More to know...
Can I use this in any browser?
We support Internet Explorer 10, Safari 6, Firefox 12, Chrome 20 and up.
What is the difference between Standard and Full photo resolution?
- We remove unnecessary stuff in the JPEG and make the new image more compressed. This helps us offer you unlimited photo storage, which we know you love.
- Standard Resolution works for most products.
- Full Resolution adds photos without applying compression, so it's better for larger products.
Why don't photos appear in the order I added them?
- We upload three images at once, so we can add them to your library faster.
- Photos don't always appear in the order you added them.
- Change the browse settings of your photos in your library.
Are there any limitations on images I can upload to my library?
Yes. While we support almost all JPG/JPEG and PNG images produced by modern cameras and smart phones, we don't support the following file types and sizes:
- TIFF, PSD, AI, PDF and WEBP file types
- Images larger than 150MB
- Images larger than 100 megapixel (MP)
- Video and audio files
- In addition, not all JPG/JPEG files are supported. Currently, we only support 8-bit RGB and sRGB color space. This excludes certain JPG file types such as JPEG2000 (or JP2). If any of your images don't fit our standards, you'll be alerted.
- PNG file uploads are converted to JPG in our system, and any alpha channel transparencies within them will not be preserved. Transparencies will appear white in your online version.
