos.
And added to all this are plenty of other new features that we’ll let you discover by yourselves.
How do public spaces work?
Using public spaces really is simplicity itself!
- Activating your public space: This step is carried out in the “MY PROFILE” section of your Joomeo account.
You will find a button enabling you to activate your public space just below your private space address. All you have to do is click it.
The process is instantaneous and the address of your public space will immediately appear.
- Sharing your public space: Access your public space by clicking the link that appeared after it was activated then use the social network sharing buttons to distribute it to your community.
- You can even insert a link to your public space in your blog, in a forum, or anywhere else where it’s possible to share links by copying the appropriate link from the “Page actions” menu.
What do public spaces look like?
It’s probably best if you see for yourself what public spaces look like and how they work:

It’s a tiny modification to the interface of your Joomeo space but a major advance in the world of sharing possibilities offered by our platform!
What do public albums give you?
In introducing public albums, Joomeo is providing you with a new way to share and really get the most out of your photos and videos.
The following is a non-exhaustive list of the various advantages they provide:
They can be accessed using any browser and do not require the installation of any additional app or plugin (they are displayed via a simple HTML page).
Their elegant design adapts to all types of screens to really show off your photos and videos at their best (responsive design).
Photo loading is optimised to ensure rapid display at the highest possible quality for the user’s screen.
A simple link enables you to share your public album however you choose via, for example, social networks, blogs and forums.
No user identification is required to view your public album, making it an excellent tool for promoting your talents!
And that’s not all. We’ve added a series of options designed to make it easy to virally distribute your creations!
- With these buttons, the process of sharing on the main social networks is made simplicity itself.
- With this button, all you need to do is copy the html code for your chosen image to integrate it into to a web page, a forum or a blog at the right size and begin promoting your work!
- The button enables downloading of the image’s original source file. It only appears if you check the “Allow original format for the direct link” in the public link manager.
How does it work?
As usual, it’s very simple and easy!
- Go to your Joomeo space.
- Choose the album you want to share using this new function.
- Click the “ACTION” button and choose the “Public link to the album” option.
- And that’s it. All that remains for you to to do is simply follow the rest of the process!
In the window that opens up, simply select and copy the link that best corresponds to how you want to publish your public album (blogs, social networks, forums, etc.).
Did you notice? At the top of the window there is a checkbox. It enables you to authorise or prohibit downloading of the original files by your visitors. Isn’t that a convenient feature?
NB: As their name suggests, public albums are accessible WITHOUT USER IDENTIFICATION!
Any web user with access to the album’s URL can see your photos and videos and download them if you have checked the “Allow file downloading” option in the public link manager.
We therefore recommend adopting a careful approach when choosing the albums you want to use this function with on Joomeo.
Joomeo was created to make photo and video sharing easier, so to help you share albums to a folder (and its subfolders) more quickly, we have developed an incredibly easy system…
Just a simple drag and drop to share everything!
To share the entire contents of a folder in a single step, simply choose a contact in your contacts book (“TOOLS” menu) and drag it to your folder, plain and simple!
It also works with A GROUP OF CONTACTS! Select the group of contacts you want, and drag it straight to a folder. All of the folder’s albums will be shared to each member of the group.
Easy and convenient!
Important: when using this method, the sharing preferences you have chosen for each contact are used. If no particular preference was determined for some of your contacts, the default preferences defined on the “MY ACCOUNT” page will be applied.
SET YOUR PREFERENCES IN JOOMEO
Have you noticed that you can set some default settings upon importing your files in your Joomeo space?
These settings are adjusted in the “Import” area of the “PREFERENCES” section in your Joomeo account, and they might allow you to save some precious time!
Here’s what it looks like, and what it’s used for!
This dropdown menu alows you to manage the size of your image preview. We recommend that you keep the default settings, i.e. HDTV 1080. This will make all displays easiest to view.
By checking this box, which is available on FOCUS offers and higher, you decide to apply a watermark to all files imported to your Joomeo space.
This option allows you to automatically display the IPTC information caption embedded into your files in the Joomeo caption area.
With this option, each file name appears in the Joomeo caption area, if there is no IPTC caption.
By importing the keywords that you have added to your files’ IPTC data, you supply the keyword manager of your space, making searching and selecting files in your library easier.
By checking this option, you can avoid storing the same images twice in the same album. A valuable tool to help you manage your library better.
*Option available on DYNAMIC offers and higher
