1. Doc? Why not Photo?
With ipernity you can publish all
your digital content: photos, images, videos, music, Word documents, Excel, Powerpoint... That's why we use the generic term Doc
We further understand as:
Images, drawings and digital photos (JPEG, GIF, PNG...)
Videos (MPEG, DIVX, XVID...)
all sound content, notably MP3
all the rest. For example, Word or PDF docs, Excel spreadsheets, Flash animations...
2. Uploading docs to ipernity
First off, there aren't different ways to upload photos, videos and other content. Ipernity automatically recognizes the file types and sorts them into the corresponding document categories (photographs, videos, audio, etc.).
Several upload tools are available by clicking on the Upload
link at the top left of pages.
From your computer & digital camera
The easiest way to start is to select the less than 10 files
method. Simply choose the files one by one from your hard disk (or camera) that you want to upload to ipernity.
To easily upload many files at once, you can also:
-- Pick up to 100 files
-- Install iperUpload
-- Or upload a ZIP archive
By email or from your mobile phone
Another very simple method is to import your documents via email
. You send an e-mail with your files as attachments to a personal and confidential address that can be found in Preferences/Upload and blog by email
and voila, the files are automatically uploaded to your space! Very useful if you want to send photos from your mobile phone!
Via the web
You can also import all the elements of a web page (images, video, music…) or recover a file hosted on the Internet (URLs).
In Preferences, Third-party applications
, you will find a list of programs that you specifically allow importing your photos that you've published on other websites.
3. Send a doc to ipernity by email or from my phone
Simply send an email with your attached docs
to a private email address that you will find in Preferences/Upload & blog by email
Also available on this page are directions for adding a title, a description, tags and also for how to specify sharing options.
4. Uploading photos from Picasa
user? Upload with one click your photos into ipernity!
You just have to install the ipernity button
to your Picasa, which allows you to send your photos to your ipernity space.
Here's how to install the ipernity button
Of course, Picasa must be installed on your computer. Get Picasa?
1. Go to the upload page
and click this logo
to upload the button installation program.
2. Click "Yes" when you'll be asked to install the button
3. Add the ipernity button to your Picasa button bar
Uploading photos from Picasa into ipernity
1. From Picasa, choose the photos to be uploaded, selecting a whole folder or CTRL-clicking items one-by-one.
2. Push the ipernity button at the bottom
3. After logged into ipernity, you'll be asked sharing, album and tags settings
4. At last, click the "upload to ipernity" button.
5. Am I limited in the number of docs that I can upload or publish?
With ipernity you are not limited by storage space. You can keep on uploading docs throughout your life. For ipernity has been designed to enable you to build up enduring digital memory resources.
Because what we can do is not without limits ;-), we apply:
- Monthly upload quotas to ensure that all our members can regularly upload new docs;
- Display restrictions on free accounts.
If you have a free account
- You can upload up to 200MB of additional content every month (for example, 200 1MB photos),
- Only your latest 1000 docs are displayed and the others are hidden (More info
If you have a "PRO" account
- Your monthly upload capacity is unlimited,
- All your docs are displayed, without any limitations.
(more on PRO)
Your remaining capacity for the current month is posted on the main upload page. A reset is done on the 1st day of each month (00:00 GMT +2). Each upload subtracts from your previous capacity figure. The removal of docs after uploading does not refill your upload capacity.
6. What's the maximum size for a doc?
The maximum doc size that you can upload to ipernity is shown on the Upload
Please note that if you try to upload a file larger than the maximum size, the file will be rejected and deducted from your monthly upload allowance.
7. Some of my docs disappeared. What's going on?
Two possible causes:
You probably hold a free account
... And you have more than 1000 docs in your space. However only 1000 are visible for free account holders. Don't worry, the other docs are not deleted. They are merely hidden.
On becoming a PRO
, you will see all your docs displayed again, without limitations.
You have ad blocker(s) installed
... which prevent your docs being displayed. Simply change the settings in your program preferences to solve the problem.
ipernity is one of the few services which keep the original files of the docs you put up.
You will find a link - Download the original
- in the More information
section at the bottom right of each doc.
You can also allow other members to download your originals. To do this:
1 - You must give permission ( Preferences / Originals and Exif
2 - AND at least you or the member wishing to download the original must be a PRO
9. Saving docs on my computer
To save a doc published on ipernity to your computer, simply go to the doc page and click on the link Download the original file
on the bottom right in the "More information" section.
If the link isn't provided, that's because the author doesn't allow downloading of the original.
10. My photos were automatically rotated...
This is an option enabled by default operating only on some cameras.
You can deactivate it by going into Preferences / Originals & exif
Important note: we rotate photos displayed on ipernity, but the originals remain intact.
11. My audio/video file isn't readable on ipernity
The video or audio file you have just uploaded isn't readable on ipernity?
-- either this is a corrupt file
-- or it's in a format not (yet) recognized by ipernity
We recommend you upload the following formats:
-- For videos: flv, DivX, XviD, 3gp or Quicktime
-- For audio: MP3
12. My video file is too big to be uploaded...
If your video exceeds the upload size allowed, you have several options to remedy the situation:
-- You can break your video into multiple parts
. Then upload the files starting from the end so they're displayed chronologically in your docs.
-- You can also convert your video
to a smaller format. For this we recommend you use the flv
Many free programs can perform these operations easily, like Video Cutter and Splitter
or Ultra Video Splitter
13. Animated GIFs
To insert animated GIFs into comments, articles, guestbooks... you simply have to paste in the original file's HTML code. To find out how this is done, read Publish a doc on another web site
However, since the thumbnails of images imported into your space are in JPEG format, animated GIFs are represented by fixed images (on the "Your docs" page, for instance).
