We are currently allocating resources and a timeline for an Android App. We will deliver it as fast as we can but can't project a delivery date just yet. As soon as we know we will post it here. In the meanwhile use TattooCloud.com with a web browser. Any phone/computer/device with a browser can do everything on TattooCloud.com. Just login with your favorite browser and go for it!
If you signed up with Facebook on the website you may continue to login using the Facebook login button - On the website.
HOWEVER, the app doesn't use Facebook logins (yet). You need to 1. confirm your email address (click the link in your welcome email) after you signup. 2. Change your password on the TattooCloud.com website to something you know. Then use that password to log into the app. Facebook login on the website will still work the same.
Welcome to TattooCloud! You now have a blank gallery with the default "start here" image.
Do sThis First...
Check your email. We sent you a link you need to click to confirm your account. Important.
If you signed up using Facebook you need to create a password on TattooCloud.com if you want to be able to sign into the Mobile App. Do this now so you don't forget. Just go under Account Settings and 'change password'.
Design your portfolio by entering your main-image, bio, select your user type(s) and set up your social feeds.
You will also choose your NICKNAME. This is what you will be seen as on the site and your gallery will be at:
This is all under Settings in the top menu in Edit Profile.
Manage Portfolio - In main menu above - To start adding images to your gallery, or use the TattooCloud mobile app.
TattooCloud admins browse porfolios and help tag them. We also remove tags that aren't allowed. Tags that aren't allowd are anything that isn't in the tattoo. Ie: your name, city, studio. Those are already in your profile so they won't do you any good as tags on the tattoo anyway.
Here is their official statement:
"At this time, uploading via the API is not possible. We made a
conscious choice not to add this for the following reasons: Instagram
is about your life on the go – we hope to encourage photos from within
the app. However, in the future we may give whitelist access to
individual apps on a case by case basis. We want to fight spam & low
quality photos. Once we allow uploading from other sources, it's
harder to control what comes into the Instagram ecosystem. All this
being said, we're working on ways to ensure users have a consistent
and high-quality experience on our platform."
A section of the new terms of service, titled “Rights,” notes that Instagram will also be able to use your photographs and identity in advertisements. “You agree that a business or other entity may pay us to display your username, likeness, photos (along with any associated metadata), and/or actions you take, in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions, without any compensation to you,” the new terms say. This means that photographs uploaded to Instagram could end up in an advertisement on the service or on Facebook. In addition, someone who doesn’t use Instagram could end up in an advertisement if they have their photograph snapped and shared on the service by a friend. Facebook already runs ads that make use of people’s activity on its site.
It takes a few seconds (or longer during heavy traffic times) to process uploaded tattoos. Just refresh the page (or the app if you're on your mobile device) in a minute or two and your tattoo images will show up instead of the "processing" image.
It works to browse your photos in the gallery if you had the app open and your images downloaded (and keep it open) prior to changing to airplane mode. You cannot upload or download new photos while in airplane mode because the app need an internet connection for that. Also you cannot access the 'settings' screen in airplane mode for that same reason. You will get a nice message letting you know there no internet connectivity in this case.
One reason could be the image type and it's mode.
1) be sure to upload .jpg images. Some other formats may work fine; some won't. JPG images are best.
2) make sure your jpg image is RGB and not CMYK. CMYK is used for printing and will not look right on the screen.
